"I have taken four international watercolor workshops with Kathy and will be joining her on a fifth in 2018 – all have been exceptional. Kathy is a knowledgeable and patient instructor who is able to encourage her students to relax and visually explore the landscapes they are painting. She gives demonstrations during the workshops and also gives students her insight into how they can improve their watercolors."
Jackie C.

"This trip was so perfect I didn't want to go home. San Fedele is the most scenic and peaceful place to experience Tuscany. We were able to take short day trips to beautiful locations to sketch and paint with Kathy, and always came back to a welcoming atmosphere. The staff from Il Chiostro treated us like family and organized everything perfectly, and we had a wonderful time!"
Peggy A.

“Kathy did a fantastic job of leading us in painting each day through the towns and landscapes. The Italy trip totally exceeded my expectations! Never having gone to Europe, I didn't know what to expect really. But now I fear I'm completely spoiled by our trip to Italy as it was the most amazing, stress free, wonderful time of my life! The people, food, art and painting were perfect. Thank you so much for this fantastic experience!”
Katie K.

“San Fedele was an indescribable experience with wonderful people, culture, food and wine plus painting the Tuscan region with Kathy as our loyal leader and teacher. My heart will never forget this adventure. Grazie, Grazie, Grazie!!!”
