UMBRIAN PAINTING ADVENTURE!
June 6 – 14, 2020
Spoleto, Umbria, Italy
Join me for and eight day painting adventure!
Our Umbrian Painting Adventure begins on Saturday, June 6, 2020.
Every day will be a little different but begins with a relaxing breakfast at the hotel followed by painting, sketching and touring many of the Ancient and Medieval wonders of Umbria. There will be plenty of free time as well, allowing you to paint, wander and explore on your own.
Umbrian Painting Experience
Our eight day adventure will give us the opportunity to paint and experience the enchanting landscapes of “The Green Heart of Italy”. We'll tourmystic valleys and mountains, the highest waterfalls in Europe, and visit bridges, buildings and cathedrals that date from the ancient to medieval era.
We'll have guided tours of some of the most fascinating locations in Umbria: Spoleto, Assisi, Bevagna, Trevi, and Scheggino.
Painting is always an adventure in a new location, but Umbria is a location like no other. The combination of clear light, towering hills, and summer greenery will inspire and challenge.
This is a painting adventure not to be missed!

What to expect in my classes & workshops
All of my classes & workshops combine demonstrations, one-on-one instruction and objective advice in a way that allows students at all ability levels to make great progress in a very short time.
My approach focuses on providing information and insights to each individual – meeting them where they are and helping them get to where they want to go.
My firm belief is that fundamental skills are important, particularly for a tricky medium like watercolor. So every class and workshop has a strong focus on the fundamentals, presented in a way that makes them simple and understandable.
Powerful and expressive paintings result from purposeful design and good technique – both subjects are covered in my classes.
