Established in 2008 and set in the beautiful and inspiring Tuscan and Umbrian countryside, Artist in Italy runs 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. 

2016 also sees the first of our new Express courses, spread over 4 days and with a chance to get straight down to some serious painting and leave with something you're really proud of! I am excited to see how these courses work out, and I would love you to be a part of it too.

My name is Julian, I have nearly 25 years experience teaching students of all ages and abilities, and I always strive to create a friendly and relaxed studio. Amanda works from our base in the UK and sorts out the administration, money and everything else you will need to know before you get here.

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 time you are here.

Above all, this is a real opportunity for developing artists to work in small groups alongside an experienced teacher.
