American Watermill painting tutor Mary Padgett’s verdict after her first tutoring week at the Watermill last year: “It’s a gem of a place”
She adds: “You have created an ideal environment for artist guests. All in my group felt welcomed and well-cared for throughout the week.
“One of my goals in my workshops is to nurture connections between participants and you set the stage for us to become a community of artists.”
Mary will be with us again next summer (dates and a link below) and she would love you to join her for inspiring tuition, warm hospitality, stunning locations, delicious food and, of course, the convivial company of like-minded people.
Mary Padgett is a passionate pastellist from Syracuse, New York, USA. She says: “There is no better way to visit Italy than as a plein air artist! We’ll focus on observation with all our senses; looking, listening, and smelling the unique character of the Tuscan landscape to create drawings and paintings from the experience.”
Her students love her teaching. As one of them says: “Your gentle nudges have given us all better way of seeing.”
***Don’t forget you will be Cool and Green at the Watermill: all our public rooms (including the studio) and all our bedrooms are air-conditioned, powered by our hidden array of photovoltaic panels which make us self-sufficient in electricity.
