Lesley Rich Venice Painting Workshop 2011

Plein Air in Venice, Italy
September 11 - 21, 2011
Instructed by Lesley Rich

Eleven days in Venice. Limited to fifteen students. A wonderful painting opportunity.

I've reserved 8 rooms in a hotel in Venice for September 11 through September 21, 2011. It's a small hotel on a small canal that just happens to be a popular route with serenading gondoliers, certainly not fancy, in fact, modest, but clean and the owners are very, very nice. A perfect painting location in the heart of Venice. The hotel has a terrace, 'perfetto' for a small group of painters to get together at the end of the day for a glass of wine and painting talk.

Years ago I spent five weeks in Venice painting and identifying locations for a class and I guarantee that this "Paint Venice Experience" will be exceptional in its genre ... breathtaking and diverse painting locations, both in Venice proper and on the outer islands. Now every year I return to this city, my favorite place on earth, sometimes by myself, sometimes with a class. Venice can be a very crowded city so part of the exercise is to stay away from the crowds when it is possible. I've become expert at locating walkways that dead-end at the Grand Canal and secluded residential areas for quiet canal paintings and less visited spots for Venice sunsets and heart-stopping skylines for Venice sunrises.

And then of course there is the art all around you in Venice, in every church, on every building, around every corner. Venice IS art. Venice respects art. Venice both diminishes and encourages the artist. But it is an experience that every artist must have. Venice has my heart and I am looking forward to sharing it with you.

The cost for ten nights, eleven days, tuition, lodging (double occupancy) and daily continental breakfast is $1980.
