SKETCHING THE SIGHTS OF TUSCANY WITH INK AND WATERCOLOR
With Lindsey Johnson
June 22nd - 29th 2019


Traveling can sometimes be a whirlwind. This is an opportunity to slow down with Lindsey Johnson for a week of sketching and painting the sights of Tuscany. Her teaching style is nurturing and will encourage you to create works of art that you can be proud of with confidence while enhancing your drawing skills. Join Lindsey for an unforgettable painting experience and capture the energy of presence in your sketches and paintings.

Lindsey Johnson is an experienced art educator of all ages with a BFA and MA in Art Education. She is an accomplished representational painter currently working as an art teacher in North Idaho and has been documenting her travels through ink and watercolor sketches for a decade now. Allowing her sketchbook to become the camera while line and color capture the mood of place.

“I believe that drawing is the bone of thought in which I am both fascinated and challenged by. That is why I continue to return to it.” While making rich memories and new friends, you will learn fundamental and practical techniques to draw and paint from life and to do it quickly.

The week will be filled with plenty of painting time. Instruction will begin with a focused demonstration in ink and watercolor followed by individual attention and practice. Bring a watercolor sketchbook on our field trips to nearby historic cities, Siena, San Gimignano and Certaldo Alto. There we will study the breathtaking architecture and picturesque street markets with ink and simple watercolor washes. All ability levels are welcome as well as non-painting companions. Follow the link below for a detailed itinerary.

“Unlike a camera, what you will capture is how the medieval steps felt to sit upon, the warm sweet scent of Tuscan air, the chimes of church bells, and sounds of the rattling dining ware in the nearby restaurants. When you slow down and allow yourself the presence to really see, and record by hand an experience, we leave with a memory a league deep while producing beautiful documents.”
