PERFECT YOUR BRUSH STROKE WHILE SIPPING BARBARESCO

Description

Receive personal instruction from a professional art teacher while exploring the beautiful Alta Langa region of Piedmont, Italy. Marvel at the rich Italian patrimony at every turn; world famous museums, colossal works of architecture, stone churches with ancient frescoes, and traditional artisans continuing the work of their ancestors. Instruction is thorough and professional, from artists trained to teach various forms of painting. Share the experience with fellow artists, strengthen a friendship and create new ones. Collaborate with other artists, and benefit from their unique experience as well.

During workshops participants will also have the pleasure of trying the local cuisine, and discovering important cultural centers in Piemonte such as Turin, the first capital of Italy.
