I've been working with the folks at French Escapade, who have years of experience organizing artist tours, to plan our trip. Jackie Grandchamps is the owner of French Escapade, and I met her last year in Tuscany in a serendipitous chain of events. She was leading a group of artists on a visit to the medieval village of Certaldo, and I happened to be there with my students that day. She noticed some of my group sketching and stopped to talk to them. When they showed her their travel journals and the substantial lesson book that I had given them, she was so intrigued that she walked up the street to find me. She introduced herself, we talked, and voilà! Here I am planning a trip to Provence!
I'm so excited to have a chance to explore this beautiful part of the world and walk in the footsteps of some of history's greatest artists. And I get to bring my painting buddies along!
The dates for the workshop are June 25 - July 2, 2017. I know it's a whole year away, but I wanted to let you know now, so you can begin to make your plans.
Anyone who registers before November 30, 2016, will receive a discount off the workshop fee. Class size is limited to only 12 people, so I'll be able to give each person plenty of one-on-one attention. I know this workshop will fill up fast, so hop on over to my France Workshop page today to read more about it, and find complete information on the French Escapade website.
Au revoir! I hope to see you in Provence. :)
