How do I get there?

We will work out a simple solution for you to get to and from the Rome airport. We will facilitate all attendees arrival and departure from the Villa to the Fiumicino Airport, Rome. 

I’m traveling alone, is anyone else?

This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to meet and make new friends. Some attendees will be traveling solo while others will have companions. We will introduce the workshop attendees to each other previous to travel.

What is your teaching style?

The painting workshop will be individually customized so that each attendee gains the full benefit while completely enjoying the experience. Jill’s demos and talks will review basics, often overlooked aspects and her own insights into what goes into a successful painting.

Is the Studio at the Villa?

Yes, the studio is only a short walk across the courtyard from the main house. The grounds and views are extensive. There are some photos below to give you an idea of where you will spend 7 spectacular days.
