Brighten your holidays with a painting course and new experiences in inspiring locations.

Create your next masterpiece - on holiday.

During a painting holiday workshop you will expand your artistic techniques and help your creativity bloom! You have a wide selection of techniques and subjects to choose from- classics like oil and portrait are on offer as well as sketchbook and urban sketching courses. No matter whether you’re looking for watercolor classes or want to experiment with acrylics, pastels or pencils: Our teachers, coaches and tutors are some of the best in their trade - professionals that will introduce you to new motives and styles, help you be daring and bold, to learn as you go and return home with new skills and one-of-a-kind souvenirs.

Painting holidays with a small group of like-minded friends

It’s probably the best part of a creative break: sharing laughter, feedback and a glass of wine after a day of capturing your destination’s beautiful surroundings.
You might ask yourself: who are these classmates and companions at a painting workshop? First of all, painting holiday guests are creative souls. You will meet novices and beginners as well as experienced artists. The mix of starters and pros makes a wonderful group and they’re all equally welcome in the studios of our painting holiday locations. You are going to meet people of all ages and nationalities, singles, couples and groups. Some are full time artists, others just escaping their nine to five routine.

The most beautiful locations for your art break and painting classes!

Learn to paint the beautiful landscapes and beaches of Spain, sketch and paint en plein air in the South of France, find the perfect light on the Greek islands or treat yourself to the all-time classic: a painting holiday in Tuscany / Italy, interpreting the Italian street life and wonderful architecture. Wherever you sit down with your sketchbook - painting holidays will free your creative side and enrich your inner artist alongside other passionate painters.
