Visit one of England's most unspoilt regions.
Just 12 places are available on this very special NON-RESIDENTIAL botanical painting holiday.

We shall draw and paint stone fruit such as plums and gages from local orchards. Two half day excursions will be included as will all lunches and a welcome dinner. Accommodation to suit most budgets can be arranged.

2015 Dates: Umbria Painting Holiday
Week 1 Thursday 21 May - Thursday 28th May
Week 2 Fri 29th May - Fri 5th June 2015

Our 2014 trip was again a huge success and fully booked very early. Remember each week is independent but you can also book a two week holiday (ideal for long haul travellers) at a small discount. The subject matter covered each week will be different, as will be the excursion. Full information on the Umbrian Holiday page and prices will be published soon. Booking opens in September.
