Our plein-air painting workshops in Italy and France include:

  • 5 full days of plein-air painting / drawing media.

  • 20 to 25 hours of tutoring in a relaxed environment with a talented tutor.

  • Art materials adapted to your medium (paints, pencils, paper, brushes, eraser/rubber, water cup, tape) 

  • Board and stool provided

  • Painting on exciting excursions

  • Airport pick-up

Accommodation is a rental (condo/flat or house) shared participants and tutor. It is paid later.    Help with your travel arrangements.

Which media?

Our painting holidays are en plein-air (outside) watercolor / watercolour workshops, but also multi art media. You can choose  your favourite medium, including watercolor, drawing, acrylics, hard pastels.

What's a typical day like on our painting workshops 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 'en plein-air' (outside), and our tutors will guide you on exciting excursions.

Our painting trips are also customized vacations / bespoke holidays for groups of painters or painting groups with a teacher. Contact us for quotes.

Are you tempted by a painting trip in Europe? AZENART takes you on stunning art painting holidays / vacations in the heart of Europe's most inspirational locations, where your artistic expression can flourish amidst awe-inspiring surroundings. Beauty is our business! We'll take you closest to the perfect painting site settings where you'll be able to capture the magnificence!

Whether you are a complete beginner or a confirmed artist on our painting breaks (where you can also draw), you'll fit in perfectly to join our small painting groups in any one of our gorgeous destinations. Our art vacations include fantastic painting / drawing sites, a lovely tutor who is able to teach beginners, or more advanced artists, wonderful excursions,  all art materials and equipment provided during the holiday. Plus, let's not forget fun artistic togetherness, an important part of painting trips.

You've heard of painting holidays or art vacations before, you might even have been on one already. Now is the time to experience one of our holidays! We aim to please. Our concept is simple, paint in renown star destinations like Venice, Capri, Nice, Rome... We want our customers to get the most out of their vacation and to come home having their own special works of art to show for the fantastic time they've had.

You've never painted or haven't painted in years? No stress. Perfect beginners or "rusty" artists leave our beautiful European destinations with art work they can later on frame and be proud of. 

You don't paint but only draw or do watercolour pencils? Fantastic! At Azenart, you are perfectly free to choose your medium. We do however make specific recommendations for oil paints, as these are not easily compatible with a painting holiday due to long drying, and hence makes your work difficult to carry around, unless you bring your own carrying case. You are free to choose oils if that is your absolute must medium.

You and your partner or friend are both interested in visiting one of our destinations, but only one of you paints or draws? No problem. You can both come, the non-painting partner goes free, no Azenart fee, and he or she is free to join excursions, outings and meals (food and transportation not included).   

When considering going on one of our painting trips, please know that some of our dates are set closely from one holiday to the next in order for our customers to enjoy 2 holidays in a row. 

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)
