In this 7 night workshop, you will stay just steps from the square where Vincent lived with Paul Gauguin. You will paint the same scenes in the exact locations.  Instructor Stewart Burgess White will lead you through original texts and memoirs as you follow Vincent and Gauguin's wild ride, and try to capture their passion on canvas.  Beginners welcome!  This trip is about inspiring passion, feeding creativity, and finding inspiration!
