Our past October painting workshop in Tuscany, Italy !
What a great painting workshop we went through again this Fall. Great people, great food, overall a great experience. What follows are four of the many recently received testimonials summarizing our last painting workshop in Italy.
“Walk the Arts under-promises and over-delivers. The totality of the experience embraces intellectual rigour from Yves’ deep knowledge of art theory and history together with his teaching style; the interaction of many minds in the painting group – their personalities and their personal and philosophical views of life; the harmony of a medieval farm nestled into many acres of broad vistas, painting these scenes with opera arias floating and melding with the Tuscan sun. The gourmet food provided by Yves’ partner, Mónica, and accompanied with Italian wine and great conversation over candlelit dinners; visiting hilltop towns offering cathedrals with 13th century art and Yves’ deepening of our understanding of this art. This entire ‘package’ cannot be captured effectively with the statement ‘Walk the Arts’. It is an enriching and peak experience for anyone joining Yves and Monica in Tuscany. “ (Barbara Cail AO)
“One of the best holidays and learning experiences I have had in my life. A thought provoking, reflective, and inspirational short time that I would dearly love to repeat.” (S. Scanlan, Sidney, Australia, Studio Italia 2013).
Every day opened my heart and soul to a new and innovative art experience. The country environment added to the Italian experience provided by our hosts, the locations for plein air were endless, the instruction encouraged us to be free and express our true selves and the lectures were inspiring. (N. Hinshaw, Stonington, CT, U.S.A. Studio Italia 2013).
I came to Italy from Australia to paint – with a few tubes of paint and mixed expectations. I spent 10 magic days in the heart of the Tuscany and couldn’t recommend the experience highly enough. Not only was the tuition excellent, but the food and wine we were served each day was sublime. Our afternoon explorations to hill towns to both draw and sip “prosecco” and our full day trips to Florence and Assisi enhanced our artistic experience. (P. Wise, Sydney, Australia, Studio Italia 2013)
