Painting locations will always only be a short walk from the car park unless all guests agree to a longer walk for a better composition. We will always take into consideration the mobility of all guests when on location.
Some artists will provide demonstrations in the evening and in most hotels guests are welcome to use the studio outside normal course times.
If you are unable to come on the course once you have paid the full amount, we are unable to refund any money paid. It may be possible to transfer you to another course, if space permits but this cannot be guaranteed and there will be a small charge for this. If you are unable to come on the course, please advise us as soon as possible in writing or by email, in order that we can try to fill your place(s), otherwise the full amount will be due, if within the 8 week period.

To the best of our knowledge all the tutors and hotels have public liability insurance. We also have our own public liability insurance. In the event of a holiday being cut short or cancelled for whatever reason, our liability is limited to no more than the total paid for the holiday, except in the instance of injury or death, which is in accordance with the laws governing Public Liability in which case any monies due to you would be covered under the public liability insurance of Alpha Painting Holidays, the tutor or the hotel according to liability and would be at the discretion of the insurance company. It is the responsibility of each guest to arrange their own travel insurance and we strongly recommend that you take this out.
All our terms and conditions are subject to and governed by English Law.
Unless otherwise stated it is expected that you will bring your own art materials on holidays in the UK. A separate list is supplied with each course as each course is different. It may be possible that we can supply you with paints/paper on the course at an extra cost should you run out but we cannot make any guarantee of this and sometimes tutors have materials to sell but this depends on the course. Please check when booking. Art materials are included on all foreign holidays, except brushes.
Many people have their own easels, boards and foldable chairs and we advise that you bring these if you have them but if you do not or you are travelling by train/coach/plane we can supply lightweight easels/folding chairs and boards for you, in which case please indicate this on the booking form.
