The Fine Arts League of the Carolinas is once again pleased to return to Italy with a trip to Tuscany between the dates of May 19 through May 27. Based in Lucignano, a small Medieval hill town located south of Florence, our guests will comfortably lodge just outside the town walls in old world Villas with kitchens, modern rooms with baths, and a swimming pool.
Lucignano is centrally located in the heart of the Chianti region for day excursions to surrounding Tuscan destinations. Our guests simply have to open their door and step out each morning to draw or paint the Tuscan landscape surrounded by Olive Groves and overlooking Cortona.
If a day trip is what you want, no worries, a member of The Fine Arts League staff will lead a visit to one of the surrounding towns to draw, paint or sightsee. Morning drawing and painting instruction is available and will be led by Fine Arts League instructors John Dempsey and Christopher Holt. Afternoon drawing or painting sessions are accompanied by founder Ben Long. Participants will be instructed in the rendering of the Italian landscape and architecture.
For more information, please contact the Fine Arts League of the Carolinas at (828) 252-5050.
