Couple Enjoying and Painting in Italy

Our painting classes in Italy offer a unique blend of expert teaching and free time where you can be inspired by Italy’s dramatic colourful landscape. Whether you are painting for the first time or are more experienced, you will relish the experience of working from life, “en plein air” in the company of like minded people. It’s the perfect art holiday to spend your day to display your creativity while exploring the local regions.

  • Recreate the dramatic landscape of Tuscany, Venice and Sicily using watercolours, pastels and charcoal.
  • Sketch the medieval towers of San Gimignano, the spires of Florence, the markets of Syracuse, or simply capture the Italian culture and way of life.
  • Present your work to your fellow artists, while indulging in good conversation and authentic Italian food and wine.
  • Pefect for singles so you will return home with a revitalised passion for painting and drawing, not to mention make new friends.
