About The Workshop...
Students will enjoy painting and creatively savoring the essence of Tuscany in all of it's splendor by creating a handmade travel sketchbook from watercolor paper. Students will then be encouraged to develop some of their favorite moments from the sketches into paintings in the studio.  Trish brings her infectious enthusiasm, wanderlust-joy, and fun, colorful painting style into each travel workshop experience she conducts.
