Many of you have taken ad­van­tage of our wa­ter­color work­shops we of­fer around the globe. As you are well aware, our teach­ers travel with stu­dents to places like Aus­tralia, Canada, Ire­land, Eng­land and Tus­cany each year to paint on lo­ca­tion and of­fer in­struc­tion and in­sight on how to do so.

How­ever, for the first time, we are now able to of­fer travel work­shops in oil! We’ve been wait­ing years to be able to do this and now it has be­come a re­al­ity. Our first oil work­shop takes places Oc­to­ber 7-19 with Robyn Collier. This work­shop of­fers 13 days of paint­ing and ad­ven­ture in spec­tac­u­lar South Aus­tralia, with high­lights in­clud­ing the wilder­ness of Kan­ga­roo Is­land and the rugged scenery of Flin­ders Ranges. Robyn is one of the most re­spected oil painters work­ing to­day.

We will fol­low that trip up with an­other spe­cial ex­cur­sion, this one hap­pen­ing May 18 to 30,

2019, as Colley Whisson will take a group of stu­dents to Tus­cany and the Amalfi Coast. Thir­teen days of paint­ing and ex­plo­ration of some of the very best sights to be found in the world. Par­tic­i­pants will be able to ex­pe­ri­ence the unique charm and breath­tak­ing beauty of the area while learn­ing how to cap­ture it in oil from Whisson.

Then, just a lit­tle later in the year, May 31 to June 12, Robert Ha­gan will lead a work­shop to the Um­bria and Tus­cany re­gions of Italy. This 13-day ex­cur­sion will be based in the en­chant­ing vil­lage of Bagno Vignoni and the beau­ti­ful town of Spo­leto, Italy. The work­shop of­fers ev­ery­thing from spell­bind­ing lo­ca­tions to fa­mous sites, all while learn­ing the unique im­pres­sion­ist style of Ha­gan.
