Tina Garrett and Kitty Harvill join together to offer students a dual workshop for portraiture and nature lovers alike! Our workshop takes place in the Atlantic coastal rainforest in the state of Paraná (in southern Brazil), more specifically the town of Morretes, about 1 1/2 hours from Curitiba (the capital of the state and where you'll fly in) at the Pousada Hakuna Matata Hotel in Historic Morretes. We'll enjoy making art together while enjoying the food, culture and people of Brazil. Kitty and her husband Christoph will be our unofficial guides, as they live in Curitiba, PR, Brazil for most of the year and Christoph is a former international banker turned Naturalist and is a pioneer of eco-tourism and birding in Brazil. There is no better way to truly get to know a culture than through the local people including plein air painting in EKÔA Park. We will enjoy our experience of Brazil through the familiarity of friends who live in and love Brazil! See below for details, deadlines and costs. Vamos lá!! Lets Go!!
ARC Associate Living Master Tina Garrett will teach her 3 approaches to portraiture from life in the studio at the hotel and wildlife artist, Signature Artist for Conservation member, plein air painter and nature advocate Kitty Harvill will teach two days of plein air painting at EKÔA Park.
