Join ASLD in the South of France, at the beautiful La Napoule Art Foundation for a special atelier taught by ASLD faculty member Sammy Lee. Lee’s focus will be on creating a one-of-a-kind, unique artist book using mixed media techniques while responding to the beauty of the setting, its architecture, light, and the Mediterranean. You may work in your favorite media, including painting, drawing, cyanotype, and assemblage (with locally found objects). Lee will introduce her paper felting, casting, and accordion book structures to capture your stories in a special book format.

Prices include accommodations at La Napoule’s Villa Marguerite; all breakfasts & lunches; 3 dinners, including one Michelin-starred restaurant; local wine selection; art materials, instruction, and critique.
