Looking for a good program for Oil Painting

Hi I am an experienced artist but am looking to take my paintings to the "next level" per say.

I would love to hear of some recommendations for a study abroad program or even a good workshop program here in the US for Oil Painters.

My main focus is landscape work, animal work, and some still life. I also do some marine paintings.

My background is in Landscape Architecture, and am always drawn to landscape and natural subjects.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Looking for a good program for Oil Painting

If your interested in Florence, Italy, there are several schools that offer drawing/painting programs. There's Charles Cecil Studios, Florence Academy of Art and Angel Academy of Art. I'll be starting this April at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence. Packing suitcases already.
But in these schools there are the drawing trimesters first before they let you paint..I will start with drawing in April.

In London there is LARA the London Atelier of Representational Art, Lavender Hill Studios, in France there are several school if your interested in those.

California there is one good school (can't remember its name at the moment), in Florida Southern Atelier, etc.
