YUPO in FRANCE


 
"CREATIVITY IMMERSION" Fluid Acrylics and transparent Watercolor on YUPO 26 x20"

Last month, our YUPO workshop in Frayssinet, France was an experience of a lifetime.  And I'll be going back in Septemebr of 2013 to teach another workshop there. 
Words cannot describe!  The location, so French country; the studio, excellent; the accomodations, superb in a finely refurbished ancient convent; and the food!  Unsurpassed!!!  Each and every meal was delectable, presented so beautifully and so delicious!   French gardens, a pool for an afternoon dip, a lilypad pond to enjoy while reading a book or sketching, flowers, a courtyard for our lunches and late afternoon apertifs'.  Life was so good.  Can't wait to return.  Each of us felt like we had been totally immersed into ten glorious days of creativity.

Isn´t it still very hot in September?
I live in Germany so I am interested in attending next year but wasn´t it still really hot at this time of year?

Hi Cynthia,
Our weather for the ten days - 25 Aug to 4 Sept. - was perfect... Mid 70'sF to low 80F. (However, the weekend before in mid August was hot.) The 2013 workshop starts in early September, so it will be even later. No guarantees about weather, tho. We are in Frayssinet, the heart of France, slightly elevated so cooler than the southern coast. It would be absolutely wonderful if you can join the workshop!!! We will be exploring lots of creative YUPO possibilities as well as other textural surfaces. And LVC is incredible!
