Our painting holidays 2020
Why not join us for a painting holiday in the South of France? All our artists holidays are for artists wanting to learn or improve their skills. Our groups are mix of solo travellers as well as friends and couples. To ensure individual attention, we keep the painting groups to 6-8 people. (Non painting partners are welcome in addition).
We have a choice of 3 day, 5 day or 7 day painting holidays in 2020 & 5 or 7 day holidays in 2021 so if you want an intensive week in the south of France improving your painting skills or furthermore only have time for a short break we have a holiday on offer for you.
If you are looking for something a little more special in 2020 we also offer a luxury 3 day weekend from Fri 16th – Mon 19th Oct 2020 at a chateau with a spa centre.
Want to organise a larger group painting holiday? Please get in touch, we can put a bespoke package together specifically for you, including additional tutors if necessary.

A Typical Day on our painting holidays
- After breakfast each morning, we’ll set off to our nearby painting location.
- Simon will help you set up, suggesting the best composition and techniques for that particular scene, often with a quick demonstration.
- Chairs, easels and boards plus all materials are supplied on our art holidays but feel free to bring your favourite brushes and paints.
- We’ll paint till around 12.30pm when we break for lunch
- In the afternoon, you will have a choice of either continuing painting at the day’s location. On the other hand you can return to your accommodation or our studio to finish off your morning’s painting.
- Dinner will be served at a nearby restaurant or in our courtyard garden in Pouzolles.
