"Thank you so much for the lovely painting holiday with Charles at Lake Garda. I truly enjoyed myself from the first to the last minutes, since everything was perfectly organized and Charles proved to be a sensitive Tutor! So I´ll be surely Painting In Italy again. The other participants have also been very kind and patient with me, so I was able to improve my listening comprehension etc. " - Ulrike July 2016

“ I found it impossible to find fault with anything. The room was comfortable with a stunning view which greeted us every morning as we opened the shutters. The town was beautiful, and we even swam in the lake! On top of all that, our tutor Charles was totally clued up on how to help me to paint water. After a few noble efforts, finally I produced something on the last day which actually looks like flowing water!! Thank you Charles - I have learnt a great deal which I shall employ in future paintings of watery scenes. I shall be back”! – Carol June 2016

“We had a lovely holiday with smooth transfers at either end to and from the Airport. The hotel was friendly, clean and my room absolutely lovely. Breakfast was amazing in the Hotel.. Torri was perfect as it was small, quiet, full of lovely shops and not too touristy. It was a wonderful week Sheila and brilliantly organised and Charles was a very good tutor who was very encouraging and helpful to all our different artistic abilities. Many many thanks”. – Claire July 2016
