One week Plein Air Painting in Tuscany with Joseph Lombardo
June 2nd – 9th - 2018

Join accomplished painter and instructor Joseph Lombardo for a week of plein air painting in beautiful Tuscany. This is Joseph’s third workshop with Art Travel Italy. The villa at Fattoria Bacio and its surrounding landscape offer classic Tuscan views: grape vines, olive trees, cypress, rolling hills, and wonderful light. Wine, meals, and olive oil are family made on location at Fattoria Bacio. We have fantastic food and conversation every evening at our group dinners.

Joseph teaches painting strategies to be fearless, confident, and quick. Students will make bold paintings with energetic brushstrokes and vibrant color. Study color harmony using a tetrad limited palette and make appealing designs with controlled value. Each lesson will begin with a painting demonstration followed by individual instruction.

Our field trips to San Gimignano, Certaldo Alto, and Siena offer a chance to see the sights and paint in the medieval setting.

Lombardo is an Adjunct Instructor at the Columbus College of Art and Design. He teaches many plein air classes and recently taught in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. He is a two-time ‘Best of Show’ winner at the Ohio Plein Air Competition.

Spouses, partners and non-painters are welcome and will enjoy our field trips, group meals, relaxing by the pool, strolling the countryside, or taking day-trips to nearby cities including Florence and Siena.
