PROVENCE, France Château art retreat in Provence
August 25 - September 3, 2013
This workshop is an opportunity to spend 10 days in idyllic South of France with a group of likeminded artists and art appreciators while painting, sketching and enjoying the natural beauty and bounty of France. We return to our carefully selected Château perched above a hillside village for this stay. With views that will take your breath away, we will dine on the terrace overlooking the Luberon valley.
The intinerary includes a trip to explore the trail of Van Gogh at St. Remy and we mapped out a full listing of alternate sites to explore and savor for non-painting guests. Evenings are set aside for painting discussions, art demos and relaxing with friends and enjoying a good wine.
Discounts available for spouses or partners (painting or non-painting.) Painters led by Julie Snyder, a seasoned traveler and professional artist. See here for more about the prior trips to France and the subsequent exhibits of the work created and inspired by the visiting artists.
"A chance to travel and paint with other artists just adds richness to your life. You are forever changed by the experience. It's fabulous on your resume."

The ideal artist is he who knows everything, feels everything, experiences everything, and retains his experience in a spirit of wonder and feeds upon it with creative lust...
