Flower Painting Retreat | 5th-10th May
Imagine immersing yourself in our flower garden in peak spring: observing plants up close, arranging bouquets, and painting all the sights that inspire you—like a modern-day Botticelli. This is the concept of our flower painting retreat, led by award-winning Florence Academy of Art instructor Tanvi Pathare.
Four watercolor masterclasses will focus on an old and healing art form: the slow-paced appreciation of flowers, landscapes, and natural beauty. Following in the footsteps of Italy’s Renaissance artists—who expressed endless curiosity about the natural world in their works—retreat goers will learn to observe the outdoors patiently and take on “a reverence for the variety that life offers,” Tanvi says.
