2016 Amalfi Coast Fine Art Workshop



September 26 to October 2nd


Join us for another amazing Italy Fine Art Tour Workshop in 2016 to the famous Amalfi Coast of Italy. We will be going to seeing much more in: Ravello, Capri, Positano, Atrani and Amalfi plus many surprises as always. Wine tastings? Cooking? Other tastings and more.

My tours concentrate on the Italian Experience and taking advantage of what is happening while we are there. It could be street festivals, market places, quaint city tours, history and much more. We do NOT concentrate on photography lessons but instead on multiple computer classes to work with our captures to create paintings via Corel Painter, Photoshop and much more including Iphone and iPad art and apps.

The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. It’s a popular holiday destination, with sheer cliffs and a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento winds past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves.

Transportation and Walking:

While Transportation to the nearby villages, etc will be provided included, it is worth noting that we will be doing a LOT OF WALKING again as it always is in Italy. Good walking shoes and being ready to go up and down hills is a necessity. I personally am NOT a fast walker but I am able to enjoy the challenge and the reward is being able to eat whatever we want while there. Fabulous meals are provided and more details on that later.

Our world is growing! This year we have many new opportunities! From live and in person workshops to webinars you can watch in the comfort of your own home or on your iPhone or iPods!

We are very excited about all the events, but the Asheville: State of the Arts events are special to us and we hope to add more guest speakers coming in from around the country! We will be adding other Corel Painter instructors and classes about digital art and Photoshop instructors! Subscribe to this blog for all updates! The ASHEVILLE Workshops sell out fast. We only have 14 seats and sometimes depending on the projects we are doing, even less seats! Almost everyone who has attended has returned for another which is something we are very proud of.
