Our new 10 day courses are a real success!
Our first 10 day course has been a real success and what a fabulous group it was! For this landscape course guests have come from Canada, the US and as far away as Australia and New Zealand. With so many guests coming from overseas wanting to do longer courses here at The Retreat, we have added longer courses to our 2016 program and places have been snapped up.
The group has enjoyed painting trips around the area, admiring the sunflowers, now in peak, explored the magnificent Roman sites around Ascoli Piceno and also relaxed at the beach and sketched the coastal scenery at Cupra Maritima, where we pitched our easels at the beach for the day. It was also the perfect spot for enjoying a delicous al fresco lunch on the beach. The local sea food anti-pastas, pasta dishes and salads loaded with this mornings fresh catch were simply amazing and so, of course, is the local wine to go with it. .
And on special request, we also included a morning workshop making pasta. What a lot of fun!
