Art Retreat

A week of painting, and relaxation in the stunning region of the Dordogne, France.

Village Life -  Come live the week in a French Village, slow down, enjoy leisurely 2 hour lunches, dine in cafes or buy your food at the local butcher, bakery and weekly market. 

The Domain - Begin each day's adventure from your newly renovated 19th century accommodation comfortably that can accommodate up to 10 people -see floor plan.

Everyone's Welcome - Painters of all levels are encouraged to join our resident artist, including beginners.

Get Inspired - You'll experience a painter’s paradise: rolling hills, winding rivers, Chateaux, medieval towns and stunning markets overflowing with local produce. 

What You'll Learn -  Beginner painters will learn, depending on their selected retreat, all there is to know about working with either oil, acrylics and/or water-colours, including brushes, paints and mediums, colour theory, techniques, composition, and developing observation skills.

 

Intermediate students can choose to enhance their skills with more challenging subject matter and are encouraged to explore their own imagery as they see fit.  Every participant receives plenty of one-on-one guidance.

Explore - Known as the land of 1000 castles, the Dordogne boast much to be discovered. From local attractions to traditional customs and an impassioned culinary heritage, the region is an inspired place for your art holiday.
