Why not benefit from professional tuition and enjoy personal care and attention from 'beginning to end' on one of our painting courses abroad?
We were absolutely delighted when David Bellamy and Jenny Keal invited us to arrange and organise their Painting Holiday in this beautiful part of the Austrian Tyrol - without question an area of outstanding natural beauty.
So we're really excited to be teaming up with David and Jenny, two of the UK's leading art tutors, to offer you this eight day painting holiday staying in Pertisau overlooking Lake Achensee. Our accommodation has been arranged at The four star Hotel Poste am See on a half board (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast) basis where you are invited to join David and Jenny painting in the media of your choice as we visit their carefully chosen painting locations.
David & Jenny will organise a structured daily painting format which will include demonstrations, group tuition and one to one guidance as appropriate. Individual tuition can be given in any media however, demonstrations by David & Jenny will be in Watercolour & Pastel respectively.
There will be an element of walking involved but generally speaking this need not be more than perhaps a few hundred yards or so from cable car or coach and to go further is entirely optional - David will be venturing further afield, on foot, with sketchbook in hand and those wishing to join him will be very welcome to do so.
Jenny will not be walking far so nobody will be left on their own and David will circulate to ensure tuition is spread evenly throughout the group. David and Jenny will research and set our precise itinerary nearer the time - their intention is to go high by cable car once or twice (weather permitting), where there are tourist facilities including comfortable cafes with breathtaking panoramic views. It is also intended to incorpoarate a visit to a local castle and include a boat trip around Lake Achensee.
The Hotel Poste am See is situated lakeside with views across the water. The hotel offers stylish public rooms and a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere and facilities include swimming pool, wellness centre & Spa. The rooms are ensuite with balcony, TV, telephone & safe.
We are always close to cafe's for coffees, lunches and toilets during the painting day.
This really is a wonderful opportunity to benefit from David and Jenny's wealth of experience in a this beautiful region of Austria.
