Artist Retreat in Terrasson-Lavilledieu, France

Experience French Village Life while painting ‘En Plein-Air’ with Valerie Kent.

“There will be lots of laughter, good food and drink with a little tourism thrown in for context with daily paint sessions in the village and area.” Valerie Kent, Session Instructor

The beautiful area of Dordogne, an undiscovered part of France by North Americans is the perfect place for your art holiday. Come live a week in a beautifully renovated home in a French Village, slow down, enjoy leisurely 2 hour lunches, buy your food at the local butcher, bakery and go to the weekly market all while painting the life around you. Painters of all levels are encouraged to join, including beginners.
