Join LightScapes Studio on our travels to Pienza, Italy, for a Plein-air painting retreat from June 6-13, 2022. The focus of this trip will be to enrich your artistic, and creative abilities on an individual basis in a culturally enriched environment.

 

Our exciting, artistic journey will take place in the peaceful, breathtaking surroundings of the Relais il Chiostro, tucked away on the hilltop town of Pienza in southern Tuscany. 

 

The Relais Chiostro di Pienza is a former Franciscan Convent dating back to the 13th century, located in an enviable position, in the center of the magnificent hamlet of Pienza-the heart of the Val d’Orcia. The Relais, in addition is the charm of antiquity all the  history which has literally “passed” through its rooms, hides a wonderful surprise: the panoramic terrace with a garden set in the romantic Sienese hills of southern Tuscany.

 All accommodations will be provided, including lodging in a private wing of the monestary with an ensuite in every room and every room will have a view of the famous Val d’Orcia.  All breakfasts along with two dinners are included.  We will have a day excursion to Montepulciano an authentic artigliano village you will remember for a lifetime. All local artists will be selling one of a kind treasures in their studio’s so if you want to bring home unique gifts you will not find anywhere in Italy.  Today is your opportunity to enjoy a savory meal at any of the local restaurants all serving  wines made right here in Val d’Orcia.  We will also have a mini workshop on our retreat to Podere Il Casale where we will spend the entire day sketching painting and photographing. This is an exclusive organic farm to table experience and we will be taking a pasta cooking class all together.  After our delicious meal we will paint the romantic landscape of their breathtaking tuscan farm among the cypress trees of Val Orcia.  

I will supply all the art supplies imaginable from pastels, watercolor, charcoals to oils and all the supplies needed to create these masterpieces.  Light weight New Wave Plein-Air easels and a backpack to carry all your essential supplies around the town.
