Rebecca’s Painting Trip to the South of France, July 24 to August 2, 2016

I would like to invite you to join me on a painting adventure to the South of France.
We will stay at the beautiful Domaine du Haut Baran for ten days, a beautiful French Country Estate, one and a half hour’s drive from Toulouse. We will venture out every day to quaint villages, markets, pre-historic caves, great shopping and tasty meals, and return to the studio setting at the Estate to complete your paintings, where I will teach and offer gentle guidance and critiques.

I have been drawing and painting all my life, and teaching in all media for the last twenty-five years. I have experience sketching and painting for the same number of years throughout many countries in Europe, Asia, Canada, and the United States.

Space is limited, so sign on as soon as possible to hold your place on this extraordinary trip.
