Do you dream of living the artist life of painting the vineyards of Europe but can't afford the trip?
Join moi! (Leslie Redhead) and Sam Boehner for Art in the Vineyards in Naramata, British Columbia (Canada).
We will be returning to teach watercolor painting in the vineyards of British Columbia's famous wine country this September 14-17, 2015. It is like painting in Europe without the expense. The cost ranges from $330 CAD for the workshop only to $990 CAD for a single occupancy stay, full breakfast every morning, and the workshop.
(By the way, that is Canadian dollars so if you are American, it is an even better deal.)
This holiday is filled with many painting opportunities with incredible views, excellent wine, and amazing food. This is the third year that we have organized this wonderful painting excursion to the vineyards of the Okanagan.

We will be staying at Sandy Beach Lodge and Resort which is located along the shores of Okanagan Lake. We then spend our mornings painting outdoors in one of the many vineyards located along the Naramata Bench. I will be demonstrating different techniques and tips for painting outdoors and guiding you in your own creations. After a morning of painting, we will be treated to a wine tasting from the local winery. Following lunch, Sam teaches how to compose and paint a still life with all things wine- from glasses to bottles to grapes.
Our painting day ends with a dip in the lake, a quick nap, or a walk about in the village of Naramata followed by dinner at a local winery or restaurant. It is so much fun, you may want to make it a yearly event just like we and many of our students have done.
