Studio Preniac, France

An Artistic Adventure with Gouache and Mixed Media

24th to 30th September 2017

Marlborough College has joined forces with Studio Preniac in South West France, near Cahors, to run painting breaks at their lovely farmhouse studio. I am delighted to be hosting a painting week at Studio Preniac from 24th to 30th September 2017.

Gouache is a fabulous and yet little-used painting medium, ideal both for painting “en Plein air” and in the studio as well as combining with pastels and collage for mixed media work. Coming from a background in oils, I absolutely love working with Gouache. It is such a flexible medium enabling you to create some beautiful washes as well as areas of impasto which make it easy to create stunning effects, particularly of light and shade. If you have not tried if before, then do not worry, a complimentary set of colours and brushes are included for to use and take home afterwards.

Demonstrations, structured lessons alongside plenty of one-to-one tuition throughout the week help you develop your own painting style.

Taking our inspiration from the wonderful French countryside, we venture outside both in the wonderful grounds of Studio Preniac and to some of the fabulous local villages and markets where you will have time to sketch and paint on location as well as gather ideas to use back in the studio.

A week full of inspiring ideas, demonstrations and time to indulge your artistic self far away from daily life. CahorsMarket

Prices from £1.350.00 (depending on room type)

Non-painting partners: £850.00
