Two of our fellow bloggers..Julian and Amanda from A Tuscan View - from Umbria, are starting up painting holidays. ..Set in the inspiring Tuscan and Umbrian countryside, Artist in Italy is offering painting holidays for people who love art, Italy, good food and wine. The week-long painting and drawing courses have been carefully designed for both beginners and intermediate artists who would like to improve their skills and techniques. After spending about a year and a half restoring a beautiful Umbrian villa, they are ready to take reservations for art-retreat holidays beginning in September 2008
It seems like a brilliant opportunity not only to develop your Art skills, but to visit the beautiful location in which they live.
Sounds just like the place for an excellent break...Italy, good food, good wine, great people...what more could you ask for.
