Varvara Neiman – Painting Holiday in Italy

10 – 17 September 2022

Painting holiday at The Watermill
This relaxing, inspiring and fun-filled painting course with tutor Varvara Neiman is designed to help both experienced painters and beginners to release their talent and most of all, enjoy their painting. You can bring water based oils, pastels, acrylics or watercolours.

For centuries artists have drawn their inspiration from the Tuscan landscape and you couldn’t find a better place than the watermill to enjoy your painting holiday and improve your skills. The course runs from Saturday to Saturday. We usually spend Sunday painting in the Watermill gardens or beside the river, or in the light and airy Watermill studio, overlooking the gardens and mountains on one side and the river on the other. We will take you on painting trips to an ancient castle and village, to market day in a nearby walled Medieval town, to a secluded cloistered convent and to a thousand-year old hilltop village with craggy mountain views…….. And there’s a whole day (non-painting) excursion by train to the walled city of Lucca or to the fishing villages of the Cinque Terre.
