Travel Painting in Quebec, Canada

There are a lot of art courses available, some pertaining to travel-painting, but this one is more of an adventure than most. Michael Kluckner will be conducting a week-long course in June in Percé, on the Gaspé peninsula in eastern Quebec, Canada, as part of the University of Laval's summer school of the arts. The course is conducted in the former studio of a New York painter named Frederick James, who built it in the 1880s as a summer retreat, and students find accommodation in historic cottages nearby and work out of doors for much of the week in the incredibly picturesque village and on nearby Ile Bonaventure, a national park. The course will be conducted in French (but with a lot of translation available if necessary). Link to details about the course through Michael Kluckner's website, www.michaelkluckner.com, and contact him directly if you have questions before registering.
