Lavaud Painting courses All inclusive , tuition, accommodation, meals

Our French Painting holidays are designed to offer painting tuition in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Set in the heart of the lush Perigord in the French countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Lavaud will inspire your imagination and free your mind, allowing you to create the paintings you have only ever dreamed about.

Tuition is provided by one of several local French artists, who all have teaching experience and are exhibiting artists, lessons will be in English. What ever your painting ability, our tutors can guide you towards a more fulfilling appreciation of how to reach you own objectives, in a friendly and unpressurised way.

5 Day Courses are held throughout the months of June and September, these months of the year having a more pleasant temperature for painting. The courses start Sunday pm and finish Friday midday after lunch. A minimum of 20 hours tuition with each course. The courses are open to all levels of ability as individual tuition throughout each daily session will enable you to develop your individual skills and artistic personality. Students need to provide their own equipment, advice and a list of appropriate materials needed will be given. Numbers are strictly limited with just 6 pupils on each course, of course non painting partners are very welcome.

Beginners will be given instruction in the basics of drawing and painting in the medium of their choice.

Experienced artists will have an opportunity to be inspired by a change of environment offering you fresh insights into your creativity.
