As our course runs from Monday to Friday we invite you to arrive on the Sunday before, in time for our welcome dinner. Departures are on Saturdays. You can come for just one week, or stay for two.
If you are taking the TGV to or from Avignon, which is quick and direct from Paris (under three hours) we can collect you and drop you off. We will have a minivan for group transportation for all outings during the course. If you prefer to drive yourself, car rentals are available at the TGV station, which must be reserved in advance.
We will meet each morning at 9am and prepare to either work in the studio or collect our supplies to paint en plein air at a nearby location. If on any day we are scheduled to paint outside and you would prefer to stay and work in the studio, you are welcome to do so, with the knowledge it will be without instruction.
We will paint for approximately three and a half hours in the morning and then take two hours for lunch with time to relax. We will meet again in the studio at 3pm and paint until 6pm, or longer if you prefer.
There will be a weekly outing to the Wednesday market in Mouriés. After the first day in the studio, we will spend one half day painting outside, visiting stunning landscapes, vineyards, hilltop towns and more, and the other half in the studio. A delicious Provencal lunch and dinner with wine will be prepared by a local cook and served in the dining room at Fourwinds. Breakfast will be available to serve yourself.
