The West Mill Art Workshop: “French Countryside Painting”
The itinerary includes visits to the local markets, the famous Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard, the charming medieval village of Uzes, and visits to several historic cities such as Arles or Nimes as well as painting on location. Perhaps we will have a chance to sketch a shepherd with his goats or some of the swimmers in one of the river pools. We will enjoy the local scenery, foods, and wine.The art workshop will stay at The West Mill. This 18th century water mill with a private swimming pool and hot tub is set in a peaceful area with over 11 acres of private land, bordering the Gardon River, at the foot of the Cevennes Mountains. The West Mill is located 2 km from St. Jean du Gard, a traditional French village with weekly markets on Tuesdays. This region is the former home of many famous artists including Cezanne and Van Gogh. The West Mill has been owned and operated for over 7 years by Falls Church, Virginia resident Kirsten Apple. She will personally plan your trip so you can explore the back-roads tourists may miss. The local hosts will be Victor and Johanne, a retired couple from England who now live near the West Mill. They will prepare your breakfast and lunch daily as well as provide guide information on the region.
