Alla Prima: On Location at the Chateau de la Napoule

Painting Sunrise, Diana Buitrago

GCA, in partnership with La Napoule Art Foundation, awards an annual residency to two artists to live and paint at the Chateau de la Napoule, a 14th Century castle that was once the home of American ex-patriots Marie and Henry Clews who spent 17 years restoring the medieval castle. The landmarked castle houses the Clews collection and hosts international programs in the arts.

Here are a few summer painted sketches and pictures of the plein air painter's life to share with as we head into September! These sketches were painted by 2018 winners Diana Buitrago and Denise Antaya during their 2-week residency on the French Riviera this August.

The residency awards a $2,500 stipend towards flight and art supply costs. Also included is lodging, breakfast and travel to and from the Nice Airport.

It's never too early to plan!
Applications will be available on the GCA website on January 2, 2019.
Application deadline: April 9.
