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

BEST HOLIDAY I HAVE BEEN ON

"Although it was my first time in italy i found it to be very satisfying in all aspects of the holiday there was a good balance between painting and free time and i believe it was the best holiday i have been on and i will be going back. most enjoyable experience could not be bettered". - Venice May 2015 

FIONA WAS A SUPERB ARTIST

"A very BIG thank you for all your hard work in organising such a wonderful painting holiday in Venice. I did appreciate all the advice and information you sent beforehand which was so useful. Fiona was a superb artist and so helpful both with group and individual input on location and at the hotel.     She has a lovely warm and inspiring personality.     I didn't know Venice was so delightful with the various venues we were taken to and members of the group were lovely in sharing their knowledge alongside Fiona's input.  The restaurants were great and very welcoming and the food delicious ( a few pounds have sadly gone on as a result!). There were so many good fish dishes to chose from.  I hope to join you again in the future on another of your holidays and have been recommending you to painting friends". - Christine D.

VENICE A DREAM CITY

"My second painting holiday and I had a wonderful time.  Venice is a dream city and it was like being in a film.  I enjoyed the varied restaurants and locations with the opportunity to visiting some fineart galleries and churches.  The opera was magical.  Fiona, as always, was an inspiration and this holiday has encouraged me to join a regular painting class".  Venice May 2015

GREAT TUTOR

"Excellent holiday, good company, great tutor". Venice May 2015
