Painting in Italy


Painting in Italy

Wanting to go on a creative holiday but nervous about travelling on your own? Painting in Italy has found the perfect formula for guests travelling on their own for the first time or for partners/friends who want to go on holiday together but do different activities.

The company has been featuring relaxed and supportive painting holidays for over 10 years in fabled cities such as Venice and Florence as well as sublime locations in the Umbrian and Tuscany countryside. Painting in Italy was included in The Times’ top 100 holidays for 2015. In 2016 it will feature a brand new holiday with six nights based at Hotel Gardesana, a 4-star lakeside hotel in traffic-free Torri del Benaco on Lake Garda, and one night at 4-star Grand Hotel in Verona. There will be the option to attend a performance of Carmen or Aida at the famous Roman amphitheatre ‘Verona Arena’ on the last evening in Verona.

The painting tutors are renowned multiple award-winning Adrian Wiszniewski of the ‘The New Glasgow Boys School’ and Charles Mitchel, previously Dean of the Faculty of Arts at Cumbria University. Both are successful artists with years of teaching experience. These tutors will lead students of all levels of ability in improving their painting and drawing skills in their media of choice.

The courses will run 18th-25th June and 22nd-29th August. The holiday costs £1599 (no single supplement and therefore perfect for solo travellers) and includes airport transfers, 7 nights hotel accommodation, 6 dinners with wine and painting tuition. Cooking lessons are available to non-painting partners or other activities can be arranged such as bike hire. Help with travel arrangements can also be provided.
