One day of Art in Cinque Terre

Amazing en plein air lessons on the beautiful coast of the Five Lands

Drawing and painting course in Le Cinque Terre

Throughout the year students are given the opportunity to take part to some special art sessions in front of the sea on the beautiful coast of Le Cinque Terre.

Both Art novices and more expert artists can take advantage of this en plein air lesson, during which different techniques (such as pencils, charcoals, water colour, oil) can be used according to each student’s specifical needs and requests.

These sessions are open to all students who wish to enjoy an outdoor lesson in front of the beauty of  one of the most famous seascapes of the world, while admiring the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea.

Cinque Terre

“The Five Lands” comprise five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Over the centuries, locals have carefully built terraces on the nearby hills where they created astonishing vineyards. Part of the Cinque Terre’s charm is the lack of modern buildings, as if time has stood still. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, cars cannot reach them from the outside. Life in the villages is slow, unhurried and natural like in the past.
