Grab your paints and get ready to immerse yourself in this week-long painting adventurein Italy with WAC and painter Bernard (Bernie) Dellario. The setting for this art adventure is the beautiful Castello di Petroia, a 10th century castle in the Umbrian countryside, near the historic medieval city of Gubbio. Come paint, explore and get inspired!
Each day will include instructor demonstrations, group critiques and lots of personal attention. Classes will cover learning how to see and choose subject matter, how to see color, interpreting the special quality of light found in this exquisite location, composition, design, atmospheric perspective and most importantly how to have fun doing it!
Paint in any medium. Bernie will paint and demo mainly in gouache along with some oils. For those interested in working in gouache, you will learn how to use this versatile medium as a means for creating field sketches or to produce fully realized paintings. Gouache is the perfect transitional medium for the oil painter and great for traveling since it requires minimal supplies and is easily stowed in a small backpack.
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.
