New WCAMI member Nora Venturelli is offering a landscape painting workshop for artists in Italy this summer. The artist/instructor has taught drawing and painting for 20 years and is a Lecturer II at the University of Michigan Penny Stamps School of Art & Design. She is represented by WSG Gallery in Ann Arbor, MI. Work by Venturelli has been published recently in the 2012 May/June issue of Fine Art Connoisseur. She exhibits nationally and internationally; her work is in numerous private and public collections.
Venturelli describes this travel-and-work experience as a “workshop designed for artists of all levels.” Participants will work outdoors in the spectacular, serene hill towns of Umbria, off the tourist-beaten path. Students will be encouraged to work with the materials of their choice and focus will be placed on individual needs. The instructor will discuss composition and design, color, color mixing and paint application. Daily demonstrations on-site, in-studio exercises, slide presentations, and group discussion will “help painters of all levels strengthen their sense of observation, and will help them to convert their observations into successful paintings.”
This Italian landscape workshop will be held July 22 – August 5. The cost is $3850 per artist, based on double occupancy, with trips by private bus. Meals are included, airfare is separate.
