The Renaissance Retreat

Residing in an enchanting Castle in the heart of Tuscany for a week, creating a portrait painting in the Renaissance style with our own private tutor. Pasta making with Michelin-starred Chef Roberto Rossi, Lorenzo and Francesca of Caseificio Murceti will show us how easy it is to make cheese and discover Wines with the Winemakers of the castle.

"We will paint from life with the goal of creating an oil portrait in a landscape as exemplified in many Renaissance portraits. Most of the time with the model will be spent inside the castle’s chapel–while some of the time will be spent sketching the model in the countryside." Your Instructor Professor Timothy Allen       

We will also be visiting Florence for 2 days and Rome for 5 days.

Bookings are now open for interested artists of all levels.
