Civita is only accessible by foot, and because there are no cars, it makes the town a wonderful medieval-feeling pedestrian-only zone...great for claiming a spot to sketch!
Here are photos from the workshops...5+ days of small groups, long days of sketching, great meals, beautiful scenery, and a day trip to the Villa Lante Italian Renaissance garden. All in all, pretty great.

Thanks so much to everyone for TWO fabulous workshops!! I enjoyed meeting each of you and seeing your beautiful work!!
I am now also planning ahead to next year, however, due to the extreme heat of the past few years, I'm bumping the workshop to some time during the last 2 weeks in May...contacting me now (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested!
