Terra Magica

painting workshop with Tatjana

Explore your creativity in one of the world's most inspiring landscapes, Istria.

May 2019 Istria, Croatia

This workshop is a unique opportunity to join Tatjana in her native Istria and immerse yourself in the color and culture of the artist's native land. You will recognize many of Tatjana's inspirations during this week rich in heart and mind opening experiences. Every day you will have the opportunity to work in individual and group sessions with Tatjana, who is known for her skill in bringing out people's creative abilities.


There are three regions in the Mediterranean belt renowned worldwide for their unique blend of beauty, culture and history: Provence, Tuscany and Istria. Istria, the least explored of the three, is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. Veiled in myth and mystery, the ancient Romans named it “Terra Magica”, meaning Magical Land. This land will provide a magnificent and rich locale for our artistic exploration.


Tatjana will offer studio and plein aire classes in watercolor and pastel. We will be based in Rovigno (Rovinj) and will take short excursions to villages and regions of inland Istria and boat trips along the coast, including Tatjana’s native village of Vrsar. We will visit local markets and vineyards and dine in small taverns and slow food family restaurants. Along the way we will cover materials and techniques, introduction to intuitive sketching, and train in letting our creative expression guide us in the opening of our potential. There will be studio classes (3-4 hrs each) at our base in Rovinj to allow us to drop into our work and receive personal instruction from the artist. This is a unique opportunity to learn from Tatjana and develop our own creative expression and insight.

No previous experience is necessary, all levels are welcome. Classes are intimate (8-10 people max.) We are still working on finalizing the details and the final numbers will be available in October 2018.
