2010 VISIONS IN THE MISCHTECHNIK
SUMMER PAINTING SEMINAR

PHOTO ALBUM

Page 1 of 3



...The 2010 seminar expanded to three teachers
- Laurence Caruana, Amanda Sage & Andrew Gonzalez -
and attracted twenty gifted artists from around the world.

At the same time, Torri Superiore expanded,
- renovating a large, well-lit space in the uppermost tower -
just in time to accommodate all of us...


(Thanks to all my students for the photos!)


Visionary filmmaker Omananda
made a wonderful documentary of the 2010 Seminar,
now availalbe on his website

He also shot footage for his new project
an in-depth documentary on Visionary Art called

The Golden Meme.
