Holidayof the month PAINTING IN ITALY

Nola Tegal from Australia painting in Umbria

Sheila de Vries has been running painting holidays in Italy since 2004, building up a loyal following with more than 85 per cent of her guests returning each year. Such success can be attributed to Sheila’s great attention to detail – getting to know exactly what guests want from the holiday before they arrive; selecting high quality hotels that provide a luxurious experience and excellent food; a team of highly experienced tutors, including Diana Ali, mentor in the BBC Great Painting Challenge, painter, writer and public speaker, Fiona Graham-Mackay, and popular artists and authors, Christopher Forsey and Joe Dowden; stunning locations; and Sheila’s ability to bring together a group of likeminded people in a stimulating, yet relaxed atmosphere. She is on hand at all of the holidays, ensuring everything runs smoothly.
