I really enjoyed this holiday in Venice with the Azenart painting holiday company. Venice to start with was too beautiful for words (although Venicians aren’t always that friendly, but nevermind that). Everything was nice concerning the holiday itself. We got excellent, almost royal treatment as guests from start to finish (!), beginning with the superbe wooden taxi boat that came to pick-up our group from the airport! The hotel was nice, four stars as promised, with Venitian decor. the food was local and quite delicious. The overall best surprise was the tutoring with Alan, who was very careful to give everyone the attention they needed. There was one chap in the group who was quite an experienced artist who didn’t need that much tutoring, which was fine, and Alan was good at not being ‘smothering’. He was perfect with the beginners and intermediate (like myself) giving me an accurate balance between freedom and guidance.

I have to say that this was a beautiful week in Venice, with a fun group! I am a beginner at painting, and our tutor was the absolute best. Funny, too. Our group was small (6 people), food was local, delicious. The hotel was quiet at night. I hope to be able to do this again soon!!!

Quite pleased with this holiday from Azenart. Quality and commitment from beginning to end. Lovely. Our hotel was quite close to the places we were painting! And what places! Our tutor was attentive to us older folks who walked a little slowly, which was nice. We weren’t rushed at all. Getting to our painting spots was stressless and easy. You do need to be in sufficient shape to walk a little however, even if the pace is fairly slow. I was worried about the group’s average age but was surprised to see a mix of all ages (from about 30 years old to quite old, but fit). Our group only had 6 people in it, which was just right. Our tutor was patient and kind. We will miss her! I very much enjoyed our group painting and giggling and learned new techniques. Our lunches and dinners were great fun, and I found the free day a good idea in the end, as I thouroughly enjoyed visiting museums with two of the ladies from our group. To conclude, these painting holidays were a good find!

Excellent holiday!! Perfect painting spots and hotel. I recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from it all and just paint!
