Contemporary painting workshops with our highly experience, professional artists are a wonderful opportunity for your group to immerse themselves in the study of creating artworks within classically beautiful landscapes. With the instruction of a knowledgeable, accomplished, and passionate teacher, you will experience first-hand the best of food, art history and travel.
Designed to foster creativity at all levels, these workshop allow groups to work in various mediums for an enjoyable exploration of contemporary creative skills in the heart of natural European, Moroccan or California landscapes. Working both inside a studio and outdoors, your group will learn to think critically and creatively through sketches, drawing, painting, and photographic reference, putting together high-impact paintings using color theory and composition. Color theory will be used to move beyond basics into expressive creations with strong, effective compositions. Groups will learn how artists from various art movements – such as the Cubists, Modernists, and Abstract Expressionists – thought about and used color, form and composition.
Retreats will begin with black and white compositional exercises and progress to tonal studies of micro and macro composition. Use of color and material will then be introduced, including an overview of color theory. Emphasis will be on composition, technique, and complex material development. Our group will meet in the studio for slide discussions, group critique, and studio work. Guests will receive focused and individual instruction and attention. This is a fantastic Team Building opportunity for your company employees, executive team or simply for your group of friends!

"This workshop was really transforming! Our group of ten enjoyed a solid week of art, wine and travel in the Italian countryside with really insightful learning and team building as an added bonus. Bravo! A++"
— R. Adams, HR VP, Chicago
"I am not an artist and really never thought I would enjoy something like this. But it's honestly much more than just an art workshop. It allowed all 12 of us to work side by side doing something outside of our normal play-pen and it was a hoot! I loved the enormous house you had for everyone in Tuscany! How stunning!"
— Jennie Draper, Consultant, Savannah
"We want to thank you for this very creative idea! When we took customers to the Indy 500 a few years ago that was really enjoyable. But I wanted to do something different for our top internal sales talent as an incentive and reward. This was amazing. Thank you!"
— M. Peterson, National Sales Mgr, Salt Lake City
