2 Summer Opportunities, Oakville Art Camps or Tuscany Tour ?

A Few Spots Left

IMG_6341

APRIL! REALLY? ALREADY?

We are all thinking about Spring and its unpredictability, but I am thinking of Summer and 2 things for sure (no, not death and taxes!):

We are excited about all our preparations for our:

1. SUMMER FINE ART CAMP at the OAKVILLE HARBOUR and our annual trip to

2. TUSCANY FAMILY TOUR, which includes VENICE this year.IMG_9512

“What  a job you have!” I often hear. Yes, I do. I plan all the things I love to share with others, with all the people I love, in places I love! I am blessed.

However, there is a lot of planning and personal care that go into all of these events and tours. Because we have a passion for ART, CHILDREN & TRAVEL, we spend the entire year planning and putting every consideration into making these two events as beautiful and memorable as possible, and because I am committed to small groups, we can customise and incorporate some of our guests own requests. For example, we can have a chef come to our country house and prepare a meal for us while we are out sightseeing, or perhaps you enjoy like a day at the villa and pool by yourself and watch the chef prepare a 5 course gastronimic meal?

My Views and Vistas from Tuscany

ONLY 10 WEEKS LEFT until our 2019 Tuscany & Venice Getaway, June 28 – July 10, 2019. This may be your last chance to register, share this with a friend — we have only 3 more spots left in our medieval country house, Le Cerchiaie near the Medival village of Anghiari:

Come and enjoy the serene countryside around our infinity edge pool, as you lie in a hammock, encased by the Appenine mountains and fields of smiling sunflowers.z32lWXSDSPy8f36IPaCGnA_thumb_6bf.jpegWatch the sun set from the aptio as a chef prepares and serves your moonlit 5 course dinner.
Enjoy a pizza from an ancient pizza oven at the Bar Baldaccio Ristorante in the Piazza Garibaldi.  Day trips to Assisi, Florence, Arezzo and the beach of Rimini on the Adriatic Coast, are taken from our medieval base of the village of Anghiari.

BUT MY FAVOURITE day trips are to the small, off the beaten track, medieval villages were you can wander and wonder at the views, enjoy local cooking and views and vistas. I like to sit in the stillness, meditate, journal, paint, read… feel sun on my body and the mountain breeze in my hair.
We depart Toronto on June 28 and arrive in time for the celebration of the Battle of Anghiari, fought in 1440 on June 29 and painted by city-village-italy-town.jpgLeonardo Da imageVinci. Pomp and ceremony, medieval costumes, flag showers and horsemanship. Not to be
missed — that is why we panned the trip around this event.
Children and adults alike can take Cooking Classes, Painting and Drawing Workshops or a Composition for Photographers and Artists Workshop, learning how to take better, artistic  photographs and see light on subject matter like they have never have seen before.

Our second week will be spent in the friendly city of Florence and then Venice, exploring the canals and ancient merchant centre.ponte vecchio
Museums, cooking and painting classes are optional.
We have separate itineraries for children.
Its not too late, as I said, we have one beautiful, authentic, rustic room left for a relaxing trip of a lifetime! Join me? Contact me directly and I will send you an itinerary: mytour@artonlocation.ca

IRELAND THROUGH THE EYES OF AN ARTIST

IRELAND THROUGH THE EYES OF AN ARTIST, MAY 2017
Travel with artist, Maureen Fautley and Dawn-Angela on a Creative Get-Away, where you not only have a serene holiday, and a cultural experience and optional painting course. A holiday in Dublin, Drogheda and Kinsale, where you bring home meaningful paintings, photographs or creative writing, a vacation that often constitutes what Dawn-Angela calls, “a safe passage” from one chapter of your life to another.
