The Americans in Paris Paint Provence.

Casey Childs, Michelle Dunaway, David Gray, Olga Krimon, Vanessa Rothe

The Program

Imagine yourself in a château for 10-days on a painting trip to engage with contemporary masters and learn from these artists, Casey Childs, Michelle Dunaway, David Gray, Olga Krimon and Vanessa Rothe. The program encompasses portraiture and figurative work painting models in the environment, still life and landscape painting, slide show lectures in fine art and literature combined with an immersive program to experience the best of Provence.

The Workshop takes place on the Chateau estate of a restored moulin, a historic flour mill between Avignon and St Rémy in Provence. Van Gogh, Cézanne and Gaugin and other Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists worked in this part of France. These historical painters used the inspiration of the region and the legendary Mediterranean light to create unforgettable works of art. Now you can walk in their footsteps while learning from the best contemporary artists and enjoy the beauty and bounty of the South of France. 

The cost includes instruction, demos, slide show presentations in fine art and literature, accommodation, all food and wine at the château, with the exception of optional eating out. We have a skilled crew to make your stay memorable and productive. Plenty to do for non-painting partners with an alternate program. More about the program here.
