about our tours

The best tours and the best tutors
We have put together a calendar of the best workshops, with a group of world famous artists as your tutors. All the travel arrangements will be taken care of, so all you have to do is turn up and paint. Our European tours will give you all the care and attention you deserve — no one is left out — and our professional Tour Manager accompanying each group will be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly. 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 so that we can quickly get to work in a range of memorable painting spots. All out tutors will give you helpful and friendly advice on how to improve your painting to make sure you come back with a sketchbook full of memories. Read the descriptions to work out the best tutor for you. Most of our workshops cater for artists of all levels of painting ability and non-painting partners are welcome — they'll find plenty to do.
