Course Overview:

This is a “hands-on” two-week landscape painting class. All levels of ability are welcome to join this workshop. Our focus will be on painting the landscape augmented with demonstrations for strategies for blocking in, mixing color, building and completing a landscape painting.

Civita Castellana offers a beautiful, untamed and diverse landscape where students can interact with the ever-changing light of the region.
