I just got back from a delightful stay at the Feather Fall Retreat teaching a workshop for a talented group of ladies. A year ago they hired me to come teach watercolor and see Sonoma for a week. Generally they travel to take a workshop, but this time they decided to bring the artist to themselves. This is something I contract occasionally for a specialized education workshop.
Some photo highlights from the trip…
–The welcoming day, as a feather floated from the sky
–Gift baskets for each of us at the first meal
–Picking fresh fruit and vegetables for delicious meals prepared by Barbara & Dean
–Wonderful scenery…overlooking hills, valleys, olive groves, vineyards, gardens, flowers…
–Delightful teaching & learning moments (Composition, Color Application, Glaze, En Plein Air, Pen & Ink w/watercolor)
–Wonderful painting outcomes!
–Laughter & fun getting to know one another
–Early morning & late evening walks
–En plein air drawing
–Olive oil tasting
Overall, a wonderful experience!
Think about bringing the art instructor to you! Call for more info, these generally need to be booked at least 6 months–a year in advance.
