Artist's Workshop / Retreat in Boutenac France - July 28-Aug 4 / by Barbara Peacock

Draw, paint and shoot with a small group of artists and photographers in the beautiful village of Boutenac - nestled in the Corbieres Wine Country where every turn is postcard picturesque.

This is a low key collaborative workshop. We will teach and learn from each other. Learn to draw, or paint, shoot or write. Teach what you know, learn from the rest. Explore with pure unadultrated freedom.

Each day we will offer meditation and yoga.  We will spend our days journeying together or splitting into small groups. There will be additional cameras available as well as instruction in drawing, painting and photography depending on who would like to learn what.  Everyone will be asked to keep a journal and at the end of the day we will cook, eat, drink and share.

The house is simple and comfortable - there are 3 -4 bedrooms, a full kitchen, 2.5 baths and a terrace with a BBQ. There is DSL, maps and guides to the region.

The house is 1/2 hour to beautiful beaches and to the great cities of Carcassonne and Narbonne as well as excellent vineyards.

The fee of $500 covers your room and ground transportation ( not flight) In addition we will ask that each person put $100 to $150 toward the food for the week. This will give us a kitty to buy fresh and locally.  Breakfast will be put out in the morning and each person will make one dinner with a partner. We can pack picnics for lunch!!!!

Barcelona is 2 1/2 hours away so taking a road trip there is an option.
