Additional Information

Workshop

Classes will be mostly held on-board, and also among ancient ruins of the Hellenic world. After five days and nights, we will arrive in Datça, where we will stay at the Villa Asina, with its private beach, overlooking the blue waters of the Mediterranean. There we have a large studio (with easels) overlooking the Turkish hills and the sea. Villa Asina is located just minutes from the center of Datça yet it is a secluded oasis. The 17 room Villa was built in 2008 yet embodies the architecture and ambiance of the area. The proprietor is the Villa Asina Chef. His recipes have been featured in Turkish and International magazines. He prizes the specialties of the season so you will have the freshest and ripest produce available.

In idyllic Datça, sessions will encourage personal interpretation of composition, light, scale, color and value. Individual instruction will be stressed along with interactive critiques. We will celebrate our successes with a group exhibition at the end of the workshop.
