A French Dream Painting Holiday With Kathie George

This art retreat immerses you in the picturesque Dordogne region, a lovely rural area known for its rustic beauty and culinary heritage. In the heart of Dordogne, all of France’s provincial charms are preserved in some of Europe’s most beautiful and intact medieval villages. Come enjoy the beauty of the provinces, the winding back roads and charming village squares.

In addition, to ensure a very personal experience and lots of individual instruction we are limiting this workshop to only 15 students. If you have never painted outdoors, this is the workshop for you.

This is a watermedia workshop—anything watermedia –I will demo in watercolor and sometimes acrylic, texture gels or collage. It’s great fun to put a lot of diversity into our journals/paintings. Whether you are an experienced artist or just painting on location for the first time, I will do my utmost to make you feel comfortable!

During your stay at Le Vieux Couvent you can work in the studio, relax by the pool and the rambling gardens or explore the local countryside. You’ll enjoy unique excursions for painting, touring and shopping. In the evening we enjoy aperitifs and discussion of the day, followed by a gourmet dinner of regional French and Mediterranean cuisine.
