Mixed Media in France with Kathie George. Full-wait list
This is a Mixed-Media workshop, and I will demo in watercolour and/or acrylic with occasional dabbling into collage and texture. We’ll work both on location and in the studio. Advanced painters or the adventurous will be able to wander through the villages to find your own painting location and work at your own pace.

Walk on the wild side in Southwest France with Rae Andrews. Watercolor or medium of choice
About Rae..An Australian artist who moved to the United States in 1991. Owned a 400 student art school in Australia and two art galleries on the island of Maui, before moving to Austin Texas in 2002. Color and movement is her thing. She loves to push the boundaries with splashy and spontaneous watercolor; design and leaving a lot of white paper visible. Rae paints in all media and has been a professional artist and teacher for over 45 years.*** Rae will mainly demonstrate in watercolor, and how she approaches her travel journals ; as well as larger format watercolors. As she also paints and teaches in all mediums, she encourages students to bring whichever medium they love, and she will provide ‘at easel ‘ personal instruction to those students not painting in watercolor..

Painting holiday with Barbara Barrett and Rita Carpenter
Barbara is passionate about the medium of watercolour, and loves teaching and sharing her joy.
Barbara will provide lessons for the studio and will demo both in the studio and on location in the many picturesque French villages and towns in the area. Each day will be filled with exceptional experiences and painting pleasure. If you don’t wish to paint on location, pack a sketch book and record your experiences. Lets make memories!
Rita Carpenter is passionate about photography and has been for most of her life. She began painting in watercolor in 2008. Without formal education in art, she attended many international art adventures with Karlyn Holman and Bonnie Broitzman. This was where she began and eventually fell in love with watercolor. Rita was fascinated with watercolor medium. It can be wild and free or it can be tightly controlled. The challenge lies in finding the balance. She loves to add collage, pastel, or acrylic to watercolor to get more texture.
