The Cotswolds is a painter's heaven!

Join award-winning artist and instructor Roger Dale Brown in spring time to capture the magnificent beauty of the English countryside and charming historic Cotswold villages... painting en plein air in your own unique style.

Each day we'll feed our creative souls. There will be painting sessions in scenic Cotswold locations. Roger will provide demonstrations and offer individual personal instruction designed to improve your painting skills and expand your art experience. Along with your paintings, you'll take home many treasured memories of a wonderful & fun-filled Cotswold painting holiday and creative adventure.

 

We'll paint landscapes in the beautiful English countryside filled with rolling green hills... we'll paint in picturesque villages with golden limestone buildings, including Broadway, the former home of artist John Singer Sargent... we'll visit and paint in one of England's most stunning gardens, Hidcote Manor Garden, a National Trust garden surrounded by fields, pastures, and thatched roof houses... and we'll set up our easels at additional scenic Cotswold locations personally-selected by Roger.

We'll be based in a historic Cotswold market town filled with ambiance and enchanted character. We'll stay six nights in a charming boutique hotel part of the Cotswold Inns & Hotels luxury hotels collection. 

The tour includes many traditional English extras -- including a welcome reception with Gloucestershire hors d'oeuvres and French wines... a gala farewell dinner with traditional Gloucestershire cuisine... happy hour sessions in the hotel garden reviewing the day's creative works.  

There will be personal free time for individual painting... to take leisure walks... explore village boutiques, antique shops and art galleries... patronize classic English pubs... rub shoulders with locals... relax in the hotel garden.

Optional before breakfast group pleasure walks are organized for travelers who want some morning exercise before starting their vacation day.
