It is the palette of colors, the softness, the golden filtered light that the sun gifts to those that stay here. The beauty is one of those treasured moments you have to experience for yourself. Join Junelle Jacobsen in Orvieto and create your own art journal, inspired by this amazing hilltop town. Learn to sketch or refine your technique, Junelle can guide you no matter what your level of experience. You’ll also be energized by Junelle’s photography tips, and hints for art journaling and creative collecting. Everything you learn will be compiled into your creations during the week, leaving you with a priceless keepsake of your time in Orvieto. In addition to your creative time, enjoy a cooking class, wine tasting and vineyard tour, and other cultural experiences immersing you in the life of Orvieto as if you’ve always been there. Come and join Junelle for this incredible week.
In Junelle’s own words, “I am in love. Completely smitten. Traveling through Italy in 2016, Orvieto held my heart and didn’t let it go.”
For us, it is a dream come true to find our pilgrim feet in this artist sanctuary. We are going to be met by divine moments as we share this space - a sweet convent in Orvieto - with our small circle of friends, all while working and playing in our Italian studio. Think of a beautiful fairytale, some of your best artist friends, at a favorite Italian café, with paints and wine in hand! Yes and amen.
Junelle brings together the best of her creative studies mixed with some favorite collections to inspire your sketching, photography, watercolor, and words. We will let Orvieto lead our artistic hearts -- all of our art will be collected and created in her town squares, cafés, and sanctuaries. Our art journals will come alive in our week together, you will be amazed and the art you create!
Projects include: creative inspirations/techniques each morning, a pilgrimage art journal - Italian style, note cards for the road, small watercolors, pencil sketching/etching, photography hints and tips for art journaling/creative collecting. Sketching techniques for all of our adventures!
For some it will be a new beginning of art...and for some a scrumptious new chapter to their own creative body of work. With wanderlust adventurer we will embrace this quaint place and make art from our tender hearts. All are welcome here. Nothing is too complicated for a beginner or too simple for a life-long artist.
Spending time alongside a sisterhood of wild-hearted artists cannot be missed. This is a trip back in time that will encourage your spirit, embolden your inner artist, and give you layers of inspiration for years to come. We really do hope you will join us!
