Frederick Brosen and Costa Vavagiakis

Workshop Description

Experience Amsterdam under the tutelage of two of the Art Students League’s long-time instructors, Frederick Brosen and Costa Vavagiakis. This 8-night, 9-day immersive art workshop in late spring should not be missed. Students will benefit from the unique opportunity of interacting with both instructors as they work outdoors at chosen locations along the canals and in the parks of this 17th century city.

Accommodations at the Mercure Central Canal Hotel offer a perfect location for outdoor painting and drawing, as well as being within walking distance of several great museums, including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum

This workshop includes hotel accommodations, with a daily full Dutch breakfast; both a first and last night group dinner at local restaurants; two full-day escorted trips to nearby cities (to be determined) in a chartered coach; an escorted visit to the Rijksmuseum; and a Museumkaart pass that is good for entrance to all museums in Amsterdam and neighboring cities. We hope you will join us for what promises to be an exceptional trip for all involved!
