Would YOU like to sketch and paint and tour with me in Italy this May? If you want to know more about my 2014 trip to Italy, here are the details:

May 11 through May 15, 2014 … Watercolor Voyage to Venice - Venice, Italy

May 15 through May 22, 2014; Watercolor Journaling in Sienna - Tuscany, Italy 
The beautiful city of Siena is located in the heart of central Tuscany.  On May 15th, 2014, we will arrive in Siena and settle into a renovated 15th century nobleman's home now turned into a hotel. With our sketchbooks in hand, we'll spend a week wandering the narrow streets of Siena and drive through the castle dotted countryside to visit some of the neighboring historic towns of Montepulciano, Monteriggioni, Pienza and more. I'll provide daily watercolor and drawing lessons tailored to your needs and help you paint whatever you choose from the wonderful abundant Tuscan scenery. You can paint in a pocket size journal or on your favorite size of watercolor paper. You'll bring home paintings, sketches and photos that you will enjoy for years to come. No matter if you are a beginner or seasoned painter, I can help you at whatever level of skill you have. 
Non-painting friends are welcome, of course.  During your week in Tuscany, we will also visit museums, galleries, churches, restaurants and shops (especially shoe stores!). You'll have plenty of free time to relax, sip something in a cafe, taste the local wines and/or take a nap. Cost for the week is $3,150. which includes lodging in a shared twin bedroom, daily breakfasts, art lessons, pick up in Florence and all van driven 1/2 day trips. Airfare is not included.  There is also a wonderful pre-Tuscany sketching trip to Venice May 11-15, 2014, which you can choose to add on if you're interested.
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.
