Courses In Devon

Sept 2021

I really enjoyed my five-day course last week. Thank you both for being so welcoming and positive. I learned a great deal from your tuition and the whole experience was a great confidence booster. I won’t forget your lovely cottage, dog, relaxing walks and company and one last mention, the wonderful food.

We have been hosting retreats  in other countries since 2005. We have taken painters to Japan, India, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Spain and France. We find unqiue accomodation and beautiful locations. We arrange special events, and explore the culture and history of each place. We enjoy the local cuisine and wine all while teaching and sharing our skills with our painters.

The course was very well organised. The quality of the presentation and demonstration videos was exceptional, very professional and easy to follow. The timing of the course was perfect in that it gave me a focus in these difficult times. I was running out of ideas of what to paint. As the course progressed I found that my artistic juices were flowing again!
