2019 Workshop

Creatively Sketch and Watercolor your way through Tuscany

DATES: 10/13/2018 – 10/20/2018
LOCATION: Tuscan Renaissance Center, Chianti
PRICE: $2800.00
As many of you may know, I taught a workshop in Tuscany in June 2017. It was such a WONDERFUL experience so I am doing it again! Would you like to join me in Oct 2018? The first week is now full but the week of October 13-20 still has spots available!

Below are some of the details that can also be found on the website:

What a great way to record lasting memories. Each day you will go to a new location in the glorious Tuscan landscape for a few hours of sketching and painting with Marni. She will demonstrate and teach you various ways to see, draw, simplify a scene, and creatively collect information so you can fill up your sketchbooks. There will be daily fun art ‘challenges’ that will help you to think out of the box as you see and draw. You will have time on your own to wander as you find new things to record. After each day of sketching and painting you will return ‘home’ for fine wine, food and fellowship with the other artists. Casual and encouraging critiques and instruction will be offered each evening or you can paint or relax on your own. You will learn how to use your sketches to create larger paintings.

“The week was awesome. Tours and places to paint were excellent. Accommodations were exceptionally clean and food was excellent. Marni was awesome as she always is. Looking forward to October 2018.” –T. Miller

“Marni, I wanted to thank you for the best two weeks of travel and art. San Fedele was a terrific setting to begin with, with lovely accommodations, welcoming and friendly people and wonderful food. The Il Chiostro staff were charming and wonderful about finding so many great places to visit and draw and paint. And as always your wonderful direction has helped me to expand my burgeoning artistic skills. Although I came home tired, I was still flying high from this trip for a long time. Thank you so much”. – Lynn Sords
