Eight full days of instruction with Aline Ordman, Master Pastelist and member of the American Impressionist Society (for her oil paintings)

Enjoy a ten-day painting holiday on the island of Korcula, Croatia, in the Adriatic Sea.  Croatia combines the old time beauty of small stone-housed villages and the ocean.  Oils and pastels will be taught with daily demos and lots of individual attention.

Aline teaches workshops throughout the country and Europe.  She received her BFA at Cornell University and continued her training at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco.  She has received numerous national awards and is published often in the Artist Magazine and the Pastel Journal.  Her artistic statement:  “My goal as an artist is to find those times and places where beauty is not only evident, but startling and suddenly present”.
We will be led by tour operator Lynda Milina, a Canadian whose father is a native of Korcula.  With Lynda, you will get the best Croatian adventure possible with a small, intimate group.  Eat, taste, and smell clean, fresh salt air and enjoy Grk wines and cuisine.  Paint majestic scenes of courtyards, quaint villages, old stone buildings, olive trees, and fishing boats.  Lynda always adds a few extras to her tours!
