A week of Drawing in France
9th to 16th May 2015
Spend a week doing art in this lovely area of France at one of the most beautiful times of the year.
Rather than a general painting course, this week is designed to focus on drawing - the very essence of the creative process. We have formulated a week's programme which aims to expand your ambitions and improve your drawing skills, whilst enjoying the delights of la France profonde. The idea is for people to have an informative but relaxing and enjoyable holiday in beautiful surroundings, with good company and delicious food (and wine).
Ed King will use his wealth of experience in art and learning to help inspire and guide students in the practice of drawing. His wife, Georgi, with over 20 years experience as a professional cook, will try to ensure that the week is memorable whatever the weather!
Holiday includes: All tuition, drawing materials, full-board* accommodation as well as trips out and about. (* a lunch and a dinner will be taken at a couple of local restaurants and guests will pay separately for what they have - approx 15euros for lunch/35euros for dinner).
Flights are not included and need to be booked independently. However, collection and return to and from Toulouse airport will be arranged at the beginning and end of the holiday. Those unable to coordinate flights at a suitable time will need to make their way by train (at their own expense) to Cahors, from where we can collect them at more or less any time.
The Course is aimed at those with limited or little experience to more advanced students wanting to broaden their horizons and develop their skills. The mornings will start with an introductory talk on specific themes, followed by led sessions, a buffet lunch, then afternoons can be spent independently drawing, painting or simply exploring the beautiful surroundings. The tutor will be available all day.each day.
There will be an opportunity to visit one of the 100 designated "most beautiful villages in France", as well as Cahors, the capital of the Lot, with its spectacular Pont Valentre dating from the early 14th century.
