Plein Air Painting Workshop in Tuscany, Italy: June 2020

Barry John Raybould, the author of VAA, will be running a five-day plein air painting workshop from June 15 to 19, 2020. The plein air painting workshop will be held in his studio in Licciana Nardi, near Aulla, in northern Tuscany, just one hour drive north of Pisa.


Each day you will go out doing lots of studies and plein air painting, and at the end of the day, meet to discuss the day’s work and do individual critiques. The goal will be to identify where you need the most help, and if necessary select assignments from the Virtual Art Academy curriculum that will help take your work to the next level.

At the end of the plein air painting workshop he will give each of you an individual plan for what you need to work on for the following six months.
