Hi again Dennison. I would suggest writing a proposal, a summary of what you wrote above, and send it to the following European schools or studios:
http://www.lameridiana.fi.it/(to Claudia Bruhin or Pietro Maddalena)
http://www.officinesaffi.com/(to Francesca Salvatore)
http://www.cretarome.com/(to Lori-Ann Touchette)
France (they are near where you are at the moment):
http://vallauris-ioa.com/via/?lang=en(to Sandrine Rousseau)
http://www.air-vallauris.org/(to Dale Dorosh)
http://www.ecole-cer...ue.com/contact/(to Ariane Coissieux)
http://eltornbarcelona.com/(to Martin Loew)
Germany and Switzerland: I am not sure yet whether a residency possibility is an option there.
Ask them in your email letter whether they can help you with ideas and addresses of other schools or studios, if they can't give you what you are looking for in their own school.
Keep me informed please. Best of luck!
PS: Just got another opportunity you can look into. It's in a pdf file. I hope I can attach it here...
