Road Scholar
Program #21213RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
We all have shapes and images that recur throughout our lives–spheres, mandalas, egg shapes. One woman told me that she had a recurring memory of the Sagamore Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal at sunset and did a series of sketches, a watercolor and an acrylic painting. Another remembered a pool of koi she had seen on a trip to Hawaii. She used strips of paper from magazines, as well as oil pastels to capture her image. This workshop will explore any images we have longed to capture using oil, acrylic or watercolor paints, oil pastels or collage. We will work on paper, canvas board or illustration board. This is an opportunity to fulfill perhaps lifelong wishes, plus the chance to make art that is deeply personal.


Highlights

• In the heart of the picturesque Berkshire foothills, learn hands-on techniques from artisans who share their love and enthusiasm for their crafts.

• Studio explorations at the beginning and end of the week offer an exciting look at the progress of student artists who are participating in other workshops.
