Student Testimonials:

"I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the week. The people within the workshop, our wonderful teacher, yourself, and the ambient surroundings of the chateau will remain in my memory always. In fact, whenever it is possible for me, I’d like to take the workshop again."
– Kay, USA

"I had such a great time at the Chateau. An experience that I will never forget, and hope to revisit at some time, but I don’t think I will be able to in 2005 as I have put in an application to go to university next year. I included the above paintings in my portfolio. Hope I get in!"
– Vanessa, Australia

"I came home from France with so many inspiring painting ideas and the paintings started in France that I am eager to finish!"
– Joan, UK

"It was a great experience and I will never forget the week we shared together. Painters are interesting people and a pleasure to be with! I hope to see you again some day."
