Overall an excellent experience! Andy and Helen are both great hosts - very friendly and welcoming! The art tuition from Andy was superb - I really learnt a lot and came away with a great art portfolio in such a short time. Helen's cooking was amazing! Highly recommended.

We love painting holidays...

We love painting. We love drawing. We love art, and we love it even more when people come back from our painting holidays with masterpieces to be proud of.

Absorb a view. Discover different mediums. Cover a canvas with your interpretation of eccentric street life, world-class architecture, captivating historical sites and spectacular landscapes. Wherever you set up your easel, you’ll be compelled to explore your creative side.

We’ve searched the globe to curate an eclectic palette of painting holidays that are as magnificent as the people that go on them and the artists who teach them.

Artists who inspire. Artists with a story to tell. Artists with a passion to share.

Explore new ways of painting and shake up your style. Learn how to work the whole canvas, explore colour, smear, daub and wield your palate knife. From watercolour to acrylics. Oils to pencil. Pastels to paint making.

Whether you are a novice unsteady with your brush or an experienced painter looking to explore new ways of painting. Come back excited about your painting future.

Go learn to paint. Sit, scrutinise and appreciate the view for longer than it takes to snap a photo. This is what a holiday should feel like.

What our guests say...

It’s not the done thing to boast. So you won’t find us crowing about how amazing our painting tutors are. Nor how good our service is, or the fact that the accommodation is wonderfully comfortable and characterful, the food delicious, the wine free flowing and the locations inspiring. Mum’s the word. We prefer to let our guests do the talking.

Very enriching experience in a wonderful setting and run by an experienced artist who loves to share his knowledge. Donna and Simon are a great team and a source of inspiration. 5 stars M Rekab, Ireland: Painting weekend, Andalucia Spain

I had a wonderful holiday with Sally and David in Lodeves. Their ease and friendliness made for a relaxing time and left me feeling refreshed. David is a gifted teacher; I enjoyed the inspiring course and made a lot of progress, more than I thought I would. Sally is a wonderful cook! A Bhatt, UK: Painting holiday in France
