Painting Course in Venice with Soraya French

Painting Courses Abroad >>

Venice has been seducing artists for centuries - it has a timeless quality which is both magical and unique. To paint in Venice is truly an unforgettable experience.

Under tutor Soraya French's expert guidance you are invited to join us painting in the media of your choice as we visit our carefully chosen painting locations. Soraya will organise a structured daily painting format which will include demonstrations, group tuition and one to one guidance as appropriate.  Demonstrations will be in Acrylic.
