The painting holidays are run over four days and included are four days of painting tuition, five nights’ dinner, bed and breakfast at the New Inn, plus 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.
Please be aware that you will need to book your own travel to and from the islands.
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.
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.
