Your 10 days will be a beautiful blend of studio time, delightful excursions, cultural experiences and of course, plenty of free time to rest and explore!
You can arrive, unpack your suitcase (and your art supplies) and truly relax, since the entire group will make its home at the gorgeous Perigord Retreat Villas – complete with indoor pool, spacious studio and stunning gardens! We told you it was dreamy!
Come away with me to, paint, explore, and develop your Watercolour passions at the beautiful Perigord Retreats in the legendary Dordogne region in the South – West of France.This area is well known for it’s beautiful Landscapes, quaint villages, and unique sights, not to mention the centuries of wonderful French History.We will be based 5minutes from the medieval town of Gourdon. There are so many attractions and painting opportunities throughout the region and in the immediate area, and we have chosen the best time of the year to combine late July/August when the rolling fields of Lavender, Sunflowers, and wildflowers should be at their peak, a marvellous time to be painting in France!
This workshop experience includes airport transfers, full board and lodgings, all excursions and includes everything we require to maximise the area’s outstanding natural beauty and local gastronomy! The Watercolour tuition from Terry is always exceptional, he is a regular Tutor throughout Australia and overseas and has award winning paintings in private collections world wide. His teaching style, knowledge, and sensitivity for Student and Subject is well known. His love for Teaching and painting in his chosen craft of Watercolour is inspirational.
