Ann runs painting holidays in several stunning locations in the UK and Europe. Most mornings are spent working in the studio with Ann, focusing on local flora and seasonal fruits followed by a relaxed buffet lunch.  Afternoons can be spent working independently in the studio, swimming in the pool, exploring the local countryside or simply just relaxing, after all it is a holiday. In the evening enjoy a delicious meal at the hotel or at characterful, local restaurants (transport provided).

A full or half day excursion will be arranged during the week to local places of interest (charged at cost).
