28th May – 11th June 2016

Regina is an award winning artist and will share with you her approach and passion for painting on what will be her fourth international painting tour.

Participants can choose to paint in their chosen medium although Regina will be demonstrating in pastels and pen and wash.

Let Regina show you ways to select and interpret in paint the stunning scenery of the Italian countryside and townships with emphasis on composition basics, drawing and simplification of a subject.

Regina will demonstrate regularly and provide ongoing guidance and appraisal.

And for the non-painters

While Regina is tutoring, Janette Garbuio will be chaperoning the cultural enthusiasts. There is never a dull moment as there is always new areas to explore, historical stories to read and hear. Janette is fluent in Italian and enjoys showing the beauty of the majestic mountainous regions and to communicate with the locals.
