Painting Holidays and Workshops for 2018

Painting Holidays in France 

Greg will be hosting two painting holidays in South West France this year. The atmosphere will be relaxed and supportive, with courses suitable for both beginners and more established artists.

During 5 full days of painting, in either oil or acrylic, we will explore all the area has to offer in terms of inspirational landscape alongside fully tutored studio sessions with lots of one-to-one support.  


24th-30th June

Palettes De Gascogne: SOLD OUT
6th-13th July


Equipment to bring:

The Cass Art Stores in the UK or the Cass Art on-line store has everything you’ll need for these trips. Amazon is a good source for all art materials too and Rosemary Brushes provide a high quality option.

1. Easels are provided

2. Bring a sketchbook and maybe a notepad and pencils

3. Stretched canvas is good, but canvas or MDF boards and acrylic/oil paper are a more portable options. Bring a minimum of 6 surfaces in a size you feel comfortable with.
