Tresco Painting Holiday Isles of Scilly
For 2017, we are offering four painting holidays on Tresco Island, the Scillies in association with Tresco Estate, hosted by artists who know the islands intimately and have exhibited their work there many times. Respected coastal painter Paul Lewin will be running the first course in May, followed by a late May date with Amanda Hoskin; while in June and September artist Maggie O’Brien will be tutoring the group. Imogen Bone teaches are last date on Tresco for this year, which will take place in late September.
The painting holidays are run over four days and included in the price of £1,225 per person are four days of painting tuition, five nights’ dinner, bed and breakfast at the New Inn, return flights from Land’s End (or some other airports for a small supplementary fee) plus all boat and road connections on the islands and unlimited access to the Flying Boat Spa and famous Abbey Gardens. Painting materials included. We have a maximum of ten people per course which enables every participant to have plenty of one to one time with the experienced artist tutor.

All painting materials, different types of paper and brushes are provided by the art school for the water based mixed media we teach with. These courses offer a broader and free approach to landscape painting with waterbased paints used alongside other mixed media. All levels of previous experience welcome but a little experience with painting outdoors would be helpful. If you would like to discuss the painting materials we supply please ring or email the art school using the below details.
For those travelling without partners there is an additional 'single supplement' fee of £125 per person. Additional non-particpant guests staying in the same room as a participant will be charged for the holiday less the painting course fee and therefore the total for non-participants is £845 which includes all of the above listed benefits bar the painting course itself.
Due to the nature of the terrain on the island this holiday course is not suitable for anyone who is unable to walk for at least a mile, often over uneven surfaces. Attendees are also required to get on and off small boats and climb steep granite quayside steps. It is also important to be agile enough to be happily seated on the ground at times.
