10 Day Château Retreat for Artists near Avignon

May 7 – 16, 2022  &  May 24 – June, 2 2022

 ~ Poppy Season.

 

For those who are not interested in instruction, but prefer working side-by-side with fellow artists from around the world we have Poppy Season. This retreat is located between the Luberon mountains and the Mediterranean. It is a wonderful opportunity to paint with other artists and spend 10 idyllic days in the South of France. All while surrounded in the natural beauty and bounty of Provence.

 

The estate is only half an hour from Avignon and sits atop a medieval village that it defended in the past. The Château commands stunning views of the Luberon Valley.

 

Avignon is a world heritage site. It is surrounded by many historical landmarks with an artistic connection. We will visit Saint Rémy de Provence and visit Van Gogh’s home where he lived for just over a year. We will walk in his footsteps, paint what he painted and see what he saw. We also visit the medieval city of Les Baux and the spectacular audiovisual tribute to artists at Les Carrières des Lumières.

Your itinerary includes markets, vineyards and visits to breathtaking hilltop villages. We’ve chosen locations where we have access to our vehicles, materials and cafés. Bring your camera because you will be truly inspired by your surroundings and want to snap references to paint later.

 

After dining together in the great room, we take up various painting-related topics for discussion and demos. Although the workshop is not instructed, when painting side-by-side with other artists, you’ll leave the retreat with stronger skills and lifelong connections. Wonderful guests from across the world have joined us for Workshops in France, including painters, photographers, writers, and a sculptor. Hear what they had to say about their experience.

 

Price is based on double occupancy. Single rooms are available. Airfare is not included. Discounts available for spouses or partners (painting or non-painting.) $500 Deposit required to hold your space.
