Our painting holidays are plein-air watercolor / watercolour workshops, but also multi art media. You can choose your favourite medium, including watercolor, drawing, acrylics, oils or hard pastels.
Our painting trips are also customized vacations / bespoke holidays for groups of painters or painting groups with a teacher. Contact us for quotes.
In order to tailor the cost of your painting trip, our guests pay their different providers directly. This lowers holiday costs considerably, as we do not take a margin or commission on your flights, accommodation, food or local transportation. We help and advise our guests every step of the way from the time of your booking online to the last day of your holiday. Please refer to your destination in the top menu for cost estimates.
A typical day on a plein-air painting workshop in Italy and France
Painting/drawing generally starts at 9:30 after a short 15 minutes explanations of the morning's work in perspective. At an easy pace, you and your small group will settle in a chosen spot, sketch, paint, and enjoy the dream setting of the scenery. Your art tutor will help you as you go along, answer questions, give tips and guidance, all the while giving you immense freedom to create your art work.
Lunch is taken together around noon or 12:30. Schedule is flexible but will always include a minimum of 5 hours of tutoring per day. You may choose to go your own way for lunch if you'd like to.
Back to painting after lunch, usually at a different spot with an equally picturesque view, until about 4:30 or 5 pm. At the end of each afternoon, we'll head to a café and take a well-deserved coffee break where teacher and group will talk (in a positive and constructive manner) about the different works done.
Dinner is taken as a group, but you can choose to go your own way, if you wish to.
Remember that although painting holiday workshops are artfully complete, meaning that most of your day will be spent painting (or drawing if that is your medium), you will also be sightseeing, as our painting is plein-air (outside), and our tutors will guide you on exciting excursions.
What you will learn:
Throughout the week, you will learn new techniques and be rewarded with personal artistic improvement and self-confidence as an artist.
In fun and easy ways, you will learn or improve:
The basics of sketching, (quick drawing based on observation)
How to paint and sketch outdoors
Study value (lights and darks)
Colours / colors

What's it like going on a painting holiday?
Do you ever feel like people around you don't fully measure your artistic capacity or interest? Like it's a secondary matter? Well, when you're on a painting vacation (literally from the word 'vacate'), you are for a few days in an art cocoon, where everyone speaks your 'language'; the language of creation, of art, with the very same enchantment you have when seeing beauty, shapes, colours. Your group members are your art peeps, and you will most likely boost them the same way they will boost you. People on art holidays often ask themselves, "why hadn't I traveled like this before?". Some art travellers are afraid of joining groups alone, but they quickly realise that others are also going on art holidays by themselves, soon to make friends with like-minded people with whom they keep in contact, and who sometimes end up going on other painting holidays together!
Join before it is too late! Choose any one of our exciting painting destinations:Venice where artistic inspiration lives and breathes, the gorgeous island Capri, eternal Rome (unavailable in 2019), Sorrento (Amalfi-Pompeii painting trip), unbelievable Cinque Terre, and sumptuous Nice (South of France).
