Well, here we are, into the home stretch of our long busy days of Summer! At Art-On-Location we have taught classes in Tuscany on the annual Tuscan Getaway, and in schools and on-location at the Oakville Harbour, closer to home here in Canada. A wealth of knowledge, memories, artistic habits and friendships have been formed during the creative weeks of summer.
With Labour Day weekend and Back-to-School looming, some of us are still enjoying plein air painting classes at the Harbour and the Erchless Estate in Oakville this last week of August (while Mums are frantically checking to see what clothing still fits and who in the family needs a geometry set or and new backpack!). Watercolours, acrylics and pastels are on our minds!

NO Crafts! Just Fine Art.
Visiting the medieval village of Anghiari, Tuscany with Art-On-Location: This beautiful sunrise is just one of the reasons I keep bringing groups back every year since 2002!
On Sunday morning the sun rose in line with the medieval Roman road called Corso Mattiotti.
Enthusiastic amateur and professional photographers (and a ballerina) came out at 5.30am to welcome the Dawn! Why don’t you plan to join us next July for painting and photography ops like this one? A Family Getaway to enjoy a stay in a 17th century country farmhouse amid cypress and chestnut trees, vineyards and sunflowers, plus sightings of wild boar and deer. You will enjoy day trips into the Chianti region, the cities of Assisi, Florence, Sienna and Arezzo, and the medieval villages of Citerna, Monterchi and Caprese Michelangelo to see the birthhouse of Michelangelo. Experience for yourself the culture of Tuscany in local market places, museums, galleries and churches.
There are art, cooking, photography and horse riding lessons for children and the country house has swimming pool — a must on hot days after sightseeing trips.
Art-On-Location in Tuscany: 2 weeks in July 2019.
