Join me at this beautiful 300 year-old monastery that has been converted to an art school.

This fun and energizing multi-media workshop will tap into your sketching, watercolor, collage, acrylic, and photography skills.  The goal of my workshop is to increase skill in composition and design through  a variety of media.  Also, the workshop will focus on interpreting a variety of subjects, in a new and creative ways.   Lots of demonstrations and one-on-one help.

All media welcome.  We will use a variety of subject matter and media.  The emphasis will be on watercolor, but we will also use other media. 

All the senses come alive at La Romita:  jasmine at the doorway, the birds in the Linden trees, the goat bells in the olive grove, the clean wash on the clothesline, the beauty of ancient hilltowns, the flowing wine, fantastic food, the feeling after a good laugh, and sleeping well after a long and productive day.  These are just a few of the benefits of experiences La Romita.

Hope to see you. Ciao!
