Civita di Bagnoregio Piazza

Civita di Bagnoregio is warm, sunny, breezy, and spectacularly beautiful.  You walk through Bagnoregio, over and up the long bridge to Civita, walk through the gate, and you are thrown back several centuries into a world of beautiful ochre colored stone, small winding streets with huge pots of flowers, and buildings that are scaled to the pedestrian and burro.

The NIAUSI apartments are equally beautiful!  Beautiful designed, amazing views out to the landscape, and so elegant.  It is really wonderful to be here.

The workshop is very casual this year...the one particpant (we advertised a little late for people to get reasonable airfares, but next year, I'm sure we'll have a full class) is doing wonderful sketches.  We spend the days scoping out beautiful places to draw and paint together, trying to figure out how to capture the colors of the stone--which is not easy!
