|Painting and art holidays are a great opportunity to relax and either participate in painting or drawing elements of outstanding natural beauty, take in famous paintings within art galleries or even combining the two. The reasons why these kinds of holiday are popular are simple. Not only are painting and art holidays a relaxing experience, they also provide a chance to be creative if only for a short space of time.|
Specialist tour operators are able to book accommodation, flights and also provide transfers from the airport of the chosen destination. On arrival of the holiday location, proven artists will provide an itinerary of events which may include some time in a studio as well as time in the great outdoors, perhaps on assignment to paint a dramatic landscape for instance. The artist will be able to provide all necessary materials including brushes, pencils, easels and palettes, as well as knowledge and pointers about painting and drawing.
Groups are usually kept to minimum numbers, allowing for intimate, dedicated time with the art tutor. Painting and art holidays appeal to professional artists as well as amateurs and complete novices and so all skill ranges are usually well catered for. Durations of art and painting holidays vary from usually 1-day courses to 3 days to a week. There are a host of tour operators specialising in painting and art, many of whom have websites, where on-line booking is possible.
