The idea of creating together
in an “atelier” with a professional artist,
where a small number of students and
apprentices make works of art under the
master’s guidance and supervision has been in
Rassouli’s mind for a long time. Although he

called Twin Creek Ranch and it contains all
the amenities needed for such a unique idea.

artist, an architect, and the author and
illustrator of over 16 books and oracle cards,
including known "Book of Creativity" which has
