The scenic beauty of Tuscany, Italy has inspired artists for centuries. In June 2014, I’ll lead a group of artists on a special trip to Val D’Orcia. Five days of workshop instruction spread over a seven day visit to this wonderful area. There is much to see and paint including the beautiful landscape as shown in the photo above.
Trip includes : 7 nights bed and breakfast in en-suite accommodation and 5 lunches, 6 dinners with wine, personal welcome at Rome Fiucimino airport, airport transfers in Italy, visits to Pienza, visit a local vineyard with a wine tasting, 5 full days of painting, local assistant and minibus. The territory is gently sloped with some steeper villages, but we will always be near transport. Accommodations will be at a gorgeous and welcoming spa hotel just outside the walls of San Quirico D’Orcia offering comfortable en-suite rooms, tranquil bucolic views from its lovely pool andgardens, and a wide choice of typical Tuscan cuisine and wines.
Package cost $2,240, double occupancy. If you prefer a single room, add $370. If you’d like to take the trip without the painting instruction discount the cost by $385.
