Courses 2019

The alternative art vacations that we offer are geared towards helping you get the maximum enjoyment from your painting holidays. These unique illustration workshops will involve you in experimentation with a variety of media to help loosen you up and allow you to discover the medium(s) that best suit your personal need of expression. The illustration techniques demonstrated during the workshops will help participants do away with artists’ block, and permit them to enjoy freely their painting vacation. We emphasize the use of a sketchbook on the sightseeing excursions in order to use this material to further develop your art making. The program is arranged in such a way, so that you receive at least 4 hours of instruction every day, in studio and outdoor painting. This way, there will be time to take in the sights, relax and enjoy! Of course, participants who wish to follow their own agenda are free to do so. No part of the holiday is compulsory.
