Experience the startling beauty and sensual delight of Provence, France as we follow in the footsteps of two iconic painters over 11 days/10 nights.
Aix-en-Provence 5 days + Noves/St. Remy 6 days
Your host and art instructor, Julia Morgan, will take you on an art-making journey from the poppy fields flanking Mt Saint Victoire and the stunning adjacent city of Aix, with it’s ‘1000 fountains’ to the hill towns of the Luberon, the olive groves in front of Les Apilles mountains, and the hospital and room where Vincent Van Gogh painted the fields day after day in St Remy. We will seek out the town market days with their colorful flowers, aromatic herbs, and bountiful local produce. We’ll immerse ourselves in- and respond through- our drawing and painting to the unforgettable landscape of Cezanne and Van Gogh’s Provence.
Julia has been teaching art travel workshops in Egypt, India, France, New Mexico and New England to rave reviews since 2011. It is not just about technique, it’s learning to SEE color, form and light. And it’s about centering yourself and listening to your inner artist.
Julia lived for a year in Aix, painting and loving every moment; the best year of her life!
