Painting Workshops

Painting in the open air.

Nothing is as wonderful as painting outdoors.
And then , of course, preferably with a sun in the blue sky .
But that we never can control. And the large workshop of Mercedes Choufoer is available for bad weather conditions.

You will learn how to paint  in the open  air  and how to cope with the impressive landscape of the Périgord , the lovely countryside between the rivers Dordogne and the Lot .

We work in acrylic on paper or on canvas ( with min.formaten 50 x 70), where all sorts of possibilities and techniques will be explained to you by a very skilled and well-knowned artist.

This painting week will consist of approximately 24 hours of lessons / guided painting, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday ,

with a nice long lunch break to relax In this region the delicious food and drinks are an important part of everyday life .
We will  find another location almost every day, and start the subject each in his or her own  level . Your level will be upgraded by the day !!

Very instructive and fun . Never a dull moment, but lots of pleasure instead.

The groups will contain about  4  -6  students. And of course, this wonderful painting adventure ends with a dinner on Friday night.

You will have a  painting week where you can experience and enjoy the best of  our landscape in the  Perigord , with an interesting price / quality ratio .
