Art in Provence

Art in Provence

This will be the year I finally take a painting course, and I want it to be this one! Jill Steenhuis is an American Impressionist who conducts week-long workshops in Aix-en-Provence. As one of only a few artists in the world with access to the privately owned Chateau Noir (where Cézanne painted from 1865-1898), Jill works from many of the same scenes as the great Master: the pistachio tree in the courtyard, Chateau Noir seen from the olive grove, Chateau Noir seen from under the pines, and Mt. Ste. Victoire seen from Chateau Noir, to name a few.
