Discover the magic of painting in Provence during a week-long oil painting workshop. 

You will be guided by Jill, who has been living and painting in the landscapes of Provence for over 40 years. This is a truly immersive art experience in which you will live like a local and paint from some of the best spots Provence has to offer.

Designed for both confirmed painters and beginners, Jill’s workshops focus primarily on color, mixing a harmonious palette, oil painting techniques, and the creative process.

Participants embark on a journey to explore Provence in a unique way, drawing and painting from nature – en plein air – at the sea, in the hill towns, at the Aix market, and at the sites of the Provençal masters.

In the footsteps of

masters of impressionism —

This workshop also includes a cultural dimension concentrating on Cézanne and Van Gogh. During the week, participants will visit and paint on the very sites where the impressionist masters painted.

Small groups

Personalized instruction —

Workshops are limited to a number of eight participants, which provides individual attention in an intimate group setting. During the week, Jill takes time to coach each participant individually, providing them with valuable guidance and feedback.

This workshop is a personal and spiritual experience, like climbing a mountain within yourself. It’s a moment to step back, slow down, observe and experience the beauty and wonder in and around you. Students are encouraged to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel nature as a catalyst for their artistic expression.

Whatever the level

Everyone is welcome —

“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” – Vincent Van Gogh

If these words speak to you and wake up a desire to paint, then join Jill for a workshop.

Open to beginners, experienced painters and non-painting participants alike.

Experiencing nature

Painting with the Seasons —

 “Art exists… to make us taste the eternal.” – Paul Cézanne

Standing in fields of wheat, sunflowers or lavender of Provençe, in the fishing village of Cassis or in the flower markets of Aix, participants celebrate nature with color.
