Our Workshops - Find Your Muse!
Tuscan Muse offers culinary, artistic, photography, music and writing workshops in this land known for the presence of Muses. Tuscany has been a place of artistic creation for centuries. Throughout history, artists have been inspired by the presence of Muses in their lives that motivated them to create their best work. Tuscany is the perfect source of inspiration. It is a place that promotes the very best work from artists, photographers, chefs, writers and musicians and for anyone looking to spark the flame of their creativity. Tuscan Muse provides the space and the instruction for understanding yourself as the creator of your work, giving you a haven for experimenting and allowing your artistic vision to take form. Once you have experienced the burst of creativity inspired by being in Tuscany, you will understand that it is impossible for your Muse to be elusive in this enchanted land.

Tuscany Food Writing and Food Photography Workshop
"Plated Stories" - Telling a Story Through Words and Images
May 22, 2014 - June 1, 2014
Instructors: Jamie Schler Author of Life's a Feast, Plated Stories and a contributor to Huffington Post Food
Ilva Beretta Author of Lucullian Delights, Plated Stories and a contributor to Italian food magazines Sale & Pepe and Alice Cucina
Plated Stories is a Food Writing and Food Photography workshop aimed at food bloggers, writers and photographers. You are invited to immerse yourself in the art of writing and photography, whether for your blog or for professional pursuits, and to strengthen your writing, styling and photography skills. This workshop promises to fuel your creative energy! The mastery of both writing and photography skills will be pursued individually, yet this workshop is aimed to show how the two work together to create a better story and have a greater impact. The program will encourage writers to think more visually and photographers to see objects in a different way by describing them verbally.
This workshop is designed to give you an insider's look into the exciting world of Landscape and Travel photography. The course is suitable for all levels, from beginning photographer to professional. Basic and advanced topics will be covered with a focus on Landscape and Travel, including the stunning architecture found throughout Tuscany. Photographer Bryan Pereira brings his many talents to Tuscan Muse for an unsurpassed learning opportunity. His images are used by a number of agencies, including National Geographic, Getty Images, the BBC and ITALIA magazine. This is a unique opportunity to learn from an award-winning, published photographer while being immersed and inspired by the timeless beauty of Tuscany.
Tuscany Corporate Workshop
In this workshop you will learn the key strategies to running a small business from anywhere, while traveling or being away from your business in another country. Learn to conduct your work business with ease by using the techniques and recommendations of Gemma Close. This workshop will cover such topics as becoming paperless, organizing your work in "the cloud", training a virtual assistant, the best technology to use, what devices that you need and those that you don't, what to do when the internet is not cooperating, "cloud" storage, email systems, software recommendations, coping in a foreign country, using foreign currency and how to structure your taxes from foreign-based income.
In this workshop you will learn how to heighten your ability to visually tell a story and to experiment with the fundamentals of photography so that the story is enhanced. Ulrich Brodde is a master of creating break through moments for photographers, showing them how to hone their skills to the next level. During this workshop we will photograph in the cities and villages of incredible Tuscan Jewels such as Florence, Sant' Antimo Abbey, Montalcino, Santa Fiora, Sovana, Pitigliano, Pienza, Siena and The Tuscan Coast, including Porto Ercole, Santa Stefano and Orbetello.
