La Bonne Etoile Artists Retreat was specifically developed to assist artists and writers who would benefit from an experience in another culture, along with a time of seclusion and solitude. But through the years it has developed into more....a community of friends. La Bonne Etoile Blog has been designed to expand the richness of that community by continuing the quest to create and recreate together.
La Bonne Etoile workshops are ALL-INCLUSIVE, starting and ending with hospitality shuttles to and from any Paris airport. Our workshop instructors are well known for quality, patient instruction for all levels of students. contact for full information. Be sure to visit the individual websites of the artists, you will find links to La Bonne Etoile workshop information there as well.

What an exciting year this year!!  We kick off with  JAMES RICHARDS as he returns with a split workshop beginning with a week painting en plein air in Provence followed by a week at La Bonne Etoile to turn these pieces into larger studio paintings, KIPPY HAMMOND  will be conducting a customized workshop “Setting Your Artistic GPS” in July and we are welcoming NANCY TANKERSLEY for the first time this year on our staff in August “Painting with Confidence”.  We are so fortunate to have these instructors offer their time and knowledge, not to mention their great humor to the wonderful students during 2-week grand adventures in France. Just pick a month, or an instructor, or a subject…… it is as easy as 123 to register and then you can leave the rest to the staff at La Bonne Etoile who will guide you every minute of your preparation for 2 weeks dedicated to you and your art.  Whether you are a beginner…or a professional….La Bonne Etoile Artist Retreat is the place to be this summer….give yourself an early Christmas present and count yourself IN!!
