Our enthusiastic American painting tutor Pamme Turner calls her week-long course at the Watermill a Plein Air Essentials workshop (for watercolor and gouache). But she tells me that she is very happy to welcome and help oil painters and pastellists, too. So, if these are your preferred mediums why not join Pamme for her week this summer? We still have a couple of places left.
Pamme says: “I am very open to having plein air oil or pastel painters join my Watermill week. In my California studio and plein air classes, I teach full semester classes in all mediums—watercolor/gouache/oil/open acrylic/pastel/Urban Sketching. My current workshop student coming from Germany is an oil painter as well, and I will be instructing her in that medium during my watercolor/gouache week.” Pamme will be with us from Saturday 9 July to Saturday, 16 July 2022.
Pamme Turner is a professional artist and college professor with multiple degrees in the Fine Arts. She has taught art classes and art workshops all over the world and has more than 30 years of teaching experience. She says: “I am fascinated by the creative art-making process and encourage my students to experience that same joy in all of their works.” A previous student says: “An incredible workshop; more educational than a whole college semester! And so much more fun!”
We won’t neglect your watercolours, of course, and under Pamme’s guidance, paint the glorious scenery surroundings in watercolour too, as well as enjoying warm hospitality, delicious food company of other guests on your relaxing and inspiring week.
And don’t forget that, as well as experimenting with new materials you will also be Cool and Green: all our public rooms, including the studio, and all our bedrooms are air-conditioned powered by electricity from our hidden array of photovoltaic cells, which make us self-sufficient in electricity.
Come and join us and paint en plein air in glorious Tuscany – whatever your medium.
