“The relationships I created were the best part of the AIP experience. I came home with more knowledge about myself.”

― 2019


“It was enchanting to make art in an open-air structure in the French countryside. Our days were filled with talk and laughter, while learning from a calm and inspiring instructor. Being part of the AIP group helped me find new directions in my practice. ”

― Cooper
