Dordogne, France Watercolor Workshop 


Sarlat-la-Canéda, with optional 3-day pre-workshop in Toulouse.

Instructor: Lynn Zimmerman, River Gallery School artist/teacher


Join Lynn Zimmerman for an exciting workshop in France as she leads you through some of the loveliest parts of France.Our home base for this plein air workshop is the historic town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, noted for its honey-colored stone building and stone-tile roofs. We will stay in the center of this once-walled town, giving you easy access to painting sites and services, such as shops and restaurants.

There is a large, outdoor market on one day we’ll be in Sarlat where you can stock up for a picnic lunch or merely take in the sights and sounds.Take an elevator up through an ancient church tower to see Sarlat from above. Sit and paint in one of the town’s plazas and parks. Take a coffee in an outdoor cafe, or stroll about on one of Sarlat’s many pedestrian-friendly streets.One day we’ll head out to view some of the many chateaux that overlook the Dordonge River and we’ll stop in one for a tour and to let you paint in the chateaux’s extensive gardens.
There will be painting each day, but your time will be balanced between painting and other activities. Plus there will be free time in the afternoon when you can choose between painting, exploring, or perhaps a siesta.The area is know for its cuisine and of course for its wines. We will dine in many fine restaurants and offer you an optional wine tasking. Lynn will lead daily painting demonstrations and will assist students individually. Artists of all skill levels and media are very welcome. She has previously led workshops for Travel Fever Tours in Provence and Tuscany, as well as Vermont.
