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.

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.
