The workshop will be held in my studio in Licciana Nardi, near Aulla, in northern Tuscany, just one hour drive north of Pisa.

Each day we will go out painting doing lots of studies and plein air painting, and at the end of the day meet  to discuss the day’s work and do individual critiques. The goal will be to identify where you need the most help, and if necessary select assignments from the VAA curriculum that will help take your work to the next level.

At the end of the workshop I will give each of you an individual plan for what you need to work on for the following six months.

How to get there. Fly to Pisa airport and rent a car at the airport (there are lots of rental companies to choose from). From the airport it is an easy one hour drive to my studio, mostly on a freeway (motorway).
