Turkish Painting Holidays are different
and a picture paints a thousand words…

Thank you all for these lovely shots of your Turkish Painting Holiday!

Small Groups

The art groups are small so the tuition can be tailored to your individual needs, we cater for all levels and all mediums, and there is no need to worry about bringing all your own materials, they are all included in the cost of the holiday too!

The location is unique and the ambience truly special. Come alone and make new friends, or bring your partner or a friend, non-painters are very welcome, call us now for more details, we are always delighted to chat.
