Cappaert to Lead Painting Excursion in France

Egg Harbor artist Ginnie Cappaert will host a painting retreat in the southwest of France Oct. 19-29, 2020. She has traveled extensively on painting excursions; this is the first group she will lead to France.

During the trip, Cappaert will work in and demonstrate oil and cold wax, lead group exercises and discussions, and offer individual attention to guide students of all levels to discover their own intuitive painting style. She will focus on the use of color, form, line and layering to create color fields inspired by the French countryside. 

During this 10-day painting experience, all students will work at their own level and have time for contemplation and journaling. The group will explore local villages and tour picturesque medieval towns, castles, markets and more. The retreat center is a former 17th-century convent that now hosts art workshops.
