Our Fall watercolor workshop with Joseph Zbukvic and Lisa Wang is located in the beautiful and lush Tuscany region in Italy, providing an extraordinary opportunity to paint with two master watercolor artists and spend 9 idyllic days near San Gimignano and Florence. All while surrounded by the natural beauty of this bountiful region.

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, allowing you 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 the countryside and quaint villages.

All levels of painters will benefit from this workshop, from fearless beginners to professional artists.

The cost includes accommodations in a shared room, 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 that are at the artists' own expense, and are optional. Our pick-up point is the Florence airport.

Your itinerary includes painting with Joseph and Lisa in fabulous locations, including markets, vineyards, and visits to breathtaking villages. We visit the Uffizi in Florence to view the masterpieces of Michelangelo, Botticelli, Da Vinci, Raphael, and many other works of art. There will be an entire day to explore Florence, the Duomo and Giotto’s tower, the Arno river, and a view of the rooftops. Other destinations include St Gimignano and Siena. 

The accommodation is perfectly situated for painting with views of the surrounding vineyards, both close and distant and vista dotted with castles and villas. 

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.
