The Color and Mysteries of Assisi
Instructor: C. Finley
Thursday, June 29, 2023   -   Wednesday, July 12, 2023

Spend two magical weeks in Assisi, Italy the home of Saint Francis, and explore the charming region of Umbria while creating a visual diary of all that Italy has to offer. In this painting workshop the landscape and mysteries of Assisi will be our muse as we create vibrant art together. Working both in the studio and outdoors participants will discover the transformational experience of painting with emphasis on the unique color and light of the region. Be inspired by the beauty and richness of Assisi as well as its art and history where your artistic practice will be nourished.
