Veliky Ustyug, on the Sukhona River in Northwestern Russia

Plan now to take advantage of a rare opportunity to paint and study painting in Russia from August 22-September 7, 2013 with two master painters, one of whom is a professor from the Surikov Institute (at the Russian Academy, founded by Catherine the Great).

The Surikov Institute

Those who are fortunate enough to join this special trip to Russia will visit artists and museums and will have an opportunity to paint in Moscow and St. Petersburg. During the 10-day tour, participants will benefit from intensive study in the great Veliky Ustyug, a well-preserved historic area in northern Russian, with beautiful landscapes and traditional Russian cabins. This is not a workshop, but a transformative event with strong one-one-one direction from Russian masters. It will be an experience of a lifetime for painters, an opportunity to upgrade skills to a higher level. Attendance is limited, and reservations are required by May 2013.
