Join the fun with this watercolor workshop staycation to Tuscany! Italy is full of wonderful scenes to paint: windows draped with colorful flower boxes, old textured stone walls, charming doorways, lively café scenes, and rolling hills of vineyards. Imagine we are on vacation painting our way through the warm Tuscan sunshine. With a few watercolors and art supplies, you will be ready to capture memories of your imaginary journeys colorfully and uniquely. You will create a lasting memory of your travel adventures by painting watercolor paintings and adding mixed media. Jacqueline will share her favorite techniques for preparing pages for adding collected ephemera and treasured items while traveling to your art journal. This will be a great way to learn techniques that you can use to create a watercolor art journal while on any adventure. All levels are welcome. Ciao Bella!
