Join Claire and float on a cloud on a fun-filled painting week

Ready for the off! Claire’s students set up in the Watermill courtyard.

Our enthusiastic and inspiring English watercolour tutor Claire Warner ran a highly successful painting course at the Watermill last year with a dozen or so students enjoying the delights of rural Tuscany. And we are looking forward to another successful course when she joins us next September. More details of next year’s course are below.

Here are comments from some of the guests on Claire’s course here last year:

“I had a wonderful holiday at the Watermill, one that I will never forget! I am still floating on a cloud.”

“Inspiration for our artistic endeavours was certainly not in short supply – from the fantastic grounds of the villa with hidden treasures such as a river and water mill and its own intriguing architecture to the day trips we went on, each providing the perfect balance between nature, history and the everyday hustle and bustle of Tuscan life. The instruction from Claire, our tutor, was spot on and covered everything from technique to practical tips on how to set up and work outside, something I’d never previously done. I particularly enjoyed the review of the group’s work each evening, where we could share experiences and get feedback on our efforts. All in all, it was a great experience and one that I can’t wait to repeat again.”

Time for a coffee on market day

“It was probably one of my favourite holidays. The accommodation was superb in such a beautiful location and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The group was mixed in terms of ages and abilities, some people came alone and some as pairs, but the mixture was great and we had a lot of fun in amongst the tuition. Claire organised for us to go out to a variety of wonderful places to sketch and paint and you were comfortable taking things at your own pace, in your own way. I really like Claire’s relaxed approach, so you don’t ever feel under pressure!”

The Convento del Carmine, one of our guests’ favourite painting locations

Claire will be with us again for her course in watercolours (and acrylics and oils) from Saturday 14 September to Saturday 21 September 2019. Although it’s early days, we already have five people booked into this course, so now is the time to make your reservation, especially as you can still take advantage of our Early Bird discount offer: £75 off Claire’s inspiring week if you book before the end of this year. We’d love you to join us.
