Immerse yourself in creativity

At some stage you will have thought about booking yourself onto a painting course or holiday. Kevin Scully has some tips and advice that will help you to decide what to pack and what you should take into consideration before you book
A painting holiday abroad will enable you to immerse yourself in your favourite pastime, meet like-minded people and make new friends, plus you’ll experience a different culture, food and architecture in a warm climate

Painting holidays and courses offer an opportunity to immerse yourself in creativity in the company of like-minded people. Courses vary in duration from a few days to even a few months; some will be studio based, others will be a mixture of studio work and painting en plein air. If you are new to painting it would be wise to start with a short course.

Holiday basics

Some holidays are based at the provider’s property, which usually means most meals are taken there. You should enquire whether trips to different painting locations are included in the price – if not, will you be expected to pay extra for these. Also, en-suite bathrooms are often allocated on a first come, first served basis.

About The Artist

Welcome to our February issue with our extra 16-page guide to art courses and holidays for 2018, including Kevin Scully's article on what to take into consideration and what to pack to make the most of the opportunities offered by a structured course away from home. Our artists also offer plenty of ideas and inspiration for painting a variety of subjects in a broad range of media, including pastel pencil animals, a horse in watercolour, trees and an orchard in pastels, mixed-media collages inspired by old buildings, a photorealist self-portrait in oils and more. In addition, Hazel Soan starts her new three-part series on light and shade in watercolour by explaining how to train your eye to see and interpret tone, Judi Whitton demonstrates how to mix and exploit a wide range of lively greys in your watercolour paintings, while Paul Gadenne shows why and how acrylics can be the key to achieving greater spontaneity in your work. Be inspired and enjoy trying some new ideas under the guidance of our fantastic team of contributing artists!
