PAINTING WORKSHOPS

There is no better feeling than sitting with your sketchbook on your lap, the sun warming your back as you marvel at the brand new landscape before you. Stunning scenery, beautiful buildings, unusual sounds, sweet aromas carried on a balmy breeze… The stimulation of a different country can bring out the best in an artist — and that's why our painting workshop vacations are so popular. With world famous artists as tutors, we'll paint and sketch, go sightseeing, explore out-of-the-way places as well as the legendary sights of each country we visit. We'll sample local cuisine and talk to the people we meet on our travels, so you get the real traveller's experience. We have selected the very best painting locations and artists so that we can quickly get to work in a range of memorable painting spots.
