About this trip

Watercolor Workshop in Dordogne, France – October 3-10, 2023

Join Lynn Zimmerman for an exciting workshop in France as she leads you through some of the loveliest parts of France. 

Our home base for this plein air workshop is the historic town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, noted for its honey-colored stone building and stone-tile roofs. We will stay in the center of this once-walled town, giving you easy access to painting sites and services, such as shops and restaurants.

There is a large, outdoor market on one day we’ll be in Sarlat where you can stock up for a picnic lunch or merely take in the sights and sounds.

Take an elevator up through an ancient church tower to see Sarlat from above. Sit and paint in one of the town’s plazas and parks. Take a coffee in an outdoor cafe, or stroll about on one of Sarlat’s many pedestrian-friendly streets.

One day we’ll head out to view some of the many chateaux that overlook the Dordonge River and we’ll stop in one for a tour and to let you paint in the chateaux’s extensive gardens.

There will be painting each day, but your time will be balanced between painting and other activities. Plus there will be free time in the afternoon when you can choose between painting, exploring, or perhaps a siesta.

Lynn will lead daily painting demonstrations and will assist students individually. Artists of all skill levels and media are very welcome.

The area is know for its cuisine and of course for its wines. We will dine in many fine restaurants and offer you an optional wine tasking.

Other activities:
Non-painting  partners and others are welcome to join our adventure enjoying the many cultural activities and additional excursions planned.

Traveling can be stressful, but we take the worry out of travel by handling all the hard bits for you. We do the planning, book the hotels, and reserve your restaurant. We know the villages to visit, the vineyards to tour, and the cooking classes to attend. We set all this up for you. Then we make your trip easy. First we pick you up at the airport in a small van and whisk you to your hotel. We travel with you from place to place, from activity to activity, and finally deliver you back to the airport for your flight home.


Very nice way to sample 100 miles of the Camino de Santiago. The well organized, friendly company made everything go smoothly. The route we took was rich with scenery and medieval architecture. Our experience was culturally rich, too, as we were inside Spanish society for a week and exposed to many of its signature national treasures, forward among them the tapas bars, Rioja wines, ancient churches, and the Camino itself.

This trip exceeded my expectations in every way. The walking was great, the accomodations lovely, the support was perfectly gauged, the food and wine were wonderful--even for a vegetarian--and the small group was compatible and fun to travel with. The organizers made the entire week run perfectly smoothly so we could all relax and just enjoy being in Spain, walking the Camino. There was a little free time built into very day to allow exploration of the churches, cathedrals, villages and cities we visited.
