Day 4

On the 4th Day
We visited King Renae’s hunting place, and Jill showed us where some students visit the trees if they’re feeling a bit depressed. We walked to Paul Cezannes studio uphill and visited inside. After we sketched/watercolor painted/ or used pastels with what ever inspired us. I sketched the front of the studio which included the beautiful doors, steps with flower pots, and the vines draping over. Next we walked even further uphill where we could get a good view of the mountain. We picnicked with sandwiches and painted the mountain that cezanne painted. After being freezing cold(especially with the wind), we traveled down to get some hot chocolate and crepes. After, we went back to the hotel to rest. For dinner we went out for fondu and I had the chicken, turkey, and fromage (cheese). After that, we had a surprise scavenger hunt based on all we had learned with clues at each stop. Since it was also freezing with the scavenger hunt, all of the girls went out for dessert at a nice restaurant. I got hot chocolate and Profiteroles.


Today we went to where Cezanne had his audio over-looking the beautiful nature. we saw how he would have the north light from the sun coming in from the window would give a natural light for Cezanne to use while he was painting. After we toured the inside we went outside and got to sketch any part of the house we wanted to with water color or oil pastel. When we had all finished we walked to the place where Cezanne had painted one of his famous paintings of a mountain. we sat out there on the freezing wind and painted with pastel or water color and ate delicious sandwiches over looking Aix. After the art class we went to see a figurine shop where they had very small and very large figurines of the Christmas holiday. We got to see how they were made and how long it takes to dry and paint. Finally we went to a cozy cafe to have some hot chocolate and dessert if we wanted. It was a beautiful end to a beautiful day.
