Joseph Zbukvic and Lisa Wang Watercolor Workshop in Provence
- Duration: 9 Days
- Location: Châteauneuf de Gadagne, Vaucluse
- Product code: WIF-JZLW-2023
Our Spring watercolor workshop with Joseph Zbukvic and Lisa Wang is located east of Avignon in Provence. It is an extraordinary opportunity to paint with two master watercolor artists and spend 9 idyllic days in the South of France. All while surrounded by the natural beauty and bounty of Provence.
The workshop is structured so that you can learn from both these award-winning and internationally recognized watercolor painters. First up is Lisa Wang's intensive workshop. She will be teaching successful watercolor painting using selected images as the source material. This is an excellent way of learning watercolor painting without the added challenges of being outdoors, painting from life. Lisa will show us how to create a spontaneous image full of emotion and atmosphere from reference photographs. You will be able to adopt and use these techniques in your own painting! Bring your iPad or tablet.
After this, Joseph will step up as the instructor and we will go on a journey of learning from this master artist while plein air painting. We will visit various sites including hilltop villages and surrounding countryside as well as our own estate to paint views of Provence.
All levels of painters will benefit from this workshop, from fearless beginners to professional artists.
The historic chateau is only 40 minutes from Avignon. 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. We have two official meals out which are at the artists' own expense, and are optional. Our pick-up point is either of the 2 train stations on Avignon. Marseilles airport pickup can be arranged.
Avignon is a world heritage site. It is surrounded by many historical landmarks with an artistic connection. We will visit Saint Rémy de Provence and Van Gogh’s home where he lived for just over a year. We will walk in his footsteps, paint what he painted and see what he saw. We also visit the medieval city of Les Baux and the spectacular audiovisual tribute to artists at Les Carriere des Lumieres. Your itinerary includes painting with Joseph and Lisa 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.
The purpose of the workshop is to make art under the exceptional guidance of living masters in distraction-free aesthetic surroundings! You'll find new skills, camaraderie, connections, motivation and above all, inspiration as an artist.
Suitable for artists of all levels.
This a watercolor workshop where non-painting partners are welcome. There will be plenty for them to do.
