We meet in Paris on the 21st and will immerse ourselves in the art and lives of French artists from the 1860s and on into the 20th century. We will explore the magic and beauty of Paris now, and its’ turbulent history during the late nineteenth century, the period of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists whose work we will be seeing. Our roster is almost full, but I understand that we still have space for 2 more people who want to jump in now.
At the Impressionist Museum in Giverny, that incredibly gorgeous village that houses Monet’s house and garden, we will see the Signac show as well as Monet’s legacy, one of France’s most significent treasures, and get a taste of the countryside, a castle filled with art, and French villages.
But what then?? After we return on May 29th, I am planning an annual camping trip with friends and family, continuing to work in and enjoy my own garden, and get ready for my summer and fall workshops in and around Mendocino and in a new location, Qualicum Beach, British Columbia.
The first workshop of the Northern season will be at my house and studio in Little River. I will be teaching an intimate workshop, limited to 5 people, on June 22-24, with a 1 to 3 day option.
