Tellaro, Italy

Croatia Summer / Fall

In this week long workshop in my favorite village we will explore the medium of soft pastel, working mostly outside on preparatory sketches and compositions for images that are finalized later in the studio.  The workshop will take place in Vrsar, Croatia in the village where I partially grew up – it was our summer place and each year from June to September it was my home. This is where I learned to paint, following Nikola Reiser from an early age. Many people will see the influences of this beautiful land on my work – it is unique opportunity to come and paint en plain are and enjoy the local cultural and culinary offerings. our neighbour Marija will create fabulous local meals for us and we will sketch and paint in the local farm markets and vineyards. The students will learn the fundamentals of pastel drawing and layering along with the unique process I’ve developed in this medium. Classes are small (4 people minimum and 8 people maximum) and participants are requested to arrive with their materials ready. Depending on availability and preference, there are two to four spots available for accommodations at the artist’s home.

Cost $3300 per person

Includes accommodations in local guesthouse or small hotel,  daily instruction and practice and several day trips into the surrounding countryside and neighbouring towns.  For daily schedule and materials list please contact
