Painting Holidays


Our week-long fully-catered painting holidays offer a range of drawing and painting activities designed to develop your skills, confidence and expertise.

Guests are taught in the calming and creative atmosphere of Préniac and on location in the many nearby historic towns and villages with their beautifully preserved medieval architecture, world heritage sites and vibrant markets.

Our painting holidays are suitable for artists of all levels, whether you are a complete beginner or an accomplished artist.

Our friendly and supportive tutors are highly qualified and experienced and will help you develop your own personal style.

On offer is a combination of structured teaching with demonstrations and one-to-one tuition, with both group and individual critiques.

Group sizes are limited to maximum of 15, so our tutors always have time to give you individual attention.
