Escape to Italy with your sketchbook!
29 August – 5 September and 8–15 September
At: Terenzano, Italy
I am really excited by this wonderful visit to Italy, this is the perfect opportunity to share some of my enthusiasm in a beautiful place and with lots of fun! I love all things Italian, and I am greatly looking forward to the pleasures of the glorious Tuscan landscape, the particular colours, the local architecture, the ambience and of course the food (and wine!). Bring your sketchbooks and some paints and enjoy it all with me!
Each day will be different: we might be staying put in Terenzano, or going out on a day-trip; wherever we are, there’s likely to be a morning session focusing on different aspects – the fabulous views, the Tuscan architecture (including a bit about perspective), the immediate surroundings, how to make a painting sing, what colours to use, plus help in using your materials, whether that’s charcoal, pencil, pen, watercolour, pastels or water-soluble pencils. Afternoons will be laid back – a chance to carry on painting if you like, or just take time off to relax. There’ll also be the opportunity for every student to have a tutorial, and Marianne will be very happy to give demonstrations too. You’ll need to bring your own sketchbook and materials, though we’ll have a few supplementary materials available too.
