One student may be able to upgrade to a private single room (the Yellow Living Room or the Panorama Room, refer to Michelangelo Screenwriting's description of the VENUE) for an extra charge. Let us know if you're interested, but please note that we will be unable to assign rooms until registration is complete. Students should expect to share.

We will not have room at the villa for guests who are not registered in the class. Couples who both register for the class are welcome.

  • 20 country-cooked meals lunch and dinner on class days, catered to the villa. Please note that menus are fixed. We will make an effort to cater to students with special dietary needs and assist with any alternate arrangements they need to make.

In the event that we cancel a workshop due to insufficient enrollment, we will refund all money paid to us. We suggest not purchasing airline tickets until we inform successful applicants that we have met our minimum interest level. However, we cannot be held responsible for air fares or other costs incurred by prospective students. In the event of force majeur, we will issue refunds to the best of our ability. Please look into travel insurance.


We will arrange to receive payments from you once we confirm your admission.

Payments are by PayPal, U.S. check, or U.S. money order. If you wish to use a credit card, you can do so through PayPal.

For Paypal payments from outside the United States, we require a surcharge equal to 2% of the payment amount. For example, you would add $20 to a $1000 payment, for a total of $1020. We can also arrange for international wire transfers, but we ask that students cover the fees.
