Wake up one morning and open your window to be greeted by beautiful Provence! You can pinch yourself all you want but this dream can be as real as anything else in your life if you come and study with me for two weeks in Arles, Provence.
I will be joining the staff of Artist Immersion Program on June 13-26, 2020 for a plein air sketching and painting course. We will explore the town of Arles with sketchbooks, pens, pencils, and watercolors on hand to capture the magic of the place.
Classes take place in the morning, when I will be working closely with students to help them understand elements of drawing and color. In the afternoon we break for lunch and you have the rest of the day to immerse yourself in the culture of Provence.
Provence may have attracted artists throughout history for it's beauty and light, but this region of France is also knows for it's food and wine, especially Rose. The best thing is that you don't need a lot of money to enjoy some of the finest dishes and sips in the world. What more can you ask for? You'll enjoy two weeks of bliss living your own Eat, Paint, Love movie.
"Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision-it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so."
- Charles W. Hawthorne -
"One of the functions of art is to remind us of common humanity. The artist, like the priest, can sometimes remind us that we are bound by an obligation to one another stronger and more lasting than the bonds of politics or economics."
- John Manchip White, Diego Velazquez: Painter and Courtier -
"To defend an artist as original says little about his work except that it is in some way different from what preceded it. As such, originality itself is rarely a strong defense, for it is born more of admiration for audacity and perseverance than necessarily of understanding." - James H. Rubin, Manet's Silence and the Poetics of Bouquets -
