"September in Southern France, Travel-Workshop"
September 11-18, 2018

Join Lisa Pressman and Norma Hendrix in the stunning landscape of the Village of Durfort. Our lodging, meals and studio space will be at La Cascade. And our exploration of the region will be our inspiration and resource for a week of creative exploration. On our outings we will photograph and draw while being mindful of all our senses. In the studio we will be experimenting with a range of materials including: R&F pigment sticks, oil paint, cold wax, graphite, ink, and pastels. There is a freedom of gesture, movement and process that occurs when painting with these materials. A variety of techniques, tools and exercises are used to explore personal imagery – abstract as well as representational.
