Timothée Faberger and I are now accepting bookings for a fabulous sketching trip to southwest France where we will explore, sketch, photograph, shop, eat, drink and be merry!  The trip, scheduled from September 27 – October 7, 2019 will be absolutely wonderful, as those who have traveled with Timothée already know.  His itineraries are unmatched in their destinations, accommodations and surprises along the way. And this trip offers several days with options where you may choose to sketch, shop, relax or sightsee, depending on your inclinations that day.  (Side note: we welcome non-artists and those who just love to explore!)
Don’t wait–click the blue button, below, for itinerary and registration

Why book this early in the year?
1) Guarantee your space (lots of interest in the trip this year)
2) Limited availability–we keep the group small
3) Time to plan, prepare and let the excitement build!

Please share this opportunity with anyone who might be interested. We know this will be another precious memory, this time southwest France.  Can’t wait!!

Best wishes!
