You’ve seen the images of the people with elaborate costumes and ornate masks set against the stunning backdrop of Venice. Well, now is your chance to not only be a part of this fabulous spectacle, but to also capture the festival in all of it’s glory. Imagine working on your photography and painting skills in an environment with such visual stimulation and artistic opportunities.
Join Scott as he takes you on a photographic journey among a cast of characters that have stepped out of a long forgotten time as they stroll amid the grandeur of the Venetian canals. Like our spring workshop, you will experience the sights, sounds and passion of Venice as you are immersed in Italian culture.
Niki will conduct the Plein-Air Painting Workshop from different picturesque locations daily, teaching through a combination of demos, discussions, assistance and critiques. Sessions will be broken into different morning and afternoon locations, with plenty of time in between for shopping, sightseeing, or to dine al fresco for a leisurely lunch.
There will be walking tours through the back streets and canals of Venice as we go in search of opulent costumes and dazzling masks in a setting like no other place on earth. There will also be critique sessions throughout the workshop that can provide invaluable information and feedback, as well as giving everyone an opportunity to share ideas and get to know each other. There will also be opportunities each day to see the museums, visit the churches, go shopping and enjoy all of the things that make Venice what it is.
