Painting Workshops, Art Lessons & Art Instruction For Artists
Art Workshop Calendar
Welcome to our comprehensive Art Workshop Calendar. Please enjoy browsing and signing up for one of the many workshops available through our community. Or if you wish to post your own workshop, you can do this for USD$100 to be exposed to our valued community of over 50 000 people.
Notice: This feature is one of the most effective pages on the Painter's Keys site. For example, Carla O'Connor's Figurative Watermedia course in B.C.'s beautiful Pemberton Valley in May was sold out in a couple of days with folks travelling from as far away as Norway. We are most interested in helping qualified workshoppers fill their courses. As such, we reserve the right to reject some would-be advertisers and refund their money. This is also why we now charge $100 - to help ensure that only quality workshops are posted. In addition, every letter features a workshop to ensure that you will be seen by thousands.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, and good luck with your workshop, whether you're giving or receiving, or both.

Come and paint with me in Lucca, Italy, May 2019!!
My painting holiday workshops are all about the fun of painting in a supportive group environment and is suitable for all levels. Mostly, we’ll be painting en plein air (a nice quiet locale in which to play with our paints!) and enjoying the fresh air. I know Lucca like the back of my hand and will take you to some of my favourites spots!! Each day will start with a short theory session, with an emphasis on quick value sketching then a demonstration of the day’s painting subject out on location. We will also explore subject selection and strategies to tackle complex subjects. After a lunch break, I will let you loose to paint and then come and help each student in turn throughout the afternoon.
After a well-deserved siesta, we’ll meet up for aperitivi and on to dinner; Lucca’s favourite dining spots will be waiting for us with a special menu just for us!
Tuition, meals, luxury en suite B&B accommodation, on-ground transfers and excursions are all included!!
