 2024 workshop program:

Luberon, Provence, France

In May of 2024 we returned to the gorgeous area of Luberon for two watercolor workshops. The first one was a beginner's watercolor painting and travel journaling workshop and the second was a watercolor plein air workshop. The beginner workshop was co-taught by John Keeling and Lo Mathews and the plein air workshop was instructed by award winning watercolor artist Kathleen Lanzoni. The groups enjoyed the spectacular scenery of Provence with its fields of poppies and lavender, the beautiful hill-top villages, and the wonderful food. We love this area and are excited to take groups to enjoy Provence again in the future.

A Sneak Peak at our 2025 workshop program:

Luberon, Provence, France

We will return to this area of Provence in 2025. Known all over the world for its beauty, Provence is an artist's dream destination. During the days, we will explore Luberon, and its spectacular countryside of vineyards and orchards, fascinating "perched" hill-top villages, outstanding natural produce and the light of Van Gogh and Cezanne. You will soon see why artists of all calibers are drawn to this alluring area.

Mallorca, Spain

The island of Mallorca has always attracted painters, writers, poets, musicians and other artists. Frederic Chopin, George Sands, Joan Miro and Robert Graves have all lived here. The island and its capital, Palma, are overflowing with character, and our base will be the smal town of Valldemossa, located in the middle of the Tramuntana mountain range. From here, we do daily excursions around the island to capture sights and scenery to paint.

Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy

Sketching on location, while traveling, is an art form that you can take with you on every future trip. This workshop will focus on how to quickly capture images in your sketchbook and takes place in one of the most beautiful areas in Europe. We will guide you to the finest spots along the shores of the picturesque Lake Como with its charming lakeside towns, its Renaissance architecture, Italian villas and terraced gardens.



This workshop is a combined Knitting & Nature Journaling workshop. Scotland has the most remarkable diversity of a landscape; mountainous terrain and broad plateau areas, and lowlands with hills. The landscape is dotted with fairytale castles and the scenery of the coastal areas is truly breathtaking. Add its fascinating history and you get one of the most inspiring countries to visit in Europe.

And more to come....

We are also planning workshops to Japan, the Caribbean, and to the Lofoten Islands, located north of the Arctic Circle in Norway.

More info will follow.

Please make sure you are on our email list for future updates.
