“On two wonderful occasions I had to opportunity to go on Jane La Fazio’s Sketching and Watercolor trips. I can honestly say they were life changing experiences. We traveled to beautiful places filled with inspiration for our watercolor sketches. Each day Jane gave us clear and inspiring lessons, teaching us to see things in a new way. Her patience, kindness and sharing of her passion for seeing the world through an artist’s eyes were something we all benefitted from. I look forward to my next adventure with Jane and the wonderful students she inspires to travel with her. I want to add that upon returning from my last trip with Jane, I realized I was literally tingling with excitement to create some little piece of art every day. Thank you, Jane!” Pat Dicker Mill Valley, California
“Travelling with Jane is like meeting your best friend for an adventure. Along the way you will find inspiration, education, encouragement, food, wine, fun, a bit of history and lots of love – all with people you’ll feel as though you’ve known forever. With Jane’s gentle (and persistent) help I have learnt that I can draw – something I never thought I would say and have found a new and wonderfully creative outlet that I can pursue anywhere. If you have a chance to experience one of Jane’s trips, make sure you grab it and then hold on for the trip of a lifetime.” Leanne G. Melbourne, Australia
