The workshop was truly wonderful. They worked very hard to satisfy everyone from the beginning to the experience artist. The demonstrations were great! I particularly enjoyed watching them paint side by side, each interpreting the same scene, with their own personality, mixing the colors on the canvas. It was very inspiring. I think everyone in the workshop came out with a better grasp on how to paint from life, everyone challenged and excited to take what they experienced back to their own work. I highly recommend them!Pamela Folsom
Heaven on earth! Antonin and Anastasia's workshop in France is one of the highlights of my life! Excellent presenters, a group of enthusiastic artists, an unforgettable setting, great cheese and wine- what's not to love? Antonin and Anastasia demonstrated in rural and urban locations. We mixed a little tourism in with helpful guidance to better painting. Plus, each evening the group pitched in for fun meals, fire pit chats, and more cheese and wine. Enjoy!Nadene Kranz
