Please think about joining me this Spring 2011 at my Travel Painting Workshop in Tuscany,
April 30-May 7th, 2011.
One of my longtime dreams has been to stay in a villa in Tuscany! If you have wanted to try villa life also, consider this workshop. Live in a villa for a week in the heart of the tranquil hilltop village of Montisi. Relax in this elegantly decorated villa, complete with professional kitchen, garden with incredible views, and a swimming pool. Enjoy daily watercolor and drawing lessons that will teach you the skills necessary to record the extraordinary Tuscan landscape. Sketch with pen in a journal as you sip a cappuccino in a café and enjoy the scent of warm bread as you stroll thru the village at a leisurely pace.
Visit neighboring towns, museums and shops. Dine on natural food right out of the garden and savor local Tuscan foods while you sip delicious local wines served in the town’s restaurants. View fresco paintings on the walls of Monte Olieveto Abbey and listen to Gregorian chants. Enjoy gourmet picnics and sketch the landscape which is home to Italy’s most prized olive oil and wine producers.
Enjoy the company of fellow artists as you learn new painting and sketching techniques or bring the skills you already have to a new level. Feel free to bring non- painting spouses and friends as well. Cooking lessons and shoe shopping are optional. Approximate cost at this time- $2,150 for a double occupancy room (single rooms available for an additional fee), all meals but two, and tours and escorted travel from Rome. This price does not include airfare. To view the fabulous villa that will be our home for the week go to:
