What if you could grab your paints, explore the sun-drenched, vine-covered Tuscan hills, breathe in the culture, the food, the wine, hear the music, the gorgeous language, and have a seasoned artist teach you how to achieve vibrant color, loosen your brushwork, and find joy and excitement in your work again…all from the comfort of your home. At your own pace. With a group of like-minded artists supporting you along the journey?
Maybe you’d call that too good to be true. Maybe you’d even call it a dream experience.
Artist Dreama Tolle Perry was the very first to offer adventure-style painting courses (the first taking place in Provence!) and now she’s bringing you to Italy. As soon as you register you will be able login immediately and access all of the course content. You can work through at your own pace, in your own space! Course content will be available to you for one year!
Designed for varying levels of experience, this adventure will be released over six creatively-infused modules and goes way beyond a ‘how to’ painting course; immersing you in the adventure, inspiration, energy, and creativity that is Tuscany.
From adventure videos to instructional painting videos to personal videos from Dreama herself—these images will carry your heart to magical places, add new joy to your art, and allow you to paint at your own pace from your own place. You’ll get access to:
9 brand new, step-by-step painting videos to help you get more beautiful, vibrant colors + expressive brushwork in your paintings immediately. I believe that brush work is the soul of a painting and will teach you techniques to make your work feel more expressive, personal, and infused with emotion. Bonus: 20 additional photos to paint from. (Goodbye, procrastination and painter’s block!)
6 adventure videos with the tastes, villages, and colors of Tuscany to get your creative inspiration flowing.
Sweet life videos to set your heart at ease and artsy maps to see where you’re headed to next.
One-on-one inspiration videos from Dreama that speak heart to heart from artist to artist.
Along with the how to of making gorgeous, glowing colors, the course covers:
If you’ve never taken a course online before, don’t fret. Our courses are designed and built to be incredibly intuitive, easy-to-navigate, and visually appealing.
And for those who feel painting is personal or there is a level of shyness to the learning, this is the perfect solution – because you’re painting at home, at your own pace, and possibly in your pajamas.
Best part? You have access to the Timeless Tuscany site for one full year!
Added into the Timeless Tuscany experience is a private Facebook group full of like-hearted artists, all ready to share the joy awaiting this online adventure. You can share, chat, get advice on everything from framing to paints to selling.
Bonus: sticking with your commitment gets a whole lot easier when you know you have an amazing community behind you holding you accountable and rooting for you.
All thoughtfully put together in one beautiful place online – just for you!
Am I allowed to put myself as a course feature? I say yes. In addition to the technical teaching I provide, I offer helpful, heart-full advice from artist to artist. We all struggle with the ‘not good enough’ monster that lurks when we have the courage to create. For many of us we feel we ‘started too late in life’ or ‘don’t have enough talent to be a real artist.’
This self-sabotage and limiting thought pattern spills over into our art and I’m all about beauty and joy, not fear or failure. We’re not into strict do’s and don’ts or critiques or rights and wrongs. I want you to feel excitement in the doing and not just the finishing. I want you to embrace the present moment and feel encouraged and inspired to continue.
Benvenuto—Welcome to Tuscany! Lots of delicious things planned for you in week one. Gelato galore and a village sounding like a fairytale on the lips—Castellina in Chianti. Breakaways and takeaways, travel postcards, your own playlist for Italy, a little Italiano spoken and 3 paintings makes for a very full week—delightful!
Let’s take some winding walks down the streets of Montefioralle. How about a visit to the Monday market that’s been open every week since the 12th century? Ooh, or the enduring beauty of a winery just outside the hilltop village. Even better: ALL OF THEM. Yes, this is all part of our adventure this week: flower pots almost as big as you, filled with the heat-loving flowers of Tuscany await our paint brushes! Fun things waiting on you in our aptly named Mama Mia section will have you thinking, eating, and speaking Italian. Of course we have more bonus pics for you and some words of inspiration to stir you in all the right ways.
Did someone say take a ride? There’s nothing like driving through the hills of Tuscany on a mission to find the most deliciously paintable casa. This week you can check that off your bucket list! It’s so handsome we may paint it twice (once in oil and my watercolor journal makes a brief, but oh so fun, cameo appearance!) Can’t think of a better ending to a day than eating homemade pizza at an Italian family home—so that is just what we do. Yummy recipes, juicy painting, and wonderful Italian pinups for your creative space. And did I mention bonus photos of Italy for you to paint? All Italy, all for you!
Slip inside the daily life of Tuscany this week. From puppet-making olive growers to an old Italian home that has been in the same family for…ever, we touch the very spirit of what makes Tuscany so special! A town filled with towers from the 12th century and laundry furled above open windows that begs to be painted. So of course we do just that! More immersing in the sweet life with quiet time videos, more travel postcard entries and more enchanting photos of Italy that are yours to paint!
Mama mia, we do love to paint a field of sunflowers under the hot Tuscan sun! On the way there, we sneak a peek at Mona Lisa’s house and a medieval city set amidst the sweeping hills of Tuscany. Learn a little Italian, paint a landscape, daydream….repeat! Bonus photos this week include roses blooming in vine laden fields but you didn’t hear that from me…;-)
A weaving of past and present comes to life at every turn in Tuscany. Vistas of wine slopes are in view as we travel winding roads. Our meandering stroll down narrow village streets provide the perfect things to paint! You’ll get: postcard prompts to get your creative side talking, Italian quotes for you to print out, and more bonus photos for you to paint! Did I mention that this week there will also be a bonus painting that might involve some whiskers and fur? Meow!! Two paintings, bonus photos and plenty of time to immerse yourself in Italy. La dolce vita. It IS the sweet life!
Fun math: This boils down to a little under a buck a day to have Tuscany and yours truly at your fingertips (and brush tips) for one year! Note: The cost of live domestic workshops + airfare, hotel, car rental, and food makes it easy to drop > $2k on a few days study (and if you are heading out of the country, it’s more like > $5k. As incredible as that can be, it’s not feasible for everyone...and you also can’t go back and rewind and rewatch for one full year ;)
This is not simply a "painting Course" !!!! it's a totally remarkable experience for any level ( literally true beginner to advanced). You will learn more than painting skills as Dreama's approach is a 360 degree view of the artists: goals, music, cooking recipes, ideas, advice, inspiration, humor, travels etc. Dreama works her magic and you gain a wonderful group of supportive fellow artists as you share the class together. Well worth the price - I can't wait for her next Course to begin!!!
As soon as you register you will be able to login immediately and access all of the course content — split into 6 modules and filled to the brim with painting videos and inspiration, along with Tuscany adventure videos. Course content will be available to you for 12 months
The six modules will coordinate with instructional videos resulting in 9 brand spanking new paintings for you to paint, beautiful PDF downloads, lesson notes, passionate postcards that motivate, a fun Mambo Italiano section and so much more. All you have to do is make the time to paint (which you’ll feel so inspired from the content and the group, you’ll be astounded at how much easier it is!)
You can access this course from anytime, anywhere! Across all your devices and in your pajamas at home whenever you're ready to paint with us. And did I mention - full access to the course site for 12 months!
