‘Friendly hosts, tranquil surroundings, great coffee and lunch – perfect for a day’s art’ November 2018
This area of France lends itself to peaceful days in the sun amongst the trees, lakes and meadows, dotted with authentic French villages and châteaux almost untouched by the modern world. It is an ideal location for a bit or reflection and observation and painting what you see and feel.
Our art courses are made all the more special by the traditional French style luxury accommodation that you will stay in, as well as great food and small group sizes. We as hosts really enjoy meeting and spending time with the people that attend our courses and gain great satisfaction from being able to create a homely, comfortable atmosphere that allows you to make new friends if you wish whilst being a little bit spoilt.
We work very closely with our professional art tutors to put together an artist retreat that helps all levels of artists develop and make progress whilst getting a taste of the beautiful countryside and culinary delights. As each retreat is limited to 10 art participants you will receive plenty of direct tuition and 1:1 support from our tutors.
From complete beginner to accomplished artist our ‘Blends and Blossoms’ art course is designed to enable you develop your own style and artistic talents through the inspiration of exploring real rural France. With the encouraging coaching of your art tutor Glyn you will develop your skills of effectively blending colours or shading for your subject matter and gain accomplishment in the use of perspective and observation through exploring spring time local village and countryside scenery of the Haute Vienne.
