is designed to offer English speaking artists and photographers the opportunity
to study paint and photograph on-location in
Claude Monet's gardens, and
around his beloved village of Giverny,
Instruction is based on the classic principles of fine art, with special emphasis on analyzing composition and color directly from nature. Instruction is available in all media, tailored to the needs of the individual, from beginner to practicing professional. Lecture/demonstrations by staff are held several times a week, as are group critiques and discussions. All instruction at AS/G is driven by the belief that observation should be the key that unlocks the creative imagination, not the cage that traps it... and is therefore applicable to varied artistic styles without prejudice.
Enrollment is based on 8 or 11 day sessions, and are generally limited to 8 students at any given time. The weekly fee covers food, lodging and instruction, and althoughinstruction is optional, the fee remains the same, due to the limited enrollment.
At AS/G you will discover a new and rewarding approach to painting and photographing directly from nature, and at Giverny, you will be following in the footsteps of Monet, Pissarro, Cezanne, Mary Cassatt, Theodore Robinson, and all of the other great artists who painted here and loved it.
