Painting Holidays and Courses in Italy & Spain

Our painting holidays in Italy and Spain offer a unique blend of expert teaching and free time where you can be inspired by dramatic colourful landscapes and the calming coasts of Amalfi. Whether you are painting for the first time or are more experienced, you will relish the experience of working from life, “en plein air” in the company of like minded people. If you’re looking to display your creativity whilst exploring stunning local regions, one of our two destinations would be the perfect holiday for you.

Under the expert tuition of our painting tutors, guests can capture the medieval towers of San Gimignano in Tuscany, the fishing boats of Marzamemi in Sicily or the vibrance of Seville; using watercolours, pastels and charcoal. At the end of the week, you’ll have the opportunity to present your work to your fellow artists, while indulging in good conversation and delicious local Italian food and wine. Our painting holidays are perfect for singles and groups alike, so you will return home with a revitalised passion for painting and drawing, not to mention having made new friends.
