Our exceptional painting tutors

Our tutors are crucial to the success of our painting holidays. They are hand- picked for their talent, warmth and charm. All are exceptionally well qualified with real teaching experience and a sense of humour! Our groups are small and there is plenty of individual tuition for budding and accomplished artists alike. Our tutors are totally committed, teaching for 6 – 8 hours per day, enabling you to reach your painting potential. At the end of the week, enjoy an informal exhibition of your work, with a glass of fizz! Many guests make close bonds with our tutors and follow them to new locations every year. We also introduce new tutors annually adding a fresh enthusiasm to the team. We are one of the few painting holiday companies who are ATOL protected – travel with us in confidence.

Our painting holiday locations & hotels

Operating since 1997, we have built up an enviable catalogue of idyllic painting locations all over the world. Our painting tutors carefully select the best vantage points, ensuring no time is wasted getting into position! We paint in private gardens, ancient cultural sites, in spectacular mountain scenery, in the bustle and energy of the souk and many more inspiring locations. We have built strong links with local guides, hoteliers and restaurateurs, many of whom are now close friends. All our hotels are chosen for their rustic charm and friendly service. All have excellent food, pretty gardens, and some have swimming pools. Be sure that we never miss the opportunity to taste wine, cheese and olive oil!

Fun and friendship on our painting holidays

Our painting holidays are incredibly sociable with over 60% returning each year with friends, or to make new ones. Many make close bonds with our painting tutors and follow them to new locations every year. Over 70% of our guests are single travellers, joining our small groups of fellow artists for an enriching experience. A free day is always included in our painting holidays for shopping, swimming or simply relaxing. Every evening we come together at mealtimes to share our shared passion for artistic pursuits.
