Where better to immerse yourself in the world of Italian art than in Florence, the capital of the Renaissance? Add a three-day art experience to your luxury villa rental near Florence and learn to paint your romantic Tuscan surroundings with award-winning artist and instructor, Tanvi Pathare. 

Tanvi will be on hand to guide you along this immersive art journey as you learn to paint en plein air (“outdoors”). Spend your mornings putting paint to canvas and relishing the scenery before breaking for a leisurely lunch al fresco. The experience will culminate on the third and final day with a trip into nearby Florence to witness first-hand the celebrated artworks that have inspired you.

By the end of the workshop, you will not only have mastered the art of landscape painting, but you will also have produced a unique artwork and souvenir of your time in Florence.

Tour Florence with an art expert 

On the third day of your art experience, Tanvi will guide you on an exclusive art tour through the heart of Florence. You will have your pick of renowned museums, galleries and landmarks, including the Palazzo Pitti and Musei degli Uffizi. Combine a trip to the Renaissance capital with fascinating insights from an art expert and walk together among the paintings of Botticelli, Michelangelo and Raphael.

Schedule details

The two days of painting at your luxury villa will begin at 10am. Tanvi will introduce you to landscape painting before providing you with your easel, paints and canvases. You will paint together until 1pm before breaking for a leisurely lunch al fresco. Return to your easels at 2:30pm and enjoy an afternoon of painting until 5:30pm, just in time for a poolside aperitivo. 

On the third and final day, you will head into the heart of Florence and will be given a private tour of one of the city’s museums. Spend the morning exploring before breaking for lunch. In the afternoon you can either continue your museum tour (recommended if it is the immense Uffizi Gallery) or walk through the historic centre to another of the city’s landmarks.
