Italian Riviera Art Retreat Sept and Oct 2016


Join artist Michelle Miller for a painting and drawing retreat in Italy near the picturesque village of Dolceacqua along the Italian Riviera.

In its 8th consecutive year at the same location, this workshop retreat always fills quickly, so new this year, we are doing two separate dates:
Sept 22-29 and Oct 3-10, 2016.

We stay at the wonderful Villatalla Guest House owned by Roger and Marina Hollinshead. The week consists of drawing and painting workshops not only at the villa, but also in the villages that we travel to such as: Dolceacqua, Apricale, Pigna, Rochetta Nervina and more.

Throughout the week you will delight your senses with the sights and sounds of the Italian Riviera, indulge in the incredible (and we do mean incredible!) food and wines, saturate yourself with the culture and let it all resonate in the wonderful art you will produce!

Each year is slightly different and there is always something new to discover!
