Discover the secrets to teasing dynamic color out of the beautiful landscapes surrounding our home in France with Perigord Retreats. Students are invited to work in the medium of their choice. Nina is excited to share her love of color and landscape with students at all levels!

We will be visiting the most exciting locations on offer in the Dordogne and Lot regions of France. Villages dating to medieval times such as La Roque-Gageac, Panoramic views of the rolling countryside and historical pilgrimage routes make up a small part of whats on offer. This is a trip of a lifetime and certainly not one to be missed!
