Welcome to Lisa’s Gryphon Art and Travel, the place where you can “Get a GRYP hon” your own creativity.
During your 10-day holiday, your home away from home will be a lovingly maintained chateau or 16th century Italian agriturismo (farm/villa).
Your hosts and hostesses are all excited to provide you with a true immersion experience of their beautiful areas, often acting as our personal guides to the best-kept secrets of the regions. Your meals are expertly prepared regional cuisine and wine is included.
We also provide the best and most-requested art teachers. They are here to provide daily art instruction and welcome all levels of students.
Along with new skills, many of our guests develop life-long friendships and valuable networks that they otherwise would not have created.
Today the world is a small place and we are all really more alike than different. Traveling and creating with Lisa’s Gryphon will provide you an opportunity to experience this for yourself.
And as Lisa so often says,
“It’s a small world…SOMEONE’s got to paint it!”
“In my business I am constantly on the lookout for great instructors, those artist/teachers who have, not only a breadth and depth of knowledge, but the ability to share that knowledge with students of various learning styles in ways that make the creative process come alive for each person. Having had the opportunity to observe her in action in her studio classes and having had the benefit of her instruction myself, I can say without a doubt, Melissa Weinman is an absolute gem! I highly recommend her to any painter who hopes to expand their painting skills.” -Lisa
