Amalfi Coast and Puglia, Italy
Saturday 7 September – Thursday 19 September, 2019
This workshop offers 13 days of painting and adventure on the Amalfi Coast and Puglia, Italy. You will paint the beautiful towns clinging to the cliff face along the Amalfi Coast as well as the whitewashed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline of Puglia. We travel to Puglia, a southern region forming the heel of Italy’s “boot”, which remains relatively undiscovered. Its staggeringly rugged coastline stretches along the Adriatic Sea with deserted beaches, rocky coves and crystal clear water. White-washed towns dot the shores with colourful marinas and the bustle of fishing boat traffic. The landscape rolls up from the water in waves of green; centuries-old olive groves as far as the eye can see. We then travel to the Amalfi coast; it is an artist’s dream where you will be able to paint the dramatic views of the towns along the Italian coast. This 13-day painting workshop with Chan Dissanyake gives workshop members the opportunity to truly experience ‘la dolce vita’, the sweet life.
