Painting & Walking Holidays

A passion for painting & walking

What could be more meditative than capturing a landscape in glorious watercolour or exploring areas of outstanding natural beauty on foot?

Follow rivers and coastlines, paint mountains and charming waterfront towns, and lose yourself in the culture and atmosphere of your chosen destination. Make lasting memories on one of our painting and walking holidays.

We travel to different locations on most days. We offer a range of demonstrations, special one-to-one tuition, reviews and even an informal end-of-week exhibition. The ramblers among us will enjoy engaging guided walks and, where required, we take air-conditioned coaches or public buses at both the start and finish of the walks.

Our tutors are all professional painters, who are friendly, patient and encouraging in helping you develop, whatever your skill level. They teach throughout the day and there is some free time, although you may take as many breaks as you like. For the walks, we use experienced local leaders as it’s important our routes are designed by people who live locally.

How will my holiday work?

We travel to different locations on most days. We offer a range of demonstrations, special one-to-one tuition, reviews and even an informal end-of-week exhibition. The ramblers among us will enjoy engaging guided walks and, where required, we take air-conditioned coaches or public buses at both the start and finish of the walks.

Who will our tutors be?

Our tutors are all professional painters, who are friendly, patient and encouraging in helping you develop, whatever your skill level. They teach throughout the day and there is some free time, although you may take as many breaks as you like. For the walks, we use experienced local leaders as it’s important our routes are designed by people who live locally.

How large are the groups?

The average is nine, but this can vary although they have very little impact on the locals and their environment.

How do I choose the right holiday for me?

Our tutors offer different styles, and the regions provide very different landscapes. Where walking is concerned, your choice will be based on the regions you are interested in, your ideal terrain and dates available.

Who are the local support staff?

Our tour managers or local guides are with our groups every day and tutors are left to ­concentrate on teaching.

What equipment will I need?

We supply chairs and boards in almost all locations, and walkers will need suitable footwear, a small day sack for food and water, and waterproofs.

A full equipment list will be sent prior to departure.

What if it rains?

We ensure arrangements are in place for us to paint indoors if the weather is bad.

How fit do I need to be?

Some locations are hilly or involve boat trips, and some walking routes are more strenuous than others, but you can contact us for details.

What can my non-painting partner do while I am occupied?

Increasingly, partners and friends choose to come to enjoy the locations and share in the sociable evenings.
