Arriving on, September 30th, 2024 – Departing on October 10th, 2024

Painting holidays with Rita Carpenter
Come Enjoy southwestern France (with a Paris add on) with us!
Frayssinet, France is located in the LOT area of France. A spectacular small village centrally
located to many different sites. Le Vieux Couvent, a former 17th Century convent, provides
comfortable accommodations. Single and doubles available. The food is exceptional …. so if
you are an artist, a foodie, a gardner or just want to relax by the pool, this trip is just right for
you! We will be at Le Vieux from September-30th to the 10th of October. Le Vieux has a large, bright and airy studio. Open 24 hours a day. Your very own art space is just waiting for you!
We are driven by excellent drivers to nearby towns for either sketching, shopping, photo
references or soul fulfillment. Our hosts really look after us. Aperitifs in the studio each evening
before dinner! During Aperitifs, we all get together for a meeting of the minds and help each
other with suggestions on our paintings and sketches ( no formal art instruction is given ).
***Ability to handle own luggage, getting in and out of the back seat in a van, and walking
some hilly uneven pavement is a must.******
