I will be teaching my 8th Watercolor Paint-Away with French Escapade - October 3 to 10, 2015.   This custom tour is open to only 10 participants.  Our short day trips from our home base hotel will enable us to paint and enjoy the flavors of the Chianti area in Tuscany.  We will visit and paint in small Medieval hilltop towns, stroll through local markets, paint vistas and vineyards, olive groves, and enjoy memorable local food and wines.   Price includes pickup and transfers in Florence, Italy, air conditioned van, interpreter/driver/guide, instruction, hotel, most meals and local wines, a guided tour of Florence, and entrance to some museums and attractions.  Not included: air fare, personal expenses and gratuities.  Contact Jackie to reserve your space at  For complete itinerary, go to
