Perugia ( Italy), May 2023, from 15/05/2023 to 20/05/2023

Program

1/ The location

This painting workshop will take place in Perugia, the capital city of Umbria, in central Italy. The « Centro storico » of Perugia is built on a hill overlooking the gorgeous expanses of Val d’Umbria. The city’s historical and cultural offerings, beautiful atmosphere or vibrant life are very appealing for artists. As usual, I have prepared the workshop for you and selected a bunch of painting locations : small squares, medieval lanes with arches, stairways and mysterious alleys …, or even the nearby Trasimeno Lake.

2/ The program

Each day, we shall head off to a painting location by foot. You can choose to paint or make travel sketches. The painting session will last about 3 hours until lunch and the rest of the time is left for leisure. It can be postponed if time is required to reach the painting location. Teaching will take the form of a group demonstration. In addition, all students will be assisted personally. All levels are accepted, as well as all techniques: sketches, watercolor, oil painting, gouache…
