Painters' retreat

At Poggio Verde you can enjoy "Painters Retreat", led by the award-winning American teacher and painter Jim Richards. Considered one of the top oil painters and instructors in the US, Jim’s remarkable forte in the Impressionist genre won him the coveted “Best of Show” award for 2015 from the American Impressionist Society.
With its inspiring natural surroundings, its nearby historic monuments, charming byways and majestic views, Poggio Verde will not disappoint. This exclusive workshop will include painting days and touring days too, plus a paint day to practice what has been learned.  You will put down your brush and be escorted to surrounding beauty spots, such as the nearby Northern Italian Lakes, Milan’s artistic and fashion highlights and the hill town of Bergamo with its Roman and Renaissance monuments and Franciacorta wine-tasting.
