    Expressing Your Tuscan Story:
    A 10-Day Exploration in Encaustic and Photography
    with Nancy Crawford and Oliviero Olivieri
    (10 day program)
    Tuscany, Italy

    Creative Excursions

    What to Expect in your Workshops with Creative Excursions

    A great opportunity for a deep dive into encaustic and photography. This workshop in Tuscany is ideal for those people who already have experience working with the encaustic medium and who are looking to take their image making to the next level – learning to create a series of works exploring one central idea or concept.  In addition to working with encaustic paint and assorted materials used in combination with that medium we will be spending time working through a wide range of sketchbook activities that will deepen and expand your understanding of how to develop imagery, decision making around the elements of design, working with a host of image development strategies, brainstorming ideas for conceptual development and more.

    The photography that we will be doing while on the monastery grounds and out on location will be another opportunity to explore and put into practice many of the principles that we will be exploring in our lessons. Regardless of whether you are shooting with an iphone or a medium format camera, or you are painting with wax or watercolor – finding your story and composing personal and meaning imagery will be the focus of our work together.

    Accommodation and Meals

    As part of this excursion you will be removed from the frenetic pace of today’s world to experience a more tranquil environment.  Sleeping in a simple, rustic former monk’s cell, dining in an ancient hall, and wandering the many paths and roads of the valley will help to create a sense of harmony with the natural surroundings. The former monastery features new modern bathroom facilities that are private but shared by two to three rooms.

    Your evening meals will be prepared by local cooks using delicious, regional recipes featuring olive oil from trees on the property, vino nobile from neighbouring Montepulciano, pecorino cheeses from the local sheep, and fresh, regional vegetables and fruit. Our goal is to create an environment that fosters inner contentment, reflection and focus.

    All breakfast and evening meals will be traditional Tuscan menus prepared at the monastery while lunches will be a combination of picnics on location, and meals at local trattoria and the monastery. Vegetarian fare is also available if requested at the time that you register.

    Easter Week in Spain!

    There are many different ways to discover Spain: enjoying its coast and beaches, following a route around its various monuments, exploring the countryside, playing sports like golf... However, if you've never visited Spain during Easter week, then you simply have to come. And even if you already know this famous fiesta, it's well worth making another trip, as each region of Spain has its own way of celebrating the event.

    In Spain, Easter week is celebrated with a great deal of emotion. People take an active role in its events and traditions. All day and night the streets are filled with the beat of the drums, masses of colourful flowers, and the consummate art of religious sculpture, all combining to produce a highly moving atmosphere.

    World-famous fiestas

    Easter week is celebrated in every city, town and village in Spain. Nevertheless, there are some fiestas that are especially well known for their uniqueness and beauty, and have received the International Tourist Interest designation.

    During Easter week in Seville you'll see how the "cofradías" (religious brotherhoods) manage to withstand the colossal weight of elaborately decorated statues of the Virgin Mary as they parade through the narrow streets of the old town. Easter week in Malaga includes the ritual privilege of the freeing of a prisoner, and one of the most moving moments of all is when the figure of Jesus Christ blesses the convict. During the Easter week celebrations in Cuenca you can also enjoy the concerts in the Religious Music Week festival, which take place in historic buildings such as the cathedral.

    Workshops: Past and Present

    To contact us: Ellen Email   Belen Email

    In October, 2014, we did our first encaustic workshop and tour in Malaga, Spain. 

    Artists from all over the world participated in this event. In addition, we were able to interact with the artists of the Malaga Arts Association, Aplama, which generously allowed us to use their space for the workshop. The local TV station showed up the first day, as did the Mayor, and we were on the European News. A great time was had by all.
    In February 2016, we did it again!! This time in Belen's beautiful studio, and with more time to paint, and more places to see.

    Read about our workshops in the IEA Zine destination workshops

    Malaga has been chosen as one of the top ten cities for 2015 in the world by Rough Guides.... it gives an overview of the city… see the review.  It is now the New Spanish Art Hub!

     Fall is the best time to travel to Europe. No more tourist crowds, good weather and this year as a bonus we have a favorable exchange rate (20% less than last time we did our European workshop!). Airline prices traditionally go down in the fall but new airline competition has brought down prices even more: check out Norwegian Air Shuttle, Airberlin, Wow Air and other international discount carriers (Norwegian has announced rates to Europe as low as $69!). These prices are making it easier than ever hopping between destinations across Spain and Europe -- same currency, short travel distances and unbeatable prices!"
