Paint the South of France and Paris with Christine Lashley

Paint Plein Air in France: luxurious gardens, palm trees and boats, quaint village streets, open-air market, and unique chateau. This workshop is a perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the southern light that has captured the imagination artists such as Sargent, Van Gogh, and Cezanne. Take the TGV to Paris and live every artist's dream. We will paint along the Siene and at the gardens at Giverny.

Christine's workshop in 2013 was featured in Elan Magazine. Student's work and Christine's demos were shown with an article about French life and inspiration during the workshop. This is a popular trip and Christine took students here again in 2015. 

Contact Christine get the brochure for the 2017 trip, with a map of rooms available. All media encouraged. Demos in oil and watercolor. **A FEW SEATS LEFT**
