Sketching & Watercolor in Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy October 2013

I had so much fun on my recent Walking and Watercolors in France, this last September, I'll be doing it again in Northern Italy in October 2013. Hope you'll join me!

The Art Walk ~ Italy ~ Walking and Watercolors
October 7-13, 2013 $2650

Our hotel in Bellagio, Italy
We’ll be based in Bellagio, in Italy’s lake district, for a glorious week on the shores of Lake Como. 
George Clooney has a house on Lake Como...
We’ll stay in a comfortable lakefront hotel, and explore this pristine region from there. The program begins on a Monday October 7th, and we’ll have a welcome dinner that evening. We’ll stop to sketch and paint throughout the day on small 5x7” journal size pages, at cafes, parks, and villas; and wander through the lovely towns on short guided walks to see what inspires us for our next sketches.

Classes are perfect for beginners, or those wanting to practice and improve their techniques. Using a pencil, a pen and a small set of watercolors, we’ll illustrate the details of these beautiful Italian villages. Jane LaFazio is known for her fun-loving, supportive instruction, and she will teach you to draw and paint in your own style, as unique to you as your handwriting. You'll learn how to capture the subject in pencil and then add watercolor in a quick, intuitive way. 
We'll visit Villa Carlotta, Italy and spend time there

We’ve also included a visit to the picture-perfect Villa Carlotta, our favorite lakeside Villa and gardens plus a full day cooking class in Varenna with Chef Moreno including morning cappuccinos and treats, lunch with wine, and afternoon limoncello. You’ll love taking the ferries that ply the water of the lake, stopping at towns along the way. We’ve also included a trip to Lugano, Switzerland. 
We’ll have our Arrivederci Dinner Saturday night, and our tour ends in Bellagio on Sunday. But before you go, we’ll compile a small book with all your pages of the Art Walk tucked inside. Rather than a photo album, it will be the paintings you created along the way. 
We’re keeping this a small group - limited to only about 10 guests - so please let us know right away if you’ d like to reserve a space. You do not want to miss this! Email Carlo Roberts
