Journey Workshops

International Travel  – For something a little more exotic.

We have a blast on our trips! Each destination is a totally different experience, but normally we have both studio and plein-air time (along with days visiting local villages, shopping, having great meals (and wine) and just experiencing what the country is all about.

Our workshops are relaxing and FUN – an artist’s retreat. And there’s no need to be afraid of drawing or painting plein air!  It’s my job to teach you at your level of experience, and I love my job.

 Join us for unforgettable adventures and lasting memories. There’s nothing like it.

Two Spots Open

Description

What an adventure this will be! Flying into
Verona, Italy we will be picked up by our favorite host from Tuscany, Giuseppe Rossi. From there we will go to Lake Garda for a genuine taste of Italy. Lake Garda will take your breath away. The largest lake in Italy, it is stunningly beautiful. We’ll indulge in the delicious local cuisine and explore the charming towns such as Salo, Malcesine, Desenzano del Garda and Peschiera. Then on to the Dolomites which are actually a part of the Alps.

The central region of the Dolomites is characterized by vast chains of majestic peaks and dis-tinctively shaped mountains. Towering pinnacles punctuate the lush green meadows, while impressive rock formations emerge from the rugged and desolate landscapes. Nowhere else in the Dolomites can you encounter such ethereal scenery as here. We will be staying in the
beautiful area of Ortisei.

What a variety of subject matter we will have! Giuseppe says we will have a dedicated studio space, but as you know we love to go out and about. So, as usual, we will be fitting our painting time in with our adventures. We strive to make it more than just a trip….a relaxing retreat to share the art of painting and the art of having fun.

As we’ve learned over the years, the best part of a trip is our camaraderie, learning from each other, sharing our adventures and painting incredible memories. Come join us!

Athens and

the Greek Isles

Three Spots Open

Three Spots Open

Description

By request, we’ve put together a fantastic trip to Greece! One can’t go to Greece without visiting the Acropolis, the Plaka and the rest of what Athens has to offer. So, even though we’ve been on previous trips—we’re going.

We will spend two nights in the historical center of Athens, then off by boat (4-5 hours) to the wonderful island of Naxos. A spot of white in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea, the island of Naxos is a unique blend of ancient ruins and beach culture. The largest of the Cycladic Islands, Naxos is the childhood home of none other than Zeus, king of the gods. Upon arrival in Naxos, hike over a causeway to Palatia, where the Portara, a stone gateway to an ancient temple that no longer exists, stands alone, the symbol of the island. At sunset, the views of the island, and the sea beyond, are breathtaking. We will stay 4 glorious nights in Naxos, with a day trip to Delos/Mykonos.

Then moving to the nearby island of Paros for 3 overnights with its unrivalled natural beauty, beaches with crystal clear waters, exceptional Byzantine footpaths connecting tradi-tional villages with breathtaking landscapes , and the artistic village of Lefkes . How about a day trip to the quaint town of Antiparos, it’s Cave and the islet of Despotiko? All of this is just a taste because there is so much to do on these islands… or you can choose to just relax on a pristine white beach and paint. Finally, we will return to Athens and overnight in Glyfada before departing for home.

On every Journey we strive to make it more than just a trip….a relaxing retreat to share the art of painting and the art of having fun. As we’ve learned over the years, the best part of a trip is the camaraderie, learning from each other, sharing our adventures and painting incredi-ble memories. Come join us!

Bruges is a city that will capture your heart. Bruges, a Unesco World Heritage is rightfully called the “Venice of the North”, because of its medieval architecture surrounded by numerous canals.  Painting in Bruges, the Capital of the Flemish painters, is one of a kind experience.

Besides painting the endless vignettes Bruges has to offer, you will also experience Belgium’s specialties like chocolate, lace making, beers, diamonds, fries and waffles.

Description

We are going to Croatia! We will be staying in Mlini, a small idyllic fishing settlement located only 10 miles from Dubrovnik. Although so close, it’s far enough to provide the kind of inti-mate isolation that is sometimes much needed after a day of touristing. It has beautiful natural stone beaches with clear blue sea, surrounded by rich and fragrant vegetation. We are in a small hotel that looks out to the sea with a beach right across the small street. The immediate surroundings are beautiful and it will be our oasis. We will be visiting Dubrovnik more than once, of course! It is an amazing ancient city with a rich history, good shopping and great gelato. What else do we need? Ha. It is an easy ride by shuttle boat or even taxi. The dock is just a few steps away. We have access to a great pool, too, as well as a studio room. There is SO much subject matter here! and although we will do lessons in our studio space, we do not want to spend a lot of time inside. So, we plan to take two full day trips as well as some boat rides to visit nearby villages and islands. We will paint on location at least once to get the experience in such a beautiful setting. We will not paint in Dubrovnik. Barbara and I found Croatia beautiful, friendly, relaxing. Strolling along the seaside, taking the boat out to explore was great fun. Food was fresh and delicious, too.
