Get inspired by the natural wonders of the Creuse on this unforgettable 6 night painting holiday that will unleash the full artistic potential within you; whether you’re drawn to water, lush mountains, medieval architecture, or interesting faces, you'll find an eclectic mix of things to paint.
Escape to the ‘valley of the painters’ on this 6 night painting holiday in France, tucked away near in the department of the Creuse in central France.
You will find your charming country home accommodation, and base for this painting holiday, in the region which has inspired painters for decades. Take some time out for yourself in the peaceful, lush countryside which you can explore and bring to life on paper.
During this extraordinary painting holiday, your tutor Janet will be with you daily to help you find your own talents and capabilities in art. Janet maintains a calm and relaxed environment to be creative with a varitey of mediums. When the week is finished, you will leave with refined skills and techniques that will take your craft to the next level.
Your hosts, Clare and Peter, will supply you with comfort and plenty of activities for you to try your hand at in your free time; everything from boules (to get in the French spirit), to archery, to a dip in the onsite swimming pool.
Your French painting home will be in one of two lovely houses, with a room that best suits your needs. You’ll feel right at home in the cosy kitchen, lounging in the den, or going for a fresh morning dip ready for a revitalizing day of discovery and creating.
Located right on the doorstep of St-Sebastien, you can stroll to town, get lost in the woods, or for the more tamed, stick to a meandering marked hiking trail and head into the surrounding countryside.
Please not that oils are not used during this week because of the drying time.
