FRENCH PAINTBOX's painting workshops in the South of France and the Midi-Pyrénées region combine effortless travel* and rewarding art classes, providing a truly rejuvenating "art education vacation."Some of the most talented, charismatic teachers in all of France" meet near the oldest and best-preserved medieval bastide of the Southwest, breathtaking Cordes-sur-Ciel,
to provide singular art instruction (integrating inspiring poetry and music) in the French countryside.
Participants can be genuinely transformed by our carefully customized excursions, which include leisurely visits to some of the most magnificent gardens, cathedrals, and museums in Europe. Quintessential regional cuisine is served by two very knowledgeable and gracious hosts in a
grand maison de maitre in this most unique
countryside. It's all very relaxing. And our aim is for you to return home from this artistic retreat seeing with new eyes.
*Even all art materials are provided, letting you begin your "bon voyage" lighter than our delighted logo figures.
