Testimonial, Julie Houck"The plein air workshop in Southern France was wonderful! Julie's class and all the individual attention I received really helped me develop my own style. If you love art, beautiful scenery, European history, good food and wine, wonderful accommodations and service, you should definitely take this trip! It was one of the most memorable and magical experiences I have ever had!" - Michelle Winters, NYC

Testimonial for France  "Thank you again for creating a workshop that was all I hoped for and more. Words simply cannot convey what a great job you and your crew do." - Paul King, Nashville, Tennessee






" ...My first class in oils was with Julie. Her class was everything I expected an art class to be. Julie is professional, knowledgeable and encouraging. She teaches classical principles and not just a style or technique. Some artists can paint, some can teach, but Julie does both beautifully." - Evelyn King DDS, Albuquerque, New Mexico



Testimonial Julie Houck workshops    "Thank you for the wondrous experience of painting with you in southern France! It has been a brilliant ten days. Your knowledge coupled with your expertise in demonstrating technique relevant to the students' ability was invaluable, and your illuminating individual critiques at the end of the day were always empowering. A testimony to your warm and giving personality, and your talent as both a painter and gifted teacher is the number of painters who return year after year!" - Susan Caulton, New Zealand
