ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
We will paint memories of these beautiful villages in Provence through plein air painting in the area that inspired painting outdoors to capture the beautiful light. This painting adventure is open to anyone with some painting experience in any painting medium.
The workshop will consist of demonstrations, painting, and one on one easel time to help you create your painting memories of these villages in Provence. There will also be time to soak in the culture of this area.
Amy Evans is an award winning nationally recognized artist who works in oils, and whose paintings are in galleries and shows throughout the US. She has received many awards for her paintings, including the acceptance of a painting into a past Art for the Parks National exhibition as well as two honorable mentions in that exhibition.
