Painting holiday

Won't break the bank, Splash out
Age range
35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65 and above

A week's painting holiday in Normandy in northern France; a mix of studio work and painting in the open air under the guidance of an experienced artist and teacher.

Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner, Le Choisel, in Normandy, France, is an ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​inspiring location for a painting holiday where you can learn new techniques in painting or drawing, try working in a new medium, and enjoy being among fellow artists as you develop your artistic abilities.

I am your tutor, Angela Birchall. I am an experienced artist and teacher who was taught by a Royal Academician before going on to complete my first degree specialising in teaching art and design and a masters degree in adult education. I work in oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels, pencil and charcoal, and am passionate about teaching people to draw with what I call my "debunking the myth 'I can't draw'!" programme.

I lead classes in painting and drawing, work with you as you sketch and paint on location, and facilitate discussions linking the day’s activities with the work of artists from the past, especially the French Impressionists.

If you can't make this date, other holiday dates have been planned for later in the year, so get in touch and I can tell you all about them.
