Explore the Tuscan countryside through the Southern Vermont Art Center in the spring of 2016 with this great workshop.
The Southern Vermont Art Center (SVAC) will host a trip to Italy, designed for artists and their partners, from April 23-30, 2016. Registration has recently opened, and, says the center’s press release, “Students will have ample opportunity to paint, with plein air sessions led by professional artist and frequent SVAC instructor T.J. Cunningham. Students will have the choice of landscape and village locations to capture the essence of the Italian countryside.
“Students will spend seven nights in a charming hotel or villa south of Siena and have ample opportunity to sample Italian food and wine. There will be day excursions to Assisi, home of St. Francis, and an excursion to Siena, among the most beautiful cities in all of Italy.
“Non-painting partners, photographers, and others are welcome on the tour, with optional day tours available to explore the rolling hills around Pienza and Montepulciano, an area designated a UNESCO Cultural Landscape Site by the UN.”
To learn more, visit the Southern Vermont Art Center or contact the center’s director of education, Abby Pinkard, at 802.367.1311 or [email protected]
