NEWS & UPDATES
NEWS about our 2023 Workshops:
We have started to plan for our 2023 workshops:
HERE IS A SNEAK PEAK OF WHAT IS COMING UP IN 2023:
The island of Mallorca has always attracted painters, writers, poets, musicians and other artists. We will return to this magical island for several workshops in 2023. You will have several choices to participate in either a watercolor painting or an oil painting workshop or take part in our uninstructed Art Immersion weeks. All workshops will include visiting the scenic towns of Fornalutx, Deia, Soller, and Valldemossa as well as to Palma, the cosmopolitan capital city.
New in 2023! Emily Wahl will take a group of plein air painters to the charming town of Porto in northern Portugal. This will be a week of learning and experiencing the unique culture that is Portugal. We will enjoy the splendor of the small villages and countryside with plein air painting, sample the sumptuous native food and savor the small batch vintages usually reserved for the locals. This workshop is suitable for watercolor painters as well as acrylic painters and sketchers.
We will offer several workshops to this alluring part of France in 2023! There will be a Sketching workshop where you will learn the ins and out of sketching on location. Learning this art form often changes the way people travel - by taking less photos and instead capturing images in their sketchbooks. There will also be a Plein Air painting workshop which will take us to all the beautiful spots with our paint boxes and canvases in hand! And if you missed the Beginner's Watercolor Painting Workshop in 2022, you will have another chance to participate in this "New to Watercolor" workshop in 2023. More information about all our 2023 Provence workshops will be available in the fall of 2022.
We will expand our Art Immersion Program in 2023. These trips are suitable for intermediate and advanced painters / sketchers / photographers / writers who want to work independently but who can benefit from our guidance, and the camaraderie from fellow travelers. No formal art instruction is given. We are planning several new exciting locations for these popular workshops in 2023.
If you have never painted in watercolor before - or if you want to brush up on the basics - this is the workshop for you. The medium of watercolor can be challenging and has a reputation for not being as “forgiving” as other mediums – but by learning the basic techniques early on, students will be able to avoid making many of the mistakes that beginners often do. You will be watching daily demonstrations, learning many basic techniques, and then practicing what you have learned in beautiful local settings.
The Cotswolds, known for its many picturesque houses and villages, historic landmarks, medieval castles, old churches, outdoor markets, and antique shops is an artist’s dream destination! We are planning two workshops in this gorgeous part of England in 2023. We will paint in the 800-year-old town of Stratford upon Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, as well as in the scenic villages in the beautiful rolling, green landscape of central England. More information later in 2022.
THE 2023 WORKSHOPS WILL BE OPEN TO BOOK IN THE FALL OF 2022.
