Enjoy the feeling of plein air drawing in Provence with our experienced tutor Brigitte Guhle. We will mainly focus on portraiture and nude studies in different drawing techniques.
In the morning we will draw and sketch in front of our models and in the afternoon you will get the chance to practice your drawing techniques during several excursion through the beautiful landscape of the Provence. We will also do some portraiture of locals - at least one afternoon. Further, we will make an excursion to Valbonne and will visit the perfume factory 'Fragonard' in Grasse. On your free day you can for instance travel to Nizza airport (25km).
Target group: This course is meant to be for beginners as well as for advanced learners.
Where do we paint/sketch/draw? We will draw and sketch mainly outside en plein air. Nevertheless, if the weather is bad we usually have access to the studio inside the hotel, where we can draw and sketch, too.
