Our May workshop with Aldo Balding and Teresa Oaxaca is located between Carcassonne and Toulouse in the South of France. It is an extraordinary opportunity to paint with other artists and spend 9 idyllic days in the South of France closer to Spain. All the while surrounded by the natural beauty and bounty of the region

The estate is only an hour from Toulouse. The cost includes all accommodations, food on the estate (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), grab-and-go lunch ingredients if painting off the estate, entrances to venues, and ground transportation. One elegant group meal out is at the guest's expense as well as a luncheon. Our pick-up point is Toulouse Airport. Other pick-up points may be arranged.

Carcassonne is a world heritage site. It is surrounded by many historical landmarks and the legendary light that artists have revered for centuries. We will visit Carcassonne and the old cité where you will discover how this key site shaped history.  Your itinerary includes painting in fabulous locations,  markets, vineyards, and visits to breathtaking hilltop villages. We’ve chosen locations where we have access to our vehicles, materials and cafés. Bring your camera because you will want to snap references to paint later as you will be truly inspired by your surroundings. Non-painting partners are welcomed.

The purpose of the art retreat is to elevate your skills and make art in distraction-free aesthetic surroundings! You'll find camaraderie, connections, motivation, and above all, inspiration as an artist.

Suitable for artists of all levels and all media, from fearless beginners to painting professionals. Non-painting partners are welcome. 

Once registered, we'll be in touch with all the details to help you arrive prepared.
