We are in the early stages of planning our 2020 Classroom Abroad trip to Paris and château de la Napoule (shown above). We'll fly together from Boston and spend three nights in Paris before heading to the south of France. We'll then spend a week as artists in residence at La Napoule art foundation. One week of studio time guided by Maryanne Grebenstein will include the study calligraphy and manuscript gilding in a hands-on workshop. All skill levels are welcome. La Napoule is situated directly on the Mediterranean and is within an easy train ride to such magnificent places as Monaco, San Tropez, Cannes, Nice, Antibes and others. Mornings will be spent in the guided studio time with afternoons free to continue to work independently or travel around to other nearby sights.
