Creating Batik Effects in a French Landscape

Artist Openings Available - France Workshop @ Le Vieux Couvent
Aug 25 - Sept 4, 2012 with Art Instructor Sandy Maudlin
....... Hold your spot with only a $500 Deposit !

Discover the beautiful and charming hamlet of Frayssinet, France, with me this summer.

We will have exclusive use of Le Vieux Couvent (LVC), a lovely 17th century former convent, now tastefully restored as an artists' retreat country inn, nestled between the Dordogne and Lot valleys.  Le Vieux Couvent is an ideal sanctuary for artists with its hidden gardens, terraces, and pools.  What an inspiring place to be even more creative!!!
I'm excited to be able to share with you many unique techniques for painting original wax-free, batik-style paintings. We'll also enjoy excursions of half and full days for painting, touring the caves or area attractions, plus shopping at local markets.  Imagine returning to LVC's courtyard for gourmet dining and local wines after a gratifying day of painting.....quite simply, creative bliss!  And the large, well lit studio is open 24 hours a day!
