Studio Colombia 2013: Understanding Perspective held last February was a great success! We spent 10 memorable days in Pradomar, Cartagena and Santa Marta with a great group of artists and art lovers from Ottawa and Montreal. We are planning Studio Colombia again for February 2014.
Here are some comments from our participants:
Studio Colombia is so much more than a perspective painting workshop … although I’ll never look at a horizon line in quite the same way again! As a first-time visitor to Colombia, I was blown away by the colour, culture and beauty of the country and its people, and I can’t think of better guides than Mónica and Yves. They were the consummate hosts, always solicitous of their little group and accommodating of our individual needs. As at any of their workshops, we laughed and we learned, we sampled the local spirits and grappled with the meaning of life (usually in that order), and we feasted on the local delicacies. In Colombia, though, we were also privileged to meet Mónica’s family, and experienced first-hand Colombian charm, grace and hospitality. Thank you, Yves and Mónica, for a wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone! Halina Gasewicz
Studio Colombia was a very fulfilling experience. Not only did I came back with a great appreciation for the country and its culture but I also found the other participants of Colombia Studio to be quite interesting. There was never a dull moment during Studio Colombia. I would recommend it to whoever is thinking of joining the next studio in this fascinating country. Doris Lamontagne
Through it’s excursions, Studio Colombia is far more than art and touring. This is a trip that challenges one to stretch, to connect with one’s own Being, whether artist or not, yet as well, it offers skill learning on an applied and practical level in a very collegial way. Gerry Giuliani
