About The Event
Take a lovely creative walk with art instructor Mona who will show you the basics of sketching and acrylic in the beautiful natural park surrounding Etang Fontmerle.
Etang Fontmerle, where you will discover the beauty of nature from an artist’s perspective, observing and sketching trees, lotus flowers and flocks of migratory birds.
Chapelle Notre Dame de Vie, which is located there, was painted by Winston Churchill and was also where Picasso had his last Workshop. In 1949 Jean Marais and Jean Cocteau were regulars here. Le Manoir de l´Etang, which you can see on the hill, was entirely renovated and is now a sumptuous hotel.
You will take a leisurely stroll around pond Fontmerle, circa 2 km of walking distance. You’ll stop at 2 or 3 lookout points where Mona will give you painting class.
Lunch After the morning’s creations, you will certainly not resist a freshly prepared picnic made using local Provencal products such as cheese, delicatessen, quiche, tapenade and local wine or cider.
