Announcing a 2-Week Plein Air Painting Residency on the French Riviera: Apply by April 15!

In partnership with the La Napoule Art Foundation (LNAF), GCA is pleased to announce dates for the 2017 landscape painting residency for two artists on the grounds of the Chateau de La Napoule in the South of France. This year's residency runs July 11 - 25 and is open to the public.

Application Deadline: April 15, 2017.  Click here for an application.

Artists will stay at a villa on the grounds of the 14th Century Chateau de La Napoule in the historic seaside town of Mandelieu-la Napoule. The chateau is a French historical monument renowned for its restoration and architectural details. Six acres of grounds surround the property. Surrounding natural areas are accessible on foot. The public beach is close!

The residency covers lodging, breakfast and travel back and forth from the Nice airport. The villa rooms each have a private bath. There is a kitchen for cooking, and markets and restaurants nearby. The roundtrip flight is not covered. Artists need only speak the language of art, no French necessary.

-Three images. Subject matter is not limited to landscapes and can include figure, cast and still life. Drawings, particularly figure drawings, are encouraged.
-$25 application fee
