During the day I will give instruction in watercolor sketching and painting techniques. We will have ample opportunities to explore and sketch the beautiful near by cities of Lucca, Cinque Terre, San Giminano. Time will also be available to shop, sight see, eat...and enjoy some of the most beautiful landscapes and cities in the world!
Our Tuscan home retains the ambience of a 600-year-old farmhouse, with its grand fireplace and wine cantina, yet has all the amenities expected by 21st century guests: central heating, modern and numerous bathrooms, even Internet access. The wood-fired oven is used for bread-making lessons for the cooking courses, and our weekly pizza night is offered to participants of all courses and tours.
This is my third trip to Italy and I must admit I have fallen in love with Tuscany. I have found the people to be warm, friendly, and the sites are "eye candy" to the artist. And the food is beyond delicious! The stunning and peaceful landscape, the warm people and the absorbing courses at times make it difficult for people to leave Selva. The quiet, the views and the personal "nooks" cause some people to say, “I’m staying right here.”
Come experience the true flavor of Tuscany!
