Struggling to convey the serenity of a sunset or the grandeur of ancient ruins? Ritchie Carter is here to guide you on a transformative journey, marrying the essence of landscapes with your own personal expression.
Join us for an unforgettable two-week workshop, tailored to give you an immersive experience in landscape artistry. You can choose to participate in either the first week, or the second, or indulge in both for a comprehensive exploration. Each week promises a unique theme, ensuring a rich learning experience.
Ritchie, with his vast experience and deep passion for the arts, will be providing daily demonstrations and invaluable one-on-one feedback, ensuring that every participant experiences remarkable growth in their skills.
Week one takes you through an inspiring journey amidst the ancient ruins of Segesta and Selinunte, some of the world's best-preserved Greek temple sites. There will also be thrilling excursions to serene beaches and the enchanting island of Mozia. As we paint the sun's descent over the reflective salt flats, Aperol Spritz in hand, you will find yourself transported into every painter's dream life.
The subsequent week offers an unparalleled experience. Participants will have the privilege of residing in a historic monastery, perched atop a mountain in the medieval city of Erice. Here, surrounded by panoramic views and ancient structures, you'll live a chapter from history while exploring all the wonders Erice and Trapani have in store.
Harness the magic of landscape painting with Ritchie Carter, amidst the mesmerizing backdrop of the Mediterranean, and discover a profound connection with your artistic self.
