About The Event
Take a day out to soak in the peaceful and refreshing energy on top of the hill where this village is founded. You’ll enjoy a day of friendship and creativity. Learn or improve your technique and try your hand at capturing the essence of nature under your art instructor’s guidance.
Take a journey through time and relive the twists and turns of the village’s history, from when it was controlled by the Celto-Ligurians, to the reconstruction by the Italians in the late 15th century, up to the creation of the Sophia-Antipolis technology park.
There are a few mysteries behind the names of places in Biot. Discover the meaning of the expressions that lend their names to Biot’s streets and squares, as well as the definitions of the Provençal words that add a touch of authenticity to the village’s linguistic heritage.
Morning sketching in the little and back alleys of Biot
Your art instructor will help you capture lines of roofs, fountains and colours of houses through sketching and watercolour painting. By lunchtime, your travelling notepad - “travelogue” - will be full of the mornings’ drawings, your memories on paper forever…
Chat art, architecture and anything else over a delicious Provençal picnic lunch, freshly prepared using local products: cheeses, delicatessen, quiche, tapenade and regional wine or cider.
When and where to meet
9.45am , at town hall "Mairie" in Biot
