The 2018 Season at Clos de Lande Vallée

13 exceptional artistic workshops, led by highly qualified artists


All are known nationally or internationally and are delighted to pass on a technique and a know-how. They have a vision of what to paint in our region that they will share with you; without a doubt, they will fill you with enthusiasm and will make you dream.

Each of you should benefit, according to your level of expertise, your interests, and your taste: from portraits to landscapes, from pastels to watercolors, from the figural to the abstract.

The groups have a maximum of ten to twelve participants, so that the instruction can be personalized and the artist can adapt to the level of each member. You can sign up now!

We offer a total immersion workshop so as to contribute to deeper exchanges between the participants and the artist.
