International Seminar for 55 years.  The oldest porcelain seminar in the USA.
​The Town of Cazenovia was founded in 1793 by John Lincklean who built the Lorenzo Mansion which is now a state park.  The mansion is much as it was in 1793 including barns and the furnishings inside.  The wonderful gardens that bloom all spring and summer are open to tourists for viewing.  Town population is approximately 3,000.

This is a new china painting seminar that is filling the slot of the long operating PPAA SEMINAR  WHICH WAS IN EXISTANCE FOR 43 YEARS.   The PPAA organization has recently disbanded.   
The art of china painting is a very old art that actually began in the Ming Dynasty.
For many years, in this country, it was practiced as a kitchen-art.  Women painted to earn extra money.  Wealthy women painted their pieces for their dowry.
World War 2 almost destroyed it in America and Europe.  Much of the porcelain used was primarily from Japan, Germany, England, France.  Many of the  china factories  in Europe were bombed and destroyed.  American women began working outside of the house during World War II which didn't help it's survival.
This art is received very well outside of the United States.  There are 2 International Organizations in America that are working to help it grow to reach the appreciation from the public that it deserves. Each of these organizations have International shows in alternatre years which contain art that is out-of this- world in beauty. 
IPAT - International Porcelain Artists and Teachers - shows are held  in even years - next IPAT show is in August, 2019 to be held in Miami, FL. 
WOCP - World Organization of China Painters - show is held odd years - next show is in September 2018.
Please come back to view the beautiful pieces in the PHOTO GALLERY after our seminar in June of every year.
