Painting in Italy

7 Nights and 8 Days Singles Painting Vacations in Sicily

Sicily is an island of contrasts -from fertile volcanic land, ancient and arid ruins to baroque style architecture – it offers beautiful compositions for painters. Its stunning location in the middle of the Mediterranean means it is blessed with good weather, ideal for painting outside. Our experienced painting tutors will guide you to the best painting spots. We have carefully designed our painting holidays in Italy as a complete artistic journey from start to finish. For our painting holidays in Sicily, we are based at an authentic yet modern villa located on a private estate in the south-east of the island.
