Meet Jill for an exclusive experience to paint in the enchanted “floating city” of Venice! This workshop is available to alumni painters of Jill’s Provence workshops.

It has been my longtime dream to host a workshop in Venice, and I am thrilled to invite you to join me.

Springtime in Venice is the ideal time to paint where the ethereal beauty touches our hearts. To be there away from our homes and our duties, we will seek to stretch ourselves to go beyond our limits. To live and breathe painting – at sunrise, at sunset, at midnight – it will become our habit of being.

My routine in Venice has always been:

Wake up and go straight to paint

After the painting session is over, have breakfast in a café.

Go back out to paint before lunch

Relax with an afternoon nap then spend time exploring the city.

Have dinner followed by a sunset painting.

(This is absolutely optional and you are welcome to choose your own Venice routine!)

Accommodation & Airfare are not included in the workshop.

While each participant is responsible for their own accommodation, we are happy to help with your search for a hotel or AirBnB. Jill encourages you to find housing in the Dorsodouro district, located in between the museum “Gallerie dell’Accademia” and the Guggenheim. This is where Jill will be staying (see map below).


The main arrivals day will be Friday, and departures will be the following Saturday. You are of course welcome to arrive earlier and stay later.
During the week, we will provide you with gondola passes for easy travel within the city.

Jill & Serge will be staying near the Hotel Belle Arti in the Dorsodouro district of Venice. For the sake of convenience, you may want to look for lodging around this area.


Let us know if you have any questions or comments about Jill’s workshops, or if you need assistance in planning your trip to Venice. We are happy to answer your questions!
