In this section read more about how a painting holiday works and what to expect.

Are you in the area doing other things but would like to book a day of painting?

Perhaps you are involved in event planning? I could plan a creative event for you.


This is something new for 2014 and I am delighted to now have three courses up and running … to rave reviews … via the Udemy site. So if you can’t get to a painting class either where you live, or by coming on a painting holiday, this could be for you. All three courses now have over 1,000 students each and I am planning my fourth.


Not quite sure about something and you want to chat to me about any of the courses then phone me in France on 00 33 (0)4 99 57 16 63 or you can drop me an e mail at emailme@painting-holidays-france.com  what ever is easier for you.

NEW Painting Venue, ‘Maison Quarante’, set in the heart of the village.

There is a five page feature about me, my work and how I arrived here in France. It also has more pictures this stunning property where I host some of the painting holidays. Fancy staying there next year?
