COMING IN SUMMER OF 2011: Painting in Umbria, Italy

Russell will be conducting a 10-day painting excursion in beautiful Italy. Umbria is located in central Italy between Rome and Florence and is breathtaking in its splendor. The Tiber River flows through here on its way to Rome and provides many picturesque views as it passes through lush valleys lined with olive groves and vineyards. There are numerous towns nearby that offer a wealth of ancient history such as Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto and Spoleto. Todi itself, only a few miles from our workshop sight, is like many medieval towns of Italy, situated on a hilltop surrounded by ancient walls.

The accommodations are truly ideal. The gracious Gioffre family runs the Acquaviva Agritourismo. The lodge has beautiful apartments for participants and a large community room for our indoor demonstrations, classes, lectures and presentations. The views here at the lodge are magnificent and close to many other inspiring panoramas. Space will be limited. Details forthcoming.
