Chateaux Aoutour

Chateaux Anglar-Julliac

Join us in this most exquisite area of South West France that the madding tourist crowd hasn't discovered yet. Small groups (max 8) with plenty of individual attention. We unpack our bags, make ourselves 'at home' and really get 'in touch' with the locality, the locals and unleash our artistic passions. What fun!

The castles and houses of the Lot are such beautiful subjects to paint like Chateaux Anglar-Julliac just over my friends back fence. We will explore the hidden treasures of the "Lot", that the everyday tourist doesn't have access to.

Art Tuition

Available at all levels from beginners to experienced in the mediums of water color. Each morning after your scrumptious breakfast we shall have tuition followed by an equally delicious feast for lunch. Most afternoons you can explore, laze by the pool, take a long siesta, finish your current art project as you please. Afternoons we shall continue with the tuition into the afternoon, if you choose to join in. Join the group for appretif and review of the days work. 4 days full tution with Wednesday being a rest day, to explore, and chill out. 6 hours per day, on our painting days.

The Tutors:

Katherine Sabathie, water color and pastel, Australian born artist who lives part of the year in Australia and part in France. Katherine has exhibited in Australia and France. Katherine is also trained to coach/teach adults.

The French are passionate about their food and wine and we will make a point to not offend the locals by appreciating the specialties of the area with much enjoyment.
