A week in Provence
23/06/2024 @ 18:00:28/06/2024 @ 18:0050,00€ à 425,00€
Join me for a wonderful week sketching in watercolour and a taste of local life in sunny Provence! For this trip we will be based in the walled city of Avignon, also known as the City of Popes. Sitting alongside the Rhone river, the city has so many treasures to sketch including historic palaces and gardens, quant cobbled streets and bistros, ancient waterwheels, churches and market squares.
In addition to urban sketching and city life we will also take a day trip into the countryside where we can capture some iconic Provençal views over lavender fields and hilltop villages.
The holiday starts on Sunday evening where we’ll get together over a welcome apèritif to talk through plans for the week. Each day will include sketching guidance and tuition and the opportunity to lunch together. The itinerary will be flexible so there will be the possibility of free time in the afternoon for you to explore or relax on your own or … sketch some more!
Avignon is easily accessible by train and the station is a very short walk from the city centre. You can travel by TGV to Avignon from several major cities including Paris, Montpellier, Nîmes, Béziers, Nice and Marseille. Closest airports include Montpellier, Nîmes, Béziers, Nice and Marseille. Please just let me know if you have any questions about getting here.
