Ever wanted to paint Tuscany
without the crowds of tourists and visit
Cinque Terre?

We will paint medieval castle towns, walled Tuscan
villages, ancient monasteries, perched above olive
groves, alongside gentle rivers. We'll paint majestic
views of the Tuscan alps above charming hillside
villages. Each painter, also, has the choice on
Wednesday, to go to either Cinque Terra or Lucca to
add even more excitement to the week-long fun adventures!

All while learning...
'How to increase Your Color Courage!
And Improve Your Paintings through Color Harmony
and Color Contrasting techniques!'

Here's your chance!

Painters Welcome.

• Work in Your Choice of Medium.

Mediums to Consider:




I will Demo in Oil, Acrylic & Watercolor
but can assist and teach all mediums.

• No experience necessary!

• Spouses and Partners Welcome!

• ONLY twelve spots available!

Our emphasis will be on learning the
core elements of successful paintings
- Color, composition, focal point, light source, values,
positive & negative shapes, volumes, edges,
brushwork & perspective, and much more.

Art Workshop Instructor, Maggie Renner Hellmann
will share with you her craft & knowledge of the
important foundations of painting, and help you to
free yourself from stagnant color choices.

Maggie will share with you color theory and
the concept of using color contrasts
to push and pull elements in your painting.

Each Day we will have the opportunity to paint in different beautiful Tuscan locations.

"Participating in a workshop with Maggie is a delight! 
She is one of the rare artists who likes sharing her knowledge
nearly as much as she likes to paint.

It was great to see the improvement in each artist's paintings
though out the week.

These things, along with her availability to help and answer
questions throughout the day are reasons
I would be happy to take another workshop with her
when the opportunity arises!"
