The brilliant blues, warm golds, and lavender of southern France are what brought him to the area. Award-winning professional artist Sharon Rusch Shaver will offer guidance and demonstrations to capture subject matter that Van Gogh loved about the area. You will enjoy en-suite accommodations in an authentic historic Maison, ground transfers to sites, and gourmet chef-prepared meals. All mediums and levels of ability are welcome.

"Painting in the French Alps: Watermedia Painting Workshop"
August 25 - September 1, 2019
 

Come explore the magnificent French Alps with us! This is a mixed-media workshop, and I will demo in watercolor and/or acrylic with occasional dabblings into collage and texture. We’ll work both on location and in the studio. Our days are relaxed and informative (with lots of good food and laughing in the mix). If you are a first-time plein air painter (and afraid), you’ll find it painless! Advanced painters will discover new techniques and creative solutions with color & design, which will move your work to a new level. There will be demos, hand-outs and personal attention. The best part is our camaraderie, learning from each other, sharing our adventures and painting incredible memories.
