Elisabeth Tholey www.elisabeththoley.com painter and owner of VILLA THALASSA ART’ B&B in Le Lavandou, is delighted to open her house and share 4 days devoted to Art and Painting, together with her friend Emelie Jegerings www.emeliejegerings.nl famous Dutch artist.
This workshop will take place in an exceptional and inspiring setting, on the Villa Thalassa terraces with a stunning view on the St-Clair bay, witness of neo-impressionism with the painters Henri-Edmond Cross and Theo Van Rysselberghe. These painters, who lived in St-Clair, did immortalize and romanticize the landscapes of the region in many of their pictorial works.
The "plein-air" concept will lead you to catch the light of the Mediterranean place in the spirit of these famous artists, and especially their precursor Paul Cézanne who lived and painted the close Provence.
Elisabeth and Emelie have a lot of experience with various art techniques. During the workshop you are free to work with oil paint or acrylic paint. You will also discover and experiment the very special natural pigments coming from the Luberon ochre mines.
And last but not least Elisabeth and Emelie will make you live the unique experience to paint at sunrise on the beach!
