BRIDGET WOODS

NEWSLETTER – SPRING 2018

After last year’s successful ‘Painting with Bridget’ holiday I have been finding other exciting venues in Italy, France, Iceland, Egypt and will be holding another painting week this year over Greek Easter:

*‘PAINTING WITH BRIDGET’ in Kardamyli, Greece, April 7th – 14th 2018

This week is full but please let me know if you are interested in Bridget’s future holidays and teaching in the UK and abroad.

*’Painting with Bridget’ is an untutored holiday. So the cost, including transport to venues, is the same for painters and non-painters, who are very welcome. We love botanists, bird-watchers, writers – partners and friends who may just want to walk a little, read, eat, drink and relax!

Painters can, of course, watch Bridget demonstrating her techniques throughout the week and she will happily offer tuition in the week, on a’fee per hour’ basis: one-to-one tuition, mentoring or, for several with similar questions, sharing the cost of tuition.

In 2019, Bridget will also be teaching in beautiful Tuscany, near San Gimignano :

‘ATMOSPHERE THROUGH LIGHT AND TEXTURE IN THE TUSCAN LANDSCAPE – WATERCOLOUR’ 15th – 22nd June 2019.

Please see : http://www.artravelitaly.it

Meanwhile, from the snow of mid-March, let us welcome the arrival of astronomical spring by celebrating artistic self-expression!

Here are some dates for your diary – I look forward to seeing you at any of these events

with best wishes

Bridget
