Megognano Studio - Painting Programs and Vacations

Our artists' studio and base for painting excursions is located in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena. To the immediate south lies the historic medieval city of San Gimignano; to the east and north numerous other beautiful hill towns such as Petrognano-Semifonte, Barberino val d'Elsa, and Linari; immediately to the west, Certaldo, home to Boccaccio and birthplace of the Italian language. We are in the middle of a beautiful stretch of rolling hills and valleys, of fields and woodland, wine and olive groves.
I know of no place in the world better suited to painting landscapes.
