Treat yourself to a unique and exciting artistic adventure, with exclusive tuition available for both budding and accomplished artists.

As the courses run across three seasons of the year, you will have the freedom to engage with and paint landscapes which are to your specific preference.

You will travel each day to different locations and experience one-to-one tuition, demonstrations, daily critique sessions and an informal end-of-week final critique session.

Art Courses & Holidays

Suitable for all, from complete novices who are curious and have never lifted a paintbrush to the well-experienced and advanced artist. Furthermore, with a wide variety of programme lengths, we really have something to suit everyone.

If you are travelling with a friend who does not wish to take part in the painting lessons, don’t worry – there are plenty of non-painting activities to do such as, sight-seeing, walking, photography, cycling or just relaxing in the amazing landscape etc.

The benefits of coming with us on our art painting holidays.

Art Courses across 3 seasons of the year

The time of year is chosen for the best light conditions, colours, and weather for painting outdoors. Remember it is the Peak District and the weather can be interesting!

Great for Beginners and Experienced Artists

Colin is sublime in his skill set, enabling him to be flexible with catering for beginners, the more experienced, as well as those with varying backgrounds in different types of painting.

Relaxed Environment and Teaching

Our environment affects us emotionally and mentally; painting outdoors inspires the individual in ways far beyond studio-bound classes could ever achieve.
