Bonjour, join us and artist Gregory Wellman at our beautiful country house, La Salle, in Southern France for a 7 night painting holiday. Luxury accommodation, delicious meals with wine, a friendly environment and like minded people. Non painters are welcome. We will visit villages nearby, passing through glorious landscapes ablaze with Sunflowers. We will be winetasting at the Chateau, visiting wonderful farmer's markets plus a fabulous flea market. Groups are of 5 -10 artists enabling plenty of individual tuition, painting on location and in the studio. Gregory demonstrates in acrylic but invites artists to bring their preferred medium. His teaching style is encouraging and confidence building while developing skills and technique. Pack your paints and brushes and let's go!
