Once voted in the new York Times as the World's Best Small Town, Todi continues to live up to this reputation today. Todi is a beautiful town whose people are relaxed and entertaining. Events and cultural celebrations are a constant feature of life in Todi and its towns folk are warm and welcoming.
Art Class Italy is supported by ArtEX, a local association created by locals in Todi to promote contemporary art and cultural exchange. It is not surprising that the local artists and art lovers are keen to meet our students on social occasions.
We also have the generous support of a group of ex-pats from Australia, the United Kingdom and America who are highly regarded by the people of Todi. They have all taken their time in their dealings with us and understand we are in this venture for the long haul. We, like them, love the spectacular town of Todi, its cuisine, cultural events and generous and warm hearted people.
