Botanical Painting in Transylvania – Course of botanical illustration in watercolor – wild flowers
Weekend courses in Transylvania are an invitation to explore Transylvania in a creative and relaxing way.
On April 21st and 22nd, I have the pleasure to invite you to a fairy – tale weekend at Richis, Sibiu County, to enjoy spring, wild flowers and a creative botanical painting session.
The course is suitable for beginners, intermediate as well as advanced in watercolor techniques.
Because we are so fortunate to have the wild flora of Transylvania, we follow the footsteps of botanists and botanist artists from all over the world and explore, through painting, our favorite flowers that we will find around us.
The package includes Saturday night’s accommodation, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday, the course and all the necessary materials. You can bring an attendant (painting course not included) extra cost of 400 Ron.
Arrival can be also done on the Friday evening, April 20st, 2018. For all of these options, the packet will be recalculated according to personal preferences.
The capacity of the B&B is for 9 people, which can be accommodated in single, double or twin rooms.
Richis 119 Guest House was inaugurated in 2017 and offers an elegant and comfortable setting for a relaxing weekend.
The course will be hosted in the guesthouse’s library, and the traditional meals will be served in the simple but very elegant dining room. All workshop materials are included.
