Discover how to paint the world as it is in our secret spaces around Borrowdale, Derwent Water, by learning how to paint art outside.
Art Painting Holidays/Courses in the Lake District in Keswick with Cumbrian Artist Colin Halliday. Treat yourself to a relaxed and enjoyable artistic adventure, with individual tuition for both budding and accomplished artists. Join us and be inspired. We travel to different locations every day.
We include demonstrations, one-to-one tuition, critique sessions and an informal end-of-week exhibition. Alternatively, you may prefer to operate independently of our team, just enjoying the social aspects of the holiday.
Our team of professional painters are friendly, patient and encouraging in helping you develop, whatever your experience. They will teach throughout the day, offering both group and individual tuition. Increasingly, partners and friends come to enjoy the locations and share in the sociable evenings.
‘The personal touch – we are the only company offering this type of experience in the Lakes’.

Hi Chris and Liz
Thanks so much for the art course, it is supremely well organised and wonderfully enjoyable. What a break from work! Painting superb locations with Colin to give us the confidence just to dive in and paint! Others in the same position which also give security mentally, Lovely company, you, Colin, Liz and the other participants, Great accommodation, Fabulous food. I really appreciated your attention to detail and the willingness to go the extra mile, your teams' dedication and hard work and faultless organisation.
Just Brilliant. If I can, I'll come again! Cheers, Alex
