We have been arranging dedicated painting holidays in association with The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazines for over two decades. We have also organised a special indepth study and painting course in Rome for the Sir John Soane’s Museum . We know how important light and subject matter are when selecting a painting destination.We also know that timing is critical – the weather has to be suitable for working outdoors and the height of the season must be avoided to allow you more space and peace.
We only work with professional artists who are chosen as much for their style as their ability, enthusiasm and dedication to help you develop and improve your skills and produce lots of work.
We are continually researching new destinations and hotels and re-visiting old ones to ensure that our product knowledge is up-to-date, so that we can offer you new and special experiences and that our information is accurate. We select the most reliable travel arrangements and the most convenient and comfortable accommodation.
We are trusted for our excellence, the personal service and value for money we provide. Everything is organised and included for you except lunches. We do not cut corners and there are no hidden extra costs. An accompanying travel director takes care of all the arrangements, freeing you and the guest artist to paint every day.
Each year we select different painting destinations and each holiday has just one departure date for between ten and eighteen students.
