Create Your Own Interactive Travel Memoir with Cherry Sweig

Traveling abroad since 2003 including many times to this French province, Cherry realized the need to develop an adaptive lightweight Plein Air backpack filled with the ideal tools.  This evolved into ‘paintbooks’,  that easily reflect an ever-changing scenery, inspire ideas for larger artworks and capture so much more than a camera can.  Using watercolors as a primary medium, the French countryside comes alive with exciting page designs, a unique regional color plan, tactile special effects, 3-D fold outs, nature imprints, origami and found collage.   Le Vieux Couvent is ideal for this method of painting with the stunning surroundings and excellent facilities.

Students of all levels will connect with the land, the history and the people, to return home with an interactive and cherished tribute to the picturesque Dordogne region. Her current workshops focus on personally sharing imaginative design and painting skills to capture the sites, senses and spirit that unfold each day.  As travel rewards an artist’s passion to create, Cherry’s instruction takes journaling to a new meaningful experience.  Special workshop materials include pre-trip instructions, sample art supplies, a blank multi-media book and page exercises to arrive ready to paint!
