Painting and photography holidays in Tuscany and Umbria
Set in the beautiful and inspiring Tuscan and Umbrian countryside, Artist in Italy is now in its 6th year of running painting and photography holidays for people who love art, Italy, good food and wine, just as we do.
Our week-long courses and 10 day art workshops are carefully designed for complete beginners with no previous experience, intermediate artists who would like to improve their skills and techniques, and practicing artists looking for a new challenge.
My name is Julian, I do all the teaching, and my wife Amanda does everything else. We have two children, a dog and two cats. I have 20 years experience teaching students of all ages and abilities, and I always strive to create a friendly and relaxed studio.
We offer a variety of custom-made art courses in order to build confidence and inspire you across a range of themes and disciplines. These unique courses also reflect the culture and history of the area where we live, and are interwoven with art-history excursions, providing inspiration, variety and interest throughout the week.
Above all, this is a real opportunity for developing artists to work in small groups alongside an experienced teacher.
To give you a true flavour of what we have to offer, have a quick look at this video...
