Sicily Sept-Oct 2019

Plein Air/Outdoor Painting Workshop
East Coast of Sicily, Italy

September 27 – October 4, 2019

Workshop Details

Previous painting experience is not necessary. You can acquire skills as you paint! The lessons will include watercolor demonstrations, including principals and elements of making a painting. I like to focus on a ‘subject of the day’, weaving in the material. We will have an evaluation/critique to summarizer our efforts. This is a great learning tool for all levels!  We can travel from 2 locations to see surrounding sights.

 Info on travel plans, to date:  Arrival at CTA, Catania Airport, should be arranged to bring us in about the same time. We will have a van pick us up and shuttle us to Location #1, Ortegia, Syracuse.    If times do not match,  or if we are more than 8 we will arrange another shuttle  for transportation.                                                                                                                                                      To date arrivals at CTA are:  9/27/19 Friday       Doris 2:50, Vueling Airlines                                                   Laurie B and Kathy F   4:30    Alitalia                                                                                                           Peggy C   2:35  Delta
