Dates: May 2-9, 2023
Location: Castello di Petroia, Gubbio, Italy
Mediums: Oil and Gouache
Instructor: Bernard Dellario
Sweeping views with majestic skies await the artist’s interpretation of Umbria. Painting opportunities abound at every turn.
Students will learn to capture the essence of the landscape in a plein air, alla prima fashion. Alla prima, Italian for “all at once,” is a method that utilizes the manipulation of wet into wet painting. The results are fresh and honest.
Participants can expect one on one personal instruction, daily challenges and critique sessions. Several instructor demos will be provided in oil and gouache.
The venue for this week-long art immersion is the 10th Century Castello di Petroia, an authentic medieval fortress perched on a hilltop between the towns of Perugia and Gubbio, with inspiring views of the surrounding landscape. The castle, birthplace of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino (b.1422), is surrounded by a 600-acre traditional Umbrian farm with beautiful olive groves, hiking and horse-riding trails, meadows, woods and abundant wildlife.
