Le Monastere is a premier artists’ destination in Southern France. I am honored to be among the few North American instructors invited to conduct workshops there. A fully modernized medieval monastery, Le Monastere, is a unique small hotel in the heart of Limoux complete with an artist’ studio. Subjects to paint in the area are endless. There are winding old town streets, rivers and bridges, the Med- iterranean shore, the snow capped Pyrenees , pastoral farm lands, Cathar Castles, gorges, foothills and forests, and vineyards and flowers everywhere. We will be living in centuries of history with not only, some- thing unique to paint, but something to learn at every turn. Cost for Le Monastere is $3350 This cost includes:—airport/hotel transfers—private van transportation to all painting sites, included sightseeing sites, included wine tastings, and any local festivals that may be on during our stay.—-all breakfasts and 12 sumptuous dinners with wine either in Le Monastere’s courtyard or at a selection of specialty restaurants. You will eat like royalty.— and my instruction fee.

* Not included is air fare, lunches which we purchase at the local market and “brown bag” to painting sites, 2 dinners, and entrance to Carcasonne which is an optional tour. To secure a spot, a $100 deposit is required. This will be re- funded when final payment is made in Mar 2019. Send deposit, made out to Donna Bonin to 84 Cliff Way, RR5 Stirling, ON, K0K 3E0
