with JAN POYNTER
September 14th – 21st 2019

All levels of creative skill are welcome in this workshop/tour group. A focus on pencil sketching on location & watercolor lessons with advanced support for experienced painters working independently in other mediums (Acrylic, pastel, oils etc.).

Enjoy your Tuscan art adventure with professional illustrator and painter Jan Poynter. Explore Tuscany with English speaking guides, group tours & meals included and time for dedicated plein air activity at Jan's favorite locations. Our classic Tuscan villa also has indoor studio/workshop space on site for Demos and after hours creative ;-) The workshop schedule will be relaxed and flexible. Paint every waking minute, explore independently or just relax by the pool. No pressure. No masterpieces required.

Jan just returned from Florence…“I got lots of sketching and watercolor painting done during my May 2018 journey in Tuscany. Some only steps away from the Villa, with great local locations in the countryside and nearby Certaldo ALTO. My wandering and creative exploration paid off with fabulous locations (cafes & Tuscan cuisine) in historic Siena and Florence. There was some wine involved...Come and join me in a creative adventure!”

Our villa stay is near the small town of Certaldo on the regional train line to Florence & Siena. Fattoria Bacio MAP is a working vineyard and olive farm - with their own estate wine & olive oils. You can rent a bike if you want a more active adventure - the farm roads and hillside vineyards are fantastic. (lots of hills...I used an e-bike!) Each couple of days of art instruction & plein air will be punctuated with a cultural tour or activity. The medieval Certaldo ALTO is only minutes away. No cars or crowds.
