I am teaching again in Orvieto, Italy, September 16-22, 2018!  Painting in Italy is offered through Adventure in Italy.  I have very fond memories of our painting workshop in 2014 creating colorful memories in our watercolor journals.  We had so much fun exploring Orvieto – what great food, wonderful wine tasting, friendly people and it was so inspiring to be surrounded by beautiful Italian art!

Join Jacqueline Newbold on an artistic journey of creative expression! Our home base will be a charming medieval village in Provence, France as we have fun painting and creating art in our watercolor journals or on watercolor paper.

We will incorporate watercolor and mixed-media art journaling techniques as we explore Provence, rich with sights, sounds and colors – all wonderful inspiration for developing your artistic eye. The local colors will inspire us as we play with luscious ochres and rich gem-tone colors from the surrounding landscapes.

Jacqueline will share her favorite ideas for creating paintings-on-the-go using watercolor washes and mixed-media ideas. Discover how magically enjoyable it is to record your life voyages as you slow down and savor your time in France.

Painting in Provence:  Experience the magic of Provence: cypresses, olive trees, red-tile roofs, screeches of cicadas, scents of wild thyme and lavender, medieval villages, colorful markets and of course sun-filled landscapes, the very same that inspired the Post-Impressionists. You will discover why Provence has been an inspiration for generations of artists like Van Gogh and Cezanne. A trip you will never forget!

Jacqueline loves to share her passion for watercolor painting and mixed-media art journaling by teaching in her Art in My Heart private studio, the Art Unraveled Art Retreats in Phoenix, the Art & Soul Retreats in Portland, Oregon, France, and Italy.

Artist Jacqueline Newbold Art Journals and Sketches

Much of Newbold’s inspiration comes from her travels. She brings her efficiently organized backpack of painting supplies and art journal and experiments with various imaginative ways to combine watercolor with mixed-media.  Spending time creating in her art journal is her favorite artistic outlet.

“Art journaling to me is not so much about making art but recording my life in a colorful way.  My journals are a place where I can experiment with different art mediums, sort things out, write about my life, my sorrows, my adventures, and travels.  I play with color, sketch, doodle, take notes, make lists, add inspiring quotes and write about my day.  The process is fun, and I love when the result surprises me.
