What you need to bring:

Portable chairs
Drawing boards
Water bottles
White spirit

Easels

As for clothing the days are usually warm in the summer time, but it can rain, sometimes for a day or two at a time. So, we recommend a lightweight waterproof coat and perhaps an umbrella to protect your work. The evenings might be a little cooler, so warm pullovers or tops are recommended. Walking shoes are also highly recommended.

We are very happy to welcome non-participating partners: husbands, wives, partners, friends of people who come on one of our painting holiday courses. We can suggest a wide range of activities to make their stay memorable. Click through to learn more… .
