Dave Santillanes Workshop in Southwestern France, Oct 6-14 2025

From USD $6,100.00
  • Duration: 9 Days
  • Product code: WIF-Santi-2025

Our October oil painting workshop with Dave Santillanes is located in the Languedoc region of the South of France. It is an extraordinary opportunity to paint with a master plein air painter. You'll spend 9 days learning from Dave as he demos, explains his methods, and provides assistance and critiques. All while surrounded by the natural beauty and bounty of the French countryside.

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 the Montpellier Airport or train station.

 Your itinerary includes painting with Dave 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 a living master 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. Some drawing and painting experience is recommended.

This is an oil painting workshop where non-painting partners are welcome. There will be plenty for them to do. 

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