INTERNATIONAL ART LANDSCAPE PAINTING WORKSHOP TUSCANY
I visited Tuscany last summer with the aim not just to see the beautiful landscape, art, museums, archaeological sites, but also to be able to experience the special artistic energy of this land more from close.
I found one week International Art Landscape Painting Workshop, organised by
Tjasa Demsar, a Slovenian painter living
It was attended by participants from all over the world, a quite exciting and stimulating international mix.
From the complete beginners like me, to those who had some experience in painting already. But, we all had unforgetable painting vacation.
Lessons were in English and Italian at the same time.
We were painting all days long, also did lots of trekking across the Tuscan hills. In the evening we were dinning in a taverna of a 11 Century tower palace remains and we saw many slides of Italian and world art history.
The agriturism of San Donato near San Gimignano, in the heart of Chianti, where we were staying, was of superb quality. They were preparing us delicious meals, there was a swimming pool on a panoramic point, and famous wines Chianti and Vernaccia as well as the olive oil, were produces by the owner, Mr. Fenzi himself.
Painting in the Tuscany landscape was unforgetable vacation for us.
Let the rich atmosphere inspire you, too.
