Now is your chance to go plein air landscape painting under the Tuscan sun…in October 7-13 or 14-20 2018!

***BOTH SESSIONS ARE FULL (Hope to see you next year!)

Last October 2017, I led an amazing Italian painting adventure at Casa Berti in Tuscany. The weather was warm and perfect for outdoor painting.

My 2017 “Plein Air Painting Under the Tuscan Sun” workshop filled very quickly and it even had a waiting list. So, for 2018 we are offering TWO amazing sessions.

First session: October 7 – October 13, 2018 
Second session: October 14 – 20, 2018

Sign up for one session, or sign up for two! (Please refer to our Terms & Conditions agreement before booking). BOOK NOW below.

Spend 6 nights, and 5 days plein air painting under the autumn Tuscan sun! Each day you will be surrounded by olive orchards, vineyards, villas and picturesque buildings.

Where You Will Stay: You will be staying in Casa Berti, a 17th Century Tuscan estate located in the countryside above the historical Renaissance city of Lucca. Lucca was founded by the pre-Roman Etruscans. An ancient Etruscan ruin is only a short walk from Casa Berti with plenty of painting opportunities.

The estate is spacious, comfortable and quiet with modern conveniences including newly remodeled ensuite bathrooms.

Each lovely bedroom is unique with an ensuite bathroom.

Casa Berti’s grand art studio is absolutely stunning. The large picture window fills the space with natural light as it overlooks the Tuscan landscape.

The studio is equipped with French easels, but participants are welcome to bring their own pochade boxes. (A full supply list to follow after registration).

The beautifully landscaped grounds with a swimming pool, flowers, fruit trees, and olive gardens of Casa Berti are bordered by the countryside with picturesque plein air painting locations nearby.

Benham Gooder, the owner of Casa Berti is a true English gentleman. Ben will be our host and tour guide for the week.
