Fall Contemplative Art Workshop in Eymet, France
October 18-23, 2018
This fall, artist and teacher Heather Midori Yamada and chef Daniel Lamoureux will take a small group of students to beautiful southwestern France for an extraordinary contemplative art experience.
Beginning with short guided meditations the group will explore the natural-old world sites of the town of Eymet, walking, sketching and photographing. In pencil and watercolor, students will capture personal responses to these townscapes. In the studio at 4 rue de Loup they will continue to expand their vision to include spontaneous brushwork on Japanese washis and other paper supports. The six-day retreat will include 5 days of workshops in Eymet, as well as a full day escorted excursion to significant medieval sites in the neighbouring Périgord Noir Region.
More than a tourist experience, this workshop allows you to bring your own creative responses to the experience of place.
Dates: October 18-23, 2018
Registration: To register send a message to Heather
Restrictions: NOTE that there are no elevators in workshop and excursion buildings, and lots of walking will be done both in Eymet and on the excursion
