I am pleased to announce multiple upcoming workshops for women artists, which I am co-hosting with an India-based team, in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas. In Fall 2020, join us for a wonderful painting trip with Sarah Yeoman, an internationally acclaimed watercolor artist and an exceptionally empathetic teacher. If you dream of embarking on a creative holiday with a group that values companionship, comfort and security, then this is an opportunity you don't want to miss!

The all-inclusive trip kicks off when we meet you at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in New Delhi on the afternoon of Oct 28, 2020 and ends when we see you off on the morning of Nov 5, 2020.

AGRA

Agra enjoyed its golden period when the Mughal Empire reigned over most of India. Though those days are long gone, the magnificent buildings the Mughals built still stand tall today and draw millions of visitors every year.

We will visit the Taj Mahal, Itimad-ud-Daula's Mausoleum (a hidden gem), and Agra Fort. Please note, writing and sketching materials are banned at the Taj Mahal. However, you'll be able to take plenty of photos!

KANGRA FORT

Overlooking a valley where two mountain streams merge with each other, the Kangra Fort is not only the largest fort in the Himalayas, it is also believed to be the oldest. The first known mention of the fort in written records dates back to the Eleventh Century!

The Kangra Valley is dotted with famous temples and shrines, and, on this excursion, we'll have the opportunity to visit a Jain temple, which is located inside the fort.
