Make Art in Le Marche
22nd – 29th October 2023 – more than 4 places available
Christopher’s course will focus on sketching and painting from direct observation. Using pencil, pen, watercolours and/or acrylics you will be guided to achieve authentic interpretations of local views, buildings and people on location. By demonstrating how to select your subject, then how to compose and colour your painting, Christopher will inspire confidence using both traditional and contemporary techniques.
Christopher Cole is a highly successful artist with over 40 years of professional experience. His Classical training included a thorough grounding in the techniques of the Flemish & Italian artists of the Renaissance. He exhibits regularly and has an international following with paintings in collections in England, throughout Europe as well as in Australia, the USA, South Africa & Japan.
Christopher works in acrylic, oil, pastel, ink & watercolour and specialises in drawing and painting from direct observation, bringing both traditional techniques and contemporary style to his acutely analysed interpretations.

*On the day of arrival we organise pick up times based on the groups arrival times either into Ancona airport or at the local train or coach stops.
We will do our very best to make sure nobody has to wait for too long but please be aware we will be picking up other members of the group whose arrival times may not necessary coincide perfectly with your own and we ask for your patience.
If you are arriving at a time that really doesn’t tie in with the group or arriving a day or so earlier we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up. The cost of a taxi is in the region of €150. If there is anybody else arriving doing the same we will arrange it so that you can share the transport costs.
Similarly for departure, for retreats the rooms are to be vacated by 10:00 on the morning of departure. Departure time will be set based on the majority of the group. Again we will do our very best to accommodate everyone.
