We have 5 different Holiday Types to suit all tastes in a painting holiday.
Location Based Holidays
Location based holidays are where we paint out on location. Painting spots
can usually be found within 100 yards of the car park. There is always a wet
weather room or studio available at the hotel, if the weather is bad.
Location based holidays are generally 4-5 days painting.
Studio Based Holidays
Studio based courses are all based in the studio and are generally 3 days.
Some work on step-by-step projects, others work on a theme/subject,
whilst others work based purely on a medium.
Sketching & Painting Holidays (S&P)
Sketching on location with full paintings done in the studio.
Some walking involved which will be easy going. We will walk no more than
a few hundred yards in one go and mainly on flat even ground.
No special walking shoes are required.
Sketching & Walking Holidays (S&W)
Sketching & Walking holidays allows us to reach parts of the countryside that
location based holidays cannot reach generally speaking. Walks are easy to
moderate mainly on the flat or down hill with some uphill involved. Some
uneven ground will be encountered and good walking shoes are recommended.
The walks are more of a stroll than a route march and each section will be
around a mile and we will cover around 3-4 miles by the end of the day,
so it is only suitable for those with good mobility.
Simply Sketch & Paint (SS&P)
Simply Sketch & Paint allows more emphasis on simply painting than
on tuition. There is no tutor on these holidays but there will be a
local walking guide and/or an Alpha Rep. It will combine all Holiday
Types above with a couple of days Sketching & Walking (Walks are
optional), a day or two Sketching & Painting, some time for full sized
paintings out on location, around the hotel or back in the studio.
Also, we can offer 6 days painting for the normal price of 4.
