Painting in Sicily, Italy Workshop

Under the sun of Mondello beach

This workshop is a re-discovery of my native city Palermo, both on the seaside and in its historical center. We'll be based in the sea village of Mondello, right on the cross road of its 2-mile-long beach. We will also do sightseeing and painting downtown Palermo, in the bewitching centro storico.

Palermo and its old centre
Our hotel In Mondello is established within the grace of an early '900 century Art Nouveau vacation town, and in the sunlight of this former fishers' village. On the other side of the Mount Pellegrino (what a breathless view from its top!) -- Palermo is an amazing combination of different cultural heritages.

Sicily dates: May 1st to 8, 2011

Media and Level
All media are welcome (oil, acrylic and watercolor). Topics include composition, value structure, color theory and color mixing, brushwork and expressive concepts. The program includes lectures and exercises and is adapted individually. Please check single workshops for media and level specifics.
Happy painting! - Francesco
