Watercolour class in Provence
Watercolour class in Forcalquier (04) From 16th to 21rst of july 2024
Imminent departure for the pays Provençal
The birthplace of Jean Giono, a place of unlimited inspiration for painters since Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse, and so many others... Provence has always attracted lovers of art and nature.
A pretty village perched on the lavender road, 20 minutes from Manosque on one side and Sisteron on the other, Forcalquier is the land of the Luberon and its Natural Park.
Like the impressionists in their time, we will discover the most beautiful Provençal landscapes, the lavender fields with their intoxicating scents, or the Provençal mas bordered by olive trees.
