Painting Holidays in Lippiano Italy

A Painting Holiday in Italy

We are dedicated to encouraging and facilitating individual students’ creativity within a safe, friendly and inspiring environment. We welcome people who are travelling on their own, as well as those in a couple. The accommodation is excellent with many rooms having their own en-suite. The wonderful nature of this type of holiday is that many people find friendships which often continue beyond the course.

Each student will be gently encouraged to express themselves with the materials and environment provided; to develop their own painting language rather than to strive for a prescribed traditional standard. There are 2 studios that are open from morning the night. If students want to continue working into the evening under their own steam this is a definite possibility.
