This past summer, I made a trip to Italy to participate in the JSS master program in Civita Castellana with Israel Hershberg and guest of honor Ann Gale.

The master program is an intense six week immersion into painting. It’s unlike any other workshop or program I’ve ever been to.

You’ve been asking for an episode about my experience there, but rather than paint kind of a ‘what I did on my summer break’ picture, I wanted to create something more useful for you.

Im going to talk about my experience in the context of how to get the most out of a course or workshop.

We’ll cover in depth a few concepts that are critical to doing this – and these concepts, by the way, apply to any learning experience. Afterwards, I’ll describe what the JSS program is like, because I’ve been getting a lot of questions about that.
