Study Watercolor in Italy with Carol Cooper this Summer
Ciao, amici! Join Carol Cooper, NWACC Art Instructor, at La Romita School of Art in Italy this summer for a 2-week watercolor workshop.
La Romita is a 300 year-old monastery that has become an art school. The experience is fantastico! Please visit the website (http://www.laromita.org/) to get an idea of the beautiful setting and to read about the monastery’s history and much more detailed information (FAQs) about Cooper’s workshop. The students are driven to a different hill town every day to paint and return each afternoon or evening to the peaceful monastery. The chapel is the studio space. The food at La Romita is worth the trip alone!
Participants wishing to obtain college credit can seek a course substitution through the Art Coordinator of the NWACC Art Department upon their return. The workshop can be substituted for Intro to Watercolor or Advanced Watercolor.
