Paint Puglia’s spectacular landscapes in the open air and capture Puglia’s beauty on canvas, supported by John, a professional seasoned Californian art teacher, who has exhibited his work throughout Italy and the USA. John emigrated to the area fifteen years ago after finding peace and inspiration in Puglia’s tranquil beauty.

What better way to understand the regions’ intimate secrets, handed down through generations of sculptors and culture of Baroque architecture, than taking a tour with a local sculptor.
