What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in learning how to paint in oils or acrylics and for improvers wanting to build on their artistic ability. Located in the beautiful region of Charente Maritime, France the teaching is by an award winning artist.
I started the group to share this wonderful area of France where I live with others. This region has inspired me and other artists with it's dramatic rocky coastlines, stunning beaches, ancient and historic towns and beautiful countryside.
