Tuscany beckons for a Fall art experience.
Painters depart from Toronto on September
29th and return on the 9th of October.
We stay in a medieval village now called Fattoria
San Donato that is filled with old world charm and
colour where they have vineyards, artichoke
plantations, olive groves and saffron.
It’s a painters trip with all comers welcome to work
in oils, acrylics or watercolors. Painting outside, en
plein air is such a wonderful experience. You learn
to see all over again but as a painter seeking to
express your vision in a way that speaks to the
moment. We learn process and composition and
colour. Daily demos, critiques and shared
experiences are all part of that component.
With 2 large, 9 passenger tour vans, Michaela and
I escort you to an Etruscan fortress, stunning
architecture and villages, Florence and Sienna and
I will send you the full itinerary with the trip cost.
We aim to provide a wonderful experience with all
of the necessaries taken care of and enough
flexibility to accommodate everyone.
