The Good News Is...

Art holidays... content by negotiation to suit your wishes and your dreams.

* individual or small group guided tours to out of the way places,
* art appreciation excursions to Rome and Naples,
* classes in watercolour, acrylic, and oil.

The good news is that, in view of the "economic crisis" and general pessimism about travel, I am holding my prices so they will be the same in 2012 as they were in 2009 (dates updated on the earlier post). Priced to suit your budget, from B&B accommodation to picturesque hotel, rustic or elegant, you choose the level of accommodation and the restaurants from the wide range available.

The bad news is that, due to other projects I am involved in, I am reducing the number of time slots offered for painting classes.

Contact me for early June, early August, or September, October and November dates (dates are always by negotiation to suit your travel arrangements). Pick-up at the airport (Rome FCO, Rome Ciampino or Naples) can be arranged.

There will be no residential classes before June this year.

Happy New Year, and happy painting!
