October 11 – 16, 2020 – Jeni Caruana
Painting retreat in picturesque Marsala.

Join watercolor artist Jeni Caruana on the beautiful island of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea on the South side of Italy.
Our host will pick us up at Trapani Airport and drive us to Salinara.
We will be staying in charming historic villa.
We will settle into our rooms and then in the late afternoon, meet to be introduced to all the staff and talk about the programme.

As all my students know, I like to encourage everyone to achieve the best results they can in their own way. I don’t expect anyone to copy me or my methods; I would rather inspire and guide so that everyone feels confident to follow their own path. I want to show you a new way of looking at the world and your unique talents.

Everyone is different, so I tend to structure sessions with a theme in mind but in a in a flexible way. For example, a class on perspective could cover the very basics for those who need it, but also loosen up the too-tighters by using sticks or other odd tools! I teach in a responsive way, so everyone has individual attention and mini-workshops as and when needed.

Rather than set out a daily itinerary I would rather take each day as it comes and consider the weather and what the group feels they would like to do that day. We will work on site for the morning. Afternoons will be free for rest, relaxation, exploration, shopping or more painting.

In the evenings we will eat meals prepared by Salinara Chef accompanied selected local wines.

Jeni was born in England and studied at Uxbridge, Hull and Harrow Art Colleges before settling in Malta in 1977.

Since then she has held regular solo exhibitions and participated in numerous joint, group and collective exhibitions in Malta and abroad, representing Malta in UK, USA, Sardinia, Rome, Tunisia, Libya, Italy and Norway.

Paintings now hang in many public and private collections all over the world.

Jeni has been teaching drawing and watercolour techniques to adults since 1995. She regularly runs courses and workshops in drawing and watercolour for adults, specialised courses in life drawing, watercolour techniques, weekend workshops and painting outings and also art for self-expression, meditation and relaxation.
