Lesley Rich Venice Painting Workshop 2011
VENICE PAINTING WORKSHOP
Eleven days in Venice. Limited to fifteen students.
A wonderful painting opportunity.
Plein Air in Venice, Italy
September 11 - 21, 2011
Instructed by Lesley Rich
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.
