"Watercolour Workshop with Arnhild Kart"
June 11-17, 2022
 

Arnhild Kart’s actions are always based on the clear awareness that only the knowledge and determination of the artist can transform a work from the “chaos,” inherent in the raw, inanimate material, to the “work of art” rich in vitality and concrete in its being. The instructor will support you in experimentation and surrendering more and more to the painterly process and the bold use of colour. The workshop will be held in the fabulously restored Giomici’s Castle dating back to the eleventh century.

"Painting Workshop with Alison Ryde"
June 18-24, 2022
 

Join us as we paint with Watercolours/Acrylics on paper. This exciting workshop will be held in the fabulously restored Giomici’s Castle dating back to the eleventh century! The aim is to create conditions for the ability to create a painting which expresses the observations and insights of individual painters - the basis of originality. We will aim to go beyond the usual, creating something very uniquely yours and an expression of your individuality. We will be stretching one’s thinking and working to find the pure essence of our subject. Simplicity and the impression of light and distance without effort will be our goal. This workshop is useful for both beginners and experienced painters.

"Watercolour Workshop with Mariette Egreteau"
September 10-16, 2022
 

Mariette Egreteau Martelli was born in France but now lives in Arezzo, where she has been a teacher for more than thirty years. She has a scientific background and has always been interested in the link between science and art, with her curiosity fully satisfied in the spectacle offered by nature. Light playing on ordinary objects, and the transparency of sky and water are her favourite subjects. She mostly uses watercolour to express herself, for its immediacy and union between water and light. She is bilingual in French and Italian and fluent in English.
