Painting Holidays

The English Riviera painting courses at the artist’s house focus on the sharing of skills and techniques so you can advance your artistic skills significantly at whatever level you are, beginner or advanced. Emma is an experienced teacher and has taught all levels from professionals at BMW to school children, to amateurs, to art societies and art professionals wishing to develope their practice.

There are either individual or small group residential and non residential courses.

As the group painting courses are small (maximum five people) individual tuition is given as much as you desire. 

Each course is adapted to the students.  

The experience of being at the home studio is also about being in a beautiful place on the English Riviera with the sea 5 minutes down the road, great healthy food, good company, fantastic locations, the moors, the rivers and a relaxed and friendly home environment and new for 2023 a unique mobile and studio and gallery to pint on location on the longer residential courses. 

We have two friendly loving dogs Bella and Cash, our springer labradors, and now have 2 adorable cats too…..

We are happy to cater for normal, vegan, gluten free and vegetarian diets, we love food and love to cook healthy nutritious food .

Dietary needs are discussed in advance.

Non Residential Art Courses

Non residential courses run all year-round with each season providing its own unique atmosphere. The longer summer courses tend to be outside based in good warmer weather meaning some courses make use of fantastic locations nearby or use of the studio if the weather is inclement.

Group painting sessions are £250 each for a 2 day course all materials and lunch provided.

(max 5 students)

Residential Art Courses

Individual residential courses run all year round, just contact to enquire about dates to suit and gift vouchers for a special present.

Residental group courses are based in April, May, July and August in 2023. We only have 4 courses available. They are small, unique, homely with a maximum 5 people.

We have two beautiful double luxury rooms with a private bathroom in a big period house 5 mins from the beach.

Prices include breakfast and lunch everyday, a welcome dinner and an artist last night dinner, allowing you to make use of the lovely local excellent restaurants and eateries on the English Riviera. 

Being on the English Riviera also allows you to enjoy the theatres, gardens, shops, castles, boat trips, galleries, markets, marinas, steam trains and places of interest from the moors to the sea, historic market towns, beauty spots, national hertiage sites, beach and riverwalks are all closeby to explore and inspire.
