Learn to paint in Moroccan desert

In the middle of the stony desert, accessible only by rugged sandy tracks, lies a peaceful oasis, a tranquil haven of date palms, fossil-laden crags and warm Berber hospitality. The days are warm and relaxing, the nights full of stars. This is an ideal place for artists (or indeed writers) of all abilities to immerse themselves in their own creative project with or without constructive input. The area has minimal distractions and is very conducive to exploring/developing your creativity with complete focus. A beginners' intensive 'learn to sketch and paint' course runs simultaneously so whichever option you choose, you will be assured likeminded company in the evenings. Complete novices (a ...Read more >

Painting holiday in Scottish Highlands

The far Northwest is a land few visit but none forget. Prehistoric, weathered peaks jut into the clouds above pristine beaches and rocky shorelines where gulls wheel, seals laze and otters gambol. Home to small communities of hardy crofters and fishermen, the landscape is vast and sparsely inhabited; one can be in the hills all day without meeting a single soul although if you are lucky you'll sea red deer and perhaps an eagle. For painters the area is Heaven and it's a real challenge to do it justice in a short stay. In this itinerary I have tried to cover the most iconic places around the area of Assynt. To reach the most fabulous, hidden corners a little walking is required; thus this ...Read more >

Scotland painting holiday, the North Coast 500

When the North Coast 500 'route' was defined and promoted a few years ago, the incredible landscapes of the far north of Scotland began to stir the imaginations of people who had never previously realised what a wealth of beauty we have been quietly enjoying up here! Towering mountains, thundering waterfalls and mile upon mile of deserted beaches; otters, puffins, red deer, golden eagles; romantic castles and ruined croft houses with a rich cultural story to tell; you do not need to leave these shores to find Paradise for your next holiday. Instead of rushing around the 'route' in record time as some people seem to do, our aim is to savour it, to seek out the quiet corners and immerse ...Read more >

La Gomera painting holiday in Canary Islands

From cool, misty forests, twisty mountain roads and weird volcanic plugs to sparkling black beaches, the tiny Atlantic speck of La Gomera offers a unique sketching holiday experience. A world biosphere reserve, this peaceful and mostly rural island differs from its Canary neighbours in many ways yet it shares warm winter sunshine, good food and wine, a warm welcome for visitors and truly jaw-dropping scenery.
