6-day residential workshop

Sarah is targeting this special art course to very small groups - never more than three people so that all activities can be tailored to suit each individual student. No previous training is required - all that is required is the enthusiasm to embrace new ideas and boundaries.

A typical day will offer the choice to paint in oils, watercolours, ink, charcoal, and to create collages. It will offer the opportunity to investigate the reasons why certain materials are chosen and how appropriate these are to the need for expression.

The six-day workshops will combine creative work both in the studio and in the surrounding olive groves. There will also be visits to local towns and museums in Assisi and Città di Castello, to see works by the masters Piero della Francesca and Giotto firsthand.

Delicious lunches will be served in the enchanting spring gardens overlooking the Niccone Valley, and candlelit dinners will be enjoyed at some of Umbria's finest restaurants. Who can resist?
