Summer Painting Courses
Diana's courses in 2010 are being held in an eighteenth century Tuscan farm house only 2 Kms from San Gimignano.
It extends over 2 hills which overlook San Gimignano's ancient medieval centre providing a truly magnificent panoramic view of the area.
Poggiacolle farmhouse is in the heart of Tuscany, Volterra is 20 Kms away, Siena is 35 Kms away, Florence is 55 Kms away, Pisa is 80 Kms away and Lucca is 90 Kms away.

Whatever your painting ability, Poggiacolle's wonderful setting will inspire your imagination and the tranquility and beauty of its surroundings will enhance your creativity.
Painting sessions will be available each morning, while the light is kinder and the temperature more pleasant. Tuition is relaxed, informal, and fun, individually tailored to encourage you towards reaching your own painting objectives.
Five-Day-Courses are offered between June and September. Diana is now resident in San Gimignano and this makes it possible to offer Private Courses at other times of the year by special arrangement. Contact her for more information. Morning sessions will be held in studio facilities within the Poggiacolle complex, with discussions about technique as well as practical demonstrations. The cost of the 5 day course is €250 (this is approximately US$, £, C$, ¥ Currency data courtesy coinmill.com)
You will be free to choose where you paint in the afternoon sessions, with Diana providing help and guidance.
There will be an evening gathering over a glass of Poggiacolle's excellent wine, and a celebratory evening at the conclusion of each course.
Beginners will be given basic instruction in drawing, and painting in the medium of their choice. Easels will be provided, but students need to provide their own equipment.
Numbers are limited to six students on each five-day course. Non-painting partners will be made very welcome.
