Visit the beautiful region of Galloway in Scotland's hidden corner and enjoy an all-inclusive art holiday hosted by one of Scotland's best known artists.
Each stimulating and varied course is specifically tailored to every individual, from the absolute beginner to the more experienced artist. You will have plenty of free time between classes to yourself to explore and see the local sites.
With different venues available that will suit a variety of budgets, you will benefit from a relaxing holiday surrounded by the inspiring landscape and coastal views for which Galloway is famous.
Whether you are on your own, in a couple, or with a group, you will enjoy the company of others with a maximum of ten people per week to allow as much individual attention as you wish.
Breaks can be fully bespoke upon request and courses are available all year round. In the winter, immerse yourself in still life painting, while throughout the spring, summer and autumn, landscape classes are run outdoors (weather permitting). In each case, you will gather information through thumbnail sketches and drawings before turning your sketches into working charcoal, chalk and pastel drawings and developing them by learning how to use and apply tone and colour. You will use all of the skills and sketches you have developed to create your very own finished painting and personal interpretation of your stay, on canvas, to take away with you at the end of your holiday.
If you are interested in attending with your art group, fully customised holidays at special discounted rates are available.
