with René Eisenbart

Mark your calendar!
Let me know if you’d like to go. 

An art immersion experience of painting in Tuscany. You will lodge at a picturesque villa near the small town of Castelfiorentino. The rural setting of Ill Grande Prato is like a sanctuary, with great views, a pool and even an outdoor pizza oven!  The best thing about this venue is that they can accommodate a larger group so you can bring your non-painting friends or family. And they’ll cook for us!

It is also near a train station, giving us access to travel throughout the region. This new venue, not far from Florence, is close to Siena and Volterra — both very charming destinations. We can shuttle you to the train station for excursions, or rent a car if you prefer.

You’ll have almost daily painting lessons in a dedicated classroom. Plan to experiment with new techniques and styles. Free time in the afternoons for pool time, more painting or walking about town. We’ll plan a couple of all day excursions and also some full painting days.

THIS VIDEO will give you a better sense of the setting — which is even more spectacular in person!

COST — 
Workshop plus breakfasts, dinners & lodging: $1900
Companion fee (covers everything except the workshop): $1200
