Join us as we explore the hills of Tuscany through our own interpretive art!

Our daily painting will be combined with other adventures such as:
- Day trip to Medieval Siena to sketch, take photos, explore and shop
- Excursions to nearby hilltowns like Radda, Castellina, Monteriggioni, etc.
- Visit to Chianti winery for a tour and tasting
- Variety of plein air locations to paint landscapes, villages, and the Tuscan light
- Discussions of Tuscan cuisine with our personal chef
After excursions or painting on location, we’ll return each evening to relax in our 1,000 year old monastery to enjoy the surroundings, have a glass of wine and an informal critique of the day’s work. Then we will move to the dining room (the authentic refectory where the monks used to assemble) to enjoy our local chef’s authentic, home-made Tuscan meal, recapping the day’s adventure with good company.
Nan’s Teaching Online for Summer 2020
Introduce yourself to art virtually using the on line platform Zoom. This fun and informative introductory class will cover basic drawing, design and color concepts. Students will explore design principles through art historical references, develop an understanding of color by using and mixing acrylic paints, and create an abstract painting with recognizable subjects in a very colorful composition.
