Art Workshop in Florence and Chianti
September 10-15, 2014
This workshop will be about absorbing the sights, the feeling, atmosphere and the tastes of Florence and Chianti in Tuscany. Our goal will be to capture our experiences with sketches in the piazzas in Florence and the wineries and vistas in Chianti. We will use easy to carry, portable art materials like pencil, markers and small travel, watercolor palette. We will take opportunities to shoot plenty of photographs and do some journaling. The goal will be to collect studies, photographs and journals to collect a wealth of resources to use and complete studio paintings.
Your creative study will be for 6-days with instruction in watercolor techniques, line, shape, value, observing and ‘seeing’ the landscape, keeping vivid color in your darks, using figures in your cityscape. Those who prefer to sketch or use pen, ink wash will also find plenty of learning experiences.
Because this is just a 6-day workshop, you may choose to add on extra week(s) for exploring the beautiful city of Florence and Tuscany. Your accommodations will be situated close to all the major sights and September is a beautiful month to experience all the great city has to offer. The train station is in easy reach and will offer all kinds of travel opportunities throughout Tuscany and beyond. You will be free to choose your restaurants, but Lynn will guide you to some great, sumptuous trattorias chosen by local people. In fact eating in Florence will be all part of your experience, meet local people and sample local fare. For ease, we will have our main meal around 1:30pm just as the Florentines do. That means you will have the evenings free to stroll, visit some historic sites, sit in a piazza, snack and people watch or discover your favorite flavor of Gelato.
