Workshop in Holland!

 A Dutch Workshop !


4-12 September 2014...get ready!

This workshop will consist of eight days, including five days of painting, one day for a museum visit, and two free days. The two free days (on which you may sight-see, paint, or do whatever else may appeal), and the museum day (where I will accompany the class to talk about the work we'll see), will be scheduled once we are in Holland. This will enable us to have some flexibility with the weather.

 We will based in Alkmaar, in Noord Holland, convenient to farmland, the seacoast, and polders (with their windmills). Alkmaar is only 30 minutes from Haarlem (Frans Hals Museum) and 40 minutes from Amsterdam. It's my intention that we will paint both in villages and in the countryside. We may also paint one day in town.

We now have a quorum for the trip, with a small number of additional places available. Please let me know immediately if you would like to join us.

My workshops are different from some in terms of arrangements. The tuition fee of $790.00 covers only tuition. In order to be registered, you must send a deposit of $395.00 at the time of registration. 

This deposit will be non-refundable after 1 June 2014. The balance of tuition ($395.00) is due not later than 15 June 2014. 

Checks should be made to Donald Jurney, and sent to Donald Jurney, 9 Strong Street, Newburyport, MA 01950. Your registration will be promptly acknowledged by email.

Transportation to and from the Netherlands, car rental, accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and other incidentals are the responsibility of each student.

Anton Mauve
Many students combine workshop trips with other travel and we've found that allowing students to make their own reservations for transportation is best. Likewise, students seem to have different ideas about what they would prefer in terms of lodging, etc. Thus it's proven most satisfactory for students to suit their own needs. If you should wish to share a room with another student, let me know and I will put you in touch.

Claude Monet
I will be sending out some accommodation ideas and links to registrants in the near future.

Willem Tholen
Regarding car rentals: public transportation in the Netherlands is very good. Our inter-city travel will be done by train. But for local travel into the countryside, cars will, regrettably, be required. If you would like to share car rental expense with other students, please let me know and I will put you in touch.

Johannes Vermeer
At the moment, Icelandic Air is offering a fare of $925, roundtrip, Boston to Amsterdam, via Keflavik.

Materials lists, equipment lists, etc., will be sent to registrants as soon as their deposits have been received.

I look forward to painting with you in September! Please don't hesitate to write if you should have any questions (
