Before the Online Workshop: You will receive the photos and sketches of the locations as well as the supply list. We will also organize a short (30 min) orientation meeting for all the registered participants to make sure everyone is comfortable with the application.
This is a very hands-on workshop and Judy will guide you step by step through her process of subject choice, analyzing a scene to work out the values and eliminate unnecessary details.
You will be clearly taken through color choices, with Judy showing how to mix paints to create warm and cool colors that work together, plus close-up views of both the palette and paints. Learn how to mix interesting greens and achieve realistic variations, which are notoriously tricky in watercolor. Judy loves to take you on a journey with watercolor, breaking down the process into simple steps and allowing you to do what makes your heart sing! You will find the Workshop to be both fun and inspirational.
Throughout the Workshop you will be able to:
· Interact with Judy as you would in a face-to-face workshop in real time
· View demonstrations with key learning elements step by step
· Have your questions answered during the class
· Show your artwork back to Judy online and get instant feedback
· Learn from the feedback given to other participants
· Receive images of the workshop subjects in advance
· Receive individual attention due to limited participant numbers

French Escapade has been dedicated to bring the artist community together since 2004 by offering plein-air painting workshops in amazing settings abroad or in the US.
In today’s challenging times, we want this sense of community to continue even though we are all confined in our homes and isolated from one another.
So V.I.E.W., our Virtual Interactive Escapade Workshop, is a program whose goal in not only to offer online painting classes, but also a sense of camaraderie in small groups of people painting together as friends. Like in our plein-air painting workshops, we wish to recreate this congeniality that we lack so much when sheltered in place. Our wonderful team of instructors has jumped on board with enthusiasm and has at heart to bring art and comfort to you in this trying time.
From your home, you will participate in our Virtual Interactive Escapade Workshop hosted by Jackie and instructed by one of our art instructors on your laptop, desktop or Ipad.
You can mirror the screen of your Ipad or computer to your TV screen (smart TVs, Apple TV, …). We will help you for the setup if you do not feel comfortable. We will also do a group test prior to the first online painting session to make sure you are comfortable using the application.
With V.I.E.W., you can sign-up for a live online workshop from a wide variety of artists, media and levels all in one place.

You will need to download an application. We will let you know which one when you sign up. The application is free and very easy to use. You can download it on your mobile, your tablet or your computer. We recommend using a computer (PC or Mac) because the screen is bigger and it will allow you to see the demo better.
You can contact us and we will help you but it is really a 3 min straight forward process.
We organize a short meeting with all the participants the day before the first session to make sure everyone knows how to use it. It is very simple to use.
We send you an invitation to the meeting via email ahead of time with the date and time of the meeting. When it is time, you just need to click on the link to enter the online session. The moderator will be able to see that you are trying to join and will let you in.
Don’t worry, that won’t happen. There is always be a member of French Escapade facilitating the session. Everyone have their microphone muted and the moderator lets people ask questions one at the time when it is appropriate in the session.
Yes, you paint during the session. After a short demo from the teacher, everyone has time to paint for a specific length of time. During that time, you can ask questions to the teacher if you encounter a problem with your painting. After the painting time, the teacher proceedes with more content (demo, techniques,…) and then again, after that demo, you paint what you just learned and so on. The goal is for you to have finished a painting (or close to that) at the end of the session. During the third session, everyone can share their work with the teacher and the other participant and get feedback from the teacher. You don’t need to share if you don’t feel comfortable but we encourage you to do so in order to receive feedback.
We send everyone the teacher’s recommended painting supplies list ahead of time.
You can turn off the camera via the application. We will still see your name in a black box.
Unfortunately we can refund you. You pay for a 3 session package.
No. The V.I.E.W. workshop is only for registered participants. The moderator can see everyone accessing the session and will only accept the people who are registered.
