Weekend art course in the Alps
Diane will be running a weekend painting holiday in the traditional Savoyard town of La Clusaz
La Clusaz nestles in the stunning Aravis Mountains - part of the northern French Alps, just an hour from Geneva.
Famous for incredible scenery and mountain lakes this picturesque corner of France is straight out of the Sound of music. Colourful fragrant field of flowers dominate the landscape in spring and early summer, whilst the superb russets of the autumn colour the valleys in September and October.
Dianes weekend alpine holiday is based at the traditional wooden Chalet, Fan la Bise. The weekend includes accommodation, airport transfers to/from Geneva, all your weekend transport to and from painting/sketching sites, breakfasts, packed lunches on 3 days and 4 x delicious 2 course evening meals with a choice of wines. Accommodation can be on a sole occupancy or shared basis depending on your preference and budget. Please email for more information and to book your place - [email protected]
Draft Itinerary La Clusaz Thurs 2 - Mon 8th July 2010
Students will enjoy a creative and relaxing time, soaking up the atmosphere and unique landscape of this amazing corner of France. The following itinerary provides a rough idea of the weekend schedule, but students are free to dip in and out of the schedule to suit their mood. Throughout the weekend there will be tutorials involving watercolour techniques, colour theory and practice, tone and hue, composition and much more. We hope that you will return home with a sense of achievement, paintings to cherish, as well as wonderful memories of the landscape and people you may have met during your weekend away.
Our private minibus transfers you to the chalet from Geneva airport. Then after dinner we run through the weekend schedule with information on all the painting/sketching sites.
FRIDAY, SATURDAY and SUNDAY
After breakfast, it's off to the painting site/s in the minibus, with a packed lunch to enjoy mid way through the day. In the afternoon it's back to the chalet for a cup of tea, and later a delicious home-cooked evening meal with wine
