Can you imagine going to Italy to take a weeklong Art Retreat, painting, sketching and enjoying the Italian countryside?
I have an opportunity to teach a retreat in a hotel in Montelparo, Marche, Italy. (Two artists told me about their amazing experience teaching there, and one of their participants said she had a great time and it was well worth it.)
Not only will we enjoy Italian food, great company, 5 star treatment at the hotel and spectacular scenery, but we will also paint and sketch from life the scenes of the Le Marche area.
Le Marche is Italy’s best-kept secret. Known as ‘Italy in one region’, it has retained its authenticity and remains one of the very few places in Italy to have escaped mass tourism despite its miles of untamed coastlines, medieval hilltop towns full of art and culture, it’s hidden beaches, its patchwork quilt countryside, its three national parks – it really is a secret slice of Italy.
Starting at €2100, plus air fare (rates vary to the room chosen) Includes meals except lunch on the free day, transportation from the airport or bus station, three day excursions, 5 days of art tuition. Nonparticipating friend or partner would pay for everything except the painting tuition.
There is one week still open in 2024, Oct 18-25, but I would need to know ASAP if you are interested as that date will not remain open long. Otherwise, I am looking at the fall of 2025.
Are you interested in joining me there? I look forward to hearing from you!
