Fresia Lake Como Workshop Vacation - Italy
Fresia Studios re-introduces you to your own creative powers, to those aspects of life that make the ordinary tastes, sights and sounds of everyday life thrilling once again. This is a workshop vacation and a journey in education that lasts a lifetime.
The painting instruction is based upon French and American Impressionism, the authentic method used by such painters as Monet, Degas, Henri and Brackman. The workshops are available on certain weeks from May through October and consist of 5 weekday classes and 6 nights at an enchanting 18th-century villa located directly on the lake near Bellagio. Student to teacher ratio is generally 4:1 or less. There are 30 hours of class activity including demonstrations and critiques. Students will have ample painting time and opportunities to explore and experience the enchantment of Lake Como with its grand old villas, picturesque hamlets, charming villages, spectacular mountain views, and ever-changing lake vistas.
