Nancy Medina: Workshop in Southern France

Lost in the gardens of
Southern France

My final workshop at Le Vieux Couvent in Southern France will be held June 4-14, 2018. Corinne and Bill are retiring from the workshop hosting life, and I’m honored to have snagged the best month for visiting – during lavender bloom! In all the years I’ve taught at Le Vieux, I’ve discovered some extra and amazing fun things to share with my students that are not on the regular agenda, hidden castles and cappuccino daytrip getaways, and the best places to shop in Sarlat. The list of wonders goes on and on!

You are cordially invited to leave the frantic pace of life behind and explore these ancient gardens with me. Unwind, relax and eat, paint and shop in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Don’t delay, ma cheri! You deserve a retreat for the heart and soul, with paintbrush in hand!

Escape to France Painting Retreat!

*Seats filling quickly, don’t delay!* Limited seating.

Join award winning artist, Chris Brandley, for 10 glorious days of painting, exploring, and immersing yourself into the beautiful French Countryside of the Dordogne Valley. Chris will show you how to use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes and beautiful lighting into your paintings. She will demo in oils, but this retreat is open to those who work in oils as well as acrylics. Chris has over 28 years of experience in both media. In addition, she will show you how to create beautiful watercolor journals to keep as momentums from the trip. This experience is open for all levels of painting from beginners to advanced!

In this small group setting there will be descriptive and detailed step by step demonstrations along with one on one easel time and exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings. We will discuss color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more.

There will be plenty of time to relax and absorb the surrounding beauty as well.
