Art Course

From 7th till 14th of May 2022, Art Course in Umbria, Tuoro sul Trasimeno

You will be staying in our beautiful Villa Roccaccia. The villa is located on the outskirts of Lake Trasimeno and is surrounded by olive trees and vineyards.

The apartments are completely renovated in 2017. They are very comfortable and fitted with all modern conveniences. You wil stay in La Cucina, La Cantina or Il Magazzino.


Your teacher for this week is Trudy van Meeuwen. She has worked as a visual arts teacher at a high school in the Netherlands. She has followed her education at the Academy of fine Arts in Arendonk, Belgium. She also had several exhibitions of work throughout the Netherlands.


She guide you in your creative process and based on your personal wishes, she can advise you in the field of what materials to the use of color and imagery. You will be working mainly with acrylic paint, but if you prefer something else, that’s also a possibility. The lessons will be held in small groups, so that there will be plenty of time for each person. It doesn’t matter if you are a pro or a beginner, everybody is welcome.




After arrival and introduction, the next day an exploration of the area follows to gain inspiration for the painting lessons and a personal plan of approach is drawn up. Lessons are taught and painted around Villa Roccaccia or at one of the beautiful spots in the area.


A tasting of local products and an excursion are also part of the program. And Italy wouldn’t be Italy if it weren’t for the delicious food. Every day we have breakfast, lunch and dinner together. For more info, send an email to
