Review – 2015

At their beautiful 17th-century cottage – only 10 miles from the edges of Dartmoor national park – tutors Peter Davies and Janet Brady offer art holidays for beginners, improvers, and experienced artists.

The versatile tutors work with watercolour, oil, acrylic, drawing, life drawing or mixed media and tailor breaks to suit guests’ tastes. Small group sizes mean there is plenty of one-to-one tuition, while the holiday options available are:

the weekender (Friday evening to Sunday afternoon)

or a five-day course (Sunday evening to Friday afternoon).

Though courses often start with work in the tutors’ studio and nearby locations it can and often does, extend to scenic spots around the area.

Brambles Art Retreat also runs art breaks abroad to Venice, Greece, Morocco, and India. • Five-day UK course from £625, weekender from £320, both full board. 01566 784359
