BACAA Artistic Immersion in the Loire Valley! 

Hello from Les Cerquex Sous Passavant, where we are entering our final week of an immersive workshop with master Ted Seth Jacobs. Ted is an incredible resource, teaching a combination of structural understanding and painting technique that is beyond compare. Because our group is small, we have been able to absorb individual instruction daily. Our lovely model, has provided inspiration in Ted’s north lit school. The history of the artists who have studied with Ted, and the depth of what they learned, has inspired us all to reach another level in our work. 

We have also gotten to experience the pleasures of the Loire Valley, an area rich in artistic and cultural history. We had a group dinner in Samaur, ate snails, explored castles and gardens, and saw the first complete show of Velazquez in Paris, at the Royal Palais. We will never foget visiting Ted’s house and seeing his painted walls. For all of the student’s, it’s been an experience that will inspire our work for a long time to come. 

We will be sad to go, this is a paradise on Earth. Until next year!
