Description
An awe-inspiring week of painting the Italian Tuscan countryside and scenic villages with award-winning artist Mark Shasha. Comfortable, unique accommodations at a meticulously restored former monastery dating back to the 12th century.

You'll begin each day with Mark's careful demonstration of his step by step approach to capturing light and color as you look over vineyards and distant hills. He'll be teaching drawing, perspective, composition, values and color mixing while paying attention to the individual needs of each student. You will learn how to reduce the complexity of landscape to its beautiful basic shapes and how to fill paintings with light.

Whether you are a professional artist or just a beginner you'll be where these techniques were first perfected. Your week of immersion in painting will feature a variety of plein air locations to paint landscapes, villages, and the Tuscan light. Painting will be interspersed with other fun activities to experience local markets, museums and shops. Excursions will include a day trip to Medieval Siena, visits to nearby hilltowns and a Chianti winery.

You'll return each evening to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, have a glass of wine and an optional informal critique of the day's work, followed by a local chef-prepared gourmet Tuscan dinner.

The class is limited to 12 students.
