Whether you have chosen Veneto or Umbria, the main daily activity is sketching. Liz will be on hand with structured and casual sessions, morning and afternoon, helping you to make the most of your travel sketch opportunities. The workshops revolve around specific techniques on fast sketching strategies for travellers. Through her dynamic demonstrations and examples you will learn, or brush up on the fundamentals of the elements of classical and medieval architecture and you will explore perspective, composition, tone and colour to give your sketches life, vibrance and a unique sense of place.
Between sessions we will relax under the porticos enjoying traditional local cuisine and fine local wines as well as taking guided tours of the arts and artefacts displayed at the various venues, villas and palaces.
Our dedicated coach will take us between our base city of Vicenza for the Veneto tours or the town of Montone for the Umbria tours to the country villas and medieval hilltop towns that are part of each tour – see the individual itineraries of Umbria and Veneto for more detail.
Our accommodation, be it twin share or individual, will offer modern conveniences with the charm of historic environments in spacious double rooms wherever possible.
