Off the Beaten Path in Venice with Renata Lahalle
Is there such a thing in Venice as "off the beaten path"? There sure is! And sometimes it's really nice to take a break and sketch in a spot away from other tourists.
In the deep shade of the enormous Giardini della Biennale park squirrels dart and couples stroll just a short walk from the madding crowds of tourists in San Marco's Piazza. Here, off the beaten path, Renata Lahalle will teach one of her workshops next May 2024.
Of course we will visit the basilica and the Doge's Palace and all the other marvels of architecture and history. But for a few hours on the morning of Day 4 we will gather around our amazing instructor and focus on our sketchbooks in the cool of the morning.
Renata will pull out her Altoids tin of paints and we will be inspired by how light she travels and how easy she makes it all look.
And what will we learn? I hear her voice now cheering us on, "Don't be afraid", "It's only marks on paper", "Try this. Try that". Renata makes even the beginner know that they can do it.
And Renata is remarkably inventive. She's not afraid to turn her sketchbook sideways, add a funky font, and play with the layout and composition of a page.
This is going to be an exciting week of workshops and exploring and making new friends sometimes off the beaten path in iconic Venice. For more info about this exciting vacation workshop taught by super talented and lovely, Renata Lahalle, click HERE.
