Venice 2020: 8 day Watercolor Retreat
April 22, 2020 - April 30, 2020$2500
Venice beckons us wistfully! Give in and come let me show you why this is the trip of a lifetime!
ARE YOU A PAINTER? Do you like to paint for a few hours and then fill your day with sightseeing? That’s our magic formula! I’ll show you all of the “must see’s” along with some of my most favorite nooks and crannies that tourists don’t even know about. I’m not a tour guide, nor do I speak fluent Italian, but my love for Venice will speak volumes.
ARE YOU A NON-PAINTER? Bring your camera! Everywhere you turn, there’s a picture!! See Venice through my painter’s eyes!
