Lea in Venice

Come join Lea in Fife, Scotland and create some watercolour magic looking over the Forth river towards Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital.

Sunday 27th May to Saturday 2nd June 2018

With 5 full days of painting delightful scenery under Lea’s instruction.

Lea specialises in watercolour, the magic of which excites him again and again.  He is in great demand as a tutor both in the UK and Europe, teaching regularly at The Watermill in Posara, Italy for instance.

Lea welcomes beginners to advanced students. He says “It is your own personal style which defines you as an artist. I like to spot originality in a student and then work on their strengths and weaknesses to develop them further. It’s fantastic fun and so exciting to paint together each day in this way.”

Join us from just £795 to £925, with reduced rates for non-painting partners.

The workshop is limited to just 12 painters allowing Lea to give each student lots of personal attention during the week.  Places are not expected to remain available for long.

A deposit of £200 is required to secured your place on the workshop.  The balance will be requested by invoice approximately 8 weeks prior to the workshop commencing.

Note – Deposits are non-refundable (unless in the unlikely event the workshop is cancelled by us) and you are therefore recommended to put in place adequate holiday insurance to cover yourself for all eventualities.

6 Evening meals (3 course + tea/coffee) with a welcome drink and introduction before dinner on the first evening.  Lunch on Monday is also included.

5 full days painting with demonstrations and tuition from our artist, Lea Nixon, at a wonderful and different outdoor venue each day. All our chosen venues are within a short drive from the hotel.

Transport will be provided by minibus, although you are quite welcome to use your own transport during the week should you require the flexibility to stay longer at the venues or explore further.

Full assistance in directing you from your home to the venue and as much help before, and during, the holiday as needed. If travelling to the hotel from Edinburgh by train we will collect you from either Kinghorn Station (recommended) or Burntisland Station and take you to the hotel on arrivals day.

What is NOT included

Travel to/from the venue in Burntisland, Fife.  If flying, the closest airport is Edinburgh  International airport. Car hire is available at each of these airports. There are easy transport links from both Edinburgh airport and railway stations to our hotel.

Lunches are not included, except Monday.

Drinks, other than tea/coffee with the evening meal and the welcome drink.  Any drinks purchased in the hotel should either be paid for in cash or added to your room account and settled before checking out.

Art materials and equipment – you are required to bring your own.  If you require art supplies, for example paper, watercolour tubes and brushes, this can be arranged if ordered from us in advance.
For those flying in, we can arrange the loan of boards to tape your paper onto to avoid you having to transport these. Again, please let us know in advance.

Insurance – Adequate Holiday Travel Insurance is strongly recommended.

Finally, good weather is not guaranteed, although we are usually pretty lucky in this part of the country, so do be prepared for all weather conditions. Layering is the way to go.
