“I  loved painting there & Phil Hobbs' tuition was excellent, a really nice group of people & great fun. I really think that Sheila organises these holidays very well. This is my third with another booked next year”. October 2017


WE WOULD LIKE TO DO IT AGAIN

"Just wanted to say how very much we enjoyed our holiday, it was just great and i wanted it to go on!!  Phil was a really super teacher and i think both Michael and i made progress! to the point that we would very much like to do another workshop with Phil to continue with his approach, so, as he is teaching the same class in Venice next year we would like to do it again!! " - Lynne Roche Venice September 2015 

VENICE WAS FABULOUS

"Venice was fabulous, so nice to visit it again. Really enjoyed Phil's tutoring, so knowledgeable, patient & I learnt a lot. He has such a nice way about him & nothing was too much trouble. His anecdotes were funny too. Can't praise him enough & what a brilliant painter.  As for the opera....fantastic, great seats, the soprano was outstanding & the buffet was really good too. 

So seriously thinking of going again next year, just need to check the dates.

Thank you Sheila as you can tell I really enjoyed the whole experience". Lynne Blore - Venice 2015

We have been featuring relaxed and supportive one-week painting holidays for over 10 years in sublime Italian locations and none come more iconic than Venice out of season when the hordes and the heat have departed and the city once again becomes the perfect artist’s palette.  At the start of the course guests will be collected from the airport and whisked by private water taxi to the tranquil Lido and the four-star base the Hotel Biasutti, just a 15-minute vaporetta ride from St Mark’s.  The holiday is perfect for non-painting friends/partners as there is so much to see and do in Venice.  It is also very suitable for single people travelling alone.    Our decision to stay in a hotel on The Lido has been welcomed by all of our guests.  After leaving the frantic hordes of tourists behind in Venice what better way to end the day than with a glass of prosecco on the lovely veranda of The Biasutti hotel or a walk along the long stretch of beach looking out over the Adriatic sea before dinner.   The Lido Boulevard has interesting shops with high end fashion, shoes, jewellery and Murano glass and also many terraced bars, ice cream parlours and restaurants.  Venice itself, just a 15 minute vaporetta ride away, has a multitude of things to do and see.  Guests will be met at Marco Polo airport and taken by private water taxi to The Lido - an exciting start to a memorable week.
