Art Painting Holidays

It’s been encouraging to be able to host the Art Painting Holidays whilst observing Covid 19 restrictions. We throughly enjoyed supplying the experience to our guests/budding artists. Here are some photos and testimonials from this year and others before the pandemic.

Thanks so much for the art course, it is supremely well organised and wonderfully enjoyable. What a break from work!Painting superb locations with Colin to give us the confidence just to dive in and paint!Others in the same position which also give security mentally, Lovely company, you, Colin, Liz and the other participants, Great accommodation, Fabulous food.

I really appreciated your attention to detail and the willingness to go the extra mile, your teams’ dedication and hard work and faultless organisation.

Just Brilliant. 

If I can, I’ll come again!

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the course. I learned so much during my first experience of ‘en plein air’ painting with a palette knife. The company and food were all superb too.”

“I liked your teaching method – more educare than didactic.”

“ Friendly course, beautiful location, helpful tutor tuition/ critique . Accommodation and food excellent. I feel my painting has developed appreciably.”

“I hadn’t painted in a long while and this course gave me the encouragement I needed and so much enjoyed – thank you.”

“I’d never used a palette knife to paint with before but am now fairly sold on it and the freedom it gives.”
