Fabulous art holiday in Italy!

A spectacular artistic adventure you'll never forget on the remarkable Amalfi coast in the heart of the Mediterranean. 

Painting / drawing on extraordinary excursions to AMALFI, intriguing POMPEII and majestic CAPRI.

Paint (or draw, whatever you prefer) in a small group with a talented tutor in one of the most breathtaking places on the Mediterranean!

The Amalfi Coast art holiday group will stay at a villa near a village called Vico Equense. From there, the group and tutor will either paint at the villa, or on some days head for painting outings and extraordinary excursions. The tutor will teach and also guide the group throughout the week to some astonishing two-in-one sightseeing/painting sites. 

We take you within the depths of the incredible unearthed ancient city that is Pompeii, where you’ll discover its secrets, admire the bejeweled remnants of a surprising lifestyle, and be forever moved by the eternal silence of its inhabitants. On this one of a kind painting trip, you’ll also discover AMALFI, a jewel nested on the Amalfi Coast, where blue is bluer than blue. Your palette will overflow with colors, and painting/drawing takes a whole new dimension. On this art trip you also get to capture in color, the marvelous island of Capri.
