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.

Oh my, we missed her so much last year and are really looking forward to having our Dyer Fix!!  Margaret will be teaching the figure from live models and photos,  either in oil or pastel. NANCY TANKERSLEY  will return for the second time in September 2017 after teaching a smashing workshop to a dynamic group last year. Once again, she will have the opportunity and time to combine the content of her domestic workshops under the single topic of “Painting with Confidence”.

We are so fortunate to have these instructors offer their time and knowledge, (not to mention their great humor) to all who attend this magical 2-week adventure in France. Not only will the instruction be over the top, but you will also experience the french culture, up close and personal, through exciting excursions and fabulous meals by Chef Marc Bost….mmmmm.
