On this magnificent painting trip, group and tutor will stay at a very lovely 220 M2 Tuscan house near Monte San Savino where guests will have a SINGLE ROOM unless coming as a couple or with a non painter. This house is peaceful and surrounded by nature, in the heart of Tuscany. Immediate surroundings hold olive trees and rolling hills. Guests will enjoy comfortable rooms, a furnished patio and a swimming pool with massage water jets! In Florence, group and tutor will spend the last 2 nights at a central and modern Florentino B&B.

Where will we paint / draw?

Tutoring with talented tutor Marie Remond will be at our rented villa in Tuscany and at a neighboring village + 2 days in Florence. After the morning’s guidelines by tutor, guests will have plenty of time to relax, explore and paint the impeccably restored farmhouse, its gardens, its views and its swimming pool.


Please note that although you do not need to be an athlete to join this painting holiday, you will need to be able to walk without strain at a normal no-rush pace anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes at a time to get to places in Florence. Not much walking at the villa.

About the tutor:

Marie Remond, tutor.

Marie Remond, tutor.

Marie Remond is the tutor on this art holiday in Tuscany. Not only is Marie a talented people-lover, she is also funny and up-lifting. She makes her students feel at ease as early as the first painting session, and encourages them to apply easy techniques. Confirmed artists that are somewhat artistically set in their ways will enjoy great freedom to pursue painting Tuscany the way they had planned to, all the while picking up a few helpful techniques.

What will I learn?

First and foremost, as days go by, you will learn self confidence as an artist. You (like the other guests) have your own style which is to be praised for its individuality and originality or simplicity. Your tutor will never compare anyone’s painting styles. You will be encouraged to develop your own approach to painting (or drawing). The tutor will be there to help you develop your artistic individuality and also to help you with new techniques without deterring your artistic uniqueness. Tutoring will always be inspiring, full of positive vibes, and in a relaxed environment.

Whichever medium you have chosen, you will learn or improve your compositions, value, colors (mixing), brushwork and perspectives in fun and easy ways. If you are doing watercolors you will learn or improve all of the above, plus how to do different washes (glazed, flat, graded, wet-on-wet) and also dry brush and splattering. You will also learn different color-lifting effects, and much more. If you’d like to read more about tutoring, you can visit our TUTORING SECTION.

Which medium can I use?

This is a multi-media art vacation where painting guests can choose from watercolors, any drawing medium, hard pastels, gouache, acrylics or oils.

Will there be excursions?

Yes! We will visit and paint at beautiful near-by village Monte San Savino, and will get 2 full days in majestic Florence.

Where will we have our meals?

There will be 2 restaurant meals in the Tuscany countryside and restaurant meals only for the 2 days in FLORENCE. Trattorias are carefully selected for quality, service and reasonable pricing.
