Join The 92nd Street Y and Onward Travel for a dreamy week sketching in the sparkling South of France!
Let’s head to Provence and the Riviera to visit the ateliers, villas, gardens and stomping grounds of some of the world’s most beloved artists.
Our tour begins in Provence, where we’ll stay at a luxe-rustic lodge in Aix-en-Provence, the hometown of the master himself, Paul Cézanne. During our days in Provence we’ll pay special attention to the dramatic landscape and the charming towns nestled therein, both of which served as muse to generations of creators before us.
Of course, the artists chose well when it came to a place to get away, and when we leave Provence for the Cote d’Azur city of Nice our time will only be further enhanced by our splendid surroundings. Many of the great European painters of the last centuries were drawn here to the brilliant light and gleaming blue sea. We’ll follow in their footsteps as we explore the Riviera.
Traveling with you will be 92NY Art Center educator Melanie Baker, a working visual artist based in Brooklyn, who will lead the group in daily sketching, lending her expertise and insight each step of the way, and Allison Valchuis, artist, traveler, and director of the 92NY Art Center.
