Gratified by the success of the 2017 Kelli Folsom Artist-in-Residence Workshop, by popular request, we are so excited to host a 2nd Oil Painting Workshop to be led by both Kelli and Monte

and to be held during the most spectacularly beautiful and magical time of year when the olive harvest is in full swing and the Open Olive Mills’ Festival is underway with the mills abuzz and humming 18 hours a day with feverish activity as they cold press the 2018 olives for extra-virgin olive oil.

It will be an unrushed, friendly gathering of painters and art lovers to allow for a unique experience during a

very special season.
Within an all-inclusive formula, we have planned a few special and fascinating activities (see below) which focus on the very essence of Umbria!
However, you will have plenty of personal time to spend the way YOU prefer: to curl up in a comfy chair with a book; visit/paint the charming hill towns;
