2011 Tuscany Workshop Announced

September, 2011

I will be leading a workshop in Tuscany for the week beginning September 17, 2011. It will take place at Pieve di Caminino, a privately-owned 1,000-acre estate located approximately about 45 minutes (south) by car from Siena. The main feature of the property is an 11th century Romanesque church that has been renovated and made into a home for the owners and apartments for guests. Each apartment is unique, and has a minimum of a living room, bedroom and kitchen facilities. Two of the apartments will accommodate four people, while the others accommodate two each. The workshop is limited to 12 or 13 painters. Pieve di Caminino will accommodate a maximum of 24 people, which would include the use of the “tower” in Roccatederighi (a lovely three-story home built into one of the ancient towers in the walls), and all the apartments on the estate.

Most painting will take place on the grounds of the estate. We my also paint in the nearest town, the medieval walled village of Roccatederighi, with narrow streets, archways and winding stone stairways. I will be doing three demonstrations and I will have three critique sessions. I will walk around and make comments on your progress if you are painting nearby and would like comments on your work in progress.

The cost is $1,500 for those taking the workshop and $1,200 for those not taking it. The price includes the workshop and accommodations only.
