Watercolor painting holidays have been popular ever since the medium became popular during the 18th century. Holidays can be found all over the UK, offering the opportunity to perfect your skills, and enjoy the best scenery the UK has. Cost is a factor when choosing the perfect holiday, as is the level of skill expected; if you’re strictly a beginner or amateur, you may want a holiday with like-minded artists. Other factors are the size of the group and the student to teacher ratio; a smaller group obviously provides more opportunities for more personalized instruction. Most holidays provide en-suite accommodation, with some or all meals included, and you also want to make sure there is some free time built into the itinerary. Whether in Cornwall, the Scottish Highlands or North Wales, a painting holiday is a great way to improve your skills and make new friends.
