Join me in The French Riviera
Are you a creative person with a wandering spirit?
Join me in the French Riviera with The Blue Walk Art Walk Tours! Imagine beautiful coastal walks and sketching opportunities along this incredible stretch of the Mediterranean. Based in Nice, we will be out everyday exploring the rich history, markets, harbors and seaside villages in this stunning part of France. Be a Wandering Artist as we pause to capture the journey in our sketchbooks. I will show you how I document my travels through art and journaling so you can create a treasured Wander Journal of your own.
Exact dates have not yet been finalized, but you can contact The Blue Walk for more information and to be added to this tour!
Capture the spirit of Artist's Past . . .
For over a century, the gorgeous French Riviera has inspired some of the world's most famous modern artists. First attracted by sparkling blue water and scenic streets, the perpetually mild climate and beautiful light became a reason to stay. Picasso, Monet, Cezanne, Matisse, Much and Chegall (to name a few), all called this sunny region home. The spirit of these artists serve as inspiration for our sketchbook travel journal workshop together in Nice, France.
The week together will focus on sketching and painting onsite and collecting content for your travel journal. You will have daily guided excursions to the towns and coastal paths along the Cote d'Azur. I will teach you how to fill your travel journal inspired by what we find. You will visit beautiful locales on the French Riviera using the regional train. We will have wonderful food and lots of laughter along the way!
Joie de Vivre!
If you have an adventuring heart and a yearning to travel to new and exotic destinations and if you are searching for a way to experience new places, cultures, food and lifestyles, then this is the perfect trip for you! Incorporate all of these wonderful experiences into an artful, creative journey!
I have designed this workshop with both the beginner and the more accomplished artists in mind. Being a travel artist means learning to use minimal supplies and moving unencumbered as we find paintable moments at every turn. I will teach you to build a lexicon of images to prepare for ‘art on the run’ and help free you from the constraints of making “perfect” art. By learning to capture things quickly and edit each scene, I will show you how to become proficient at composition and design. I will also help you develop sketching skills by teaching you to break down complicated images into smaller bites.
Join this intimate art journey of exploring the culture, food, people and rich history of France's beautiful Mediterranean Coast. Besides the art, The Blue Walk curates an incredible cultural experience as you sample local food and the french lifestyle. At the end of our travels together, you will leave France with a heart full of memories and a journal bursting with illustrated stories told through your sketches, paintings and collected French ephemera.
