Escape to Provence - May 2018
When?Start time: Friday 11:00am (11 May)
End time: Sunday 4:00pm (20 May)
Join me for my first Provence workshop ~ Escape to Provence and an unforgettable painting getaway! Follow your bliss and make your French painting dream come true with 9 days in a magical location in this plein air workshop. We’ll stay at the number 1 rated Mas des Carassins in St. Remy de Provence amidst gardens, pools, and fountains and within walking distance of the village. Painting outdoors in oils together in scenic locations throughout Provence, we’ll dine in a Michelin restaurant and visit Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages in France, Les Baux de Provence, and walk in the footsteps of Van Gogh with a tour of the hospital where he stayed. This will be a very small, very intimate workshop with lots of personal attention from the teacher, and the fabulous tours of Carol Etheridge of Best of France Travels, who has been taking groups to Provence for 19 years.
Let’s make flowers and landscapes bloom in brilliant color together in this beautiful getaway with excursions, gourmet meals, and all the peace and serenity your heart desires. Plan to paint, relax, and enjoy the countryside in this workshop at your own pace and your own speed. Open for all levels of experience, and seats are filling fast. We’ll be painting plein air, or outdoors, at different exciting locations together. Please note – airfare is not included in this price and prices are the same for painters and nonpainters. We’ll spend time in both St. Remy and Nice, exploring the local culture, painting and enjoying fabulous meals and shopping.
