ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Together we will paint for 6 days; the fascinating towns, fields and beautiful surrounding scenery. You will receive personal painting instruction each day. Whether you are a novice or experienced painter, this trip will be fun and educational for all!

 

During the days, we will explore Provence. 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.

 

In the evenings, we will gather for aperitifs and critiques before we go out to try the delicious Provencal dishes, cuisine and food specialties' such as Ratatouille, Bouillabaisse, Aïoli, Tapenade, Beef Bourguignon, Coq au vin, Soufflé and more!

LEVEL: Some experience beneficial but not necessary.
