    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.
