Betty Huang, owner of Studio B Art Gallery located in downtown Easton, Maryland, has just returned from Tuscany, Italy with a group of talented students. Betty and the group of students spent eight days in the heart of Tuscany in world-class workshops led by plein air artist Qiang Huang.

Qiang taught students how to choose dramatic compositions, observe light distribution, and use bold and loose strokes to create a powerful and accurate representation.


You had done a great job in finding the right spot in beautiful Tuscany, where you could find picturesque landscape and buildings wherever the eye could reach. I learned a lot from Qiang’s methodological teaching style, which was equally relevant for the beginners and more seasoned painters. His patience and constructive comments were most appreciated.”


“Thank you Betty for your organization and thank you Qiang for you course and your patience! We spent a wonderful week and I hope I remember all painting tricks!”


“The landscape was gorgeous and I enjoyed my many walks. The icing on the cake was Loredana and her wonderful cooking.”


You made sure everyone had what they wanted with, food, wine, vodka and experiences to last a lifetime. Having Loredana cooking for us, topped the cake…pun intended. And Eddie, he was a wonderful bonus, helping and assisting you and all of us in anyway he could. “


It was such a terrific trip, a new workshop experience for me, and I learn a lot and enjoyed so much being with all of you.”


Your photos are beautiful and are wonderful reminders of the delicious and convivial dinners we shared at the Villa.”


“I definitely lucked into the best possible trip to Italy!”
