Artist in Residence
Sergio Tamassia received his degree from the State Institute of Art, Florence, in 1966. Since 1978, he has resided in Sorano, Italy. He is an accomplished photographer and visual artist, having shown his work in Austria, Germany, Holland, and throughout his home country.
In addition to teaching seminars in traditional art such as drawing, painting, frescos, and mural painting, Sergio created and teaches art programs designed to help students find their creative flow. He believes that through the process of making art, we can discover our emotions, learn to see from different perspectives, and find ways to express ourselves. To him, art is self-expression.
He also directs and teaches Socializing Through Visual Art, a program for regional schools in Tuscany.
