Painting and drawing in Tuscany

Sat. 5th May - Sat. 12th May 2018


In the heart of the Chianti hills, you will find the fattoria Bacìo on the summit of a hill with its 340 acres of olive groves and vineyards. We will stay in the rooms of its 19th century villa that are all lovingly restored in an authentic Tuscan style.

Mainly our course will take place in its luxuriant garden with its unusual trees and plants. The beautiful swimming pool overlooks the gently ondulating slopes of vineyard country.

 

 

In the evenings we can look forward to traditional Tuscan dishes prepared by the skilled hand of our cook Susanne. Her specialties include chicken chasseur with delicious bay leaf pancakes, zucchini fritters and pasta with sausage and pumpkin. And, of course, dinner would not be complete without a glass of Chianti from the surrounding vineyards.

 

 

Models are available for nude studies in the mornings. After lunch, students venture out into the natural surroundings to draw scenes of the Tuscan landscape. On two or three afternoons we will produce portraits of local residents. The free day can be used for trips to Siena, Florence or Pisa.

Costs for accommodation, half-board and tuition: from € 925
