How early do I have to book? Most courses fill up quickly and it is advisable to book as early as possible. Do enquire about late availability, as there may be some places left nearer the commencing date.
Can I bring a non-painting partner? Most but not all courses do accept non-painting partners. They get a discount and are entitled to participate in all activities, like field trips, wine tasting and meals that take place besides the painting. Please send an enquiry to our e-mail address:
Do I need to have any painting experience? The courses are suitable both for beginners and for accomplished painters - and all levels in between!
Do I need to bring my own equipment? You are encouraged to bring your own equipment, unless stated differently. In any case, all materials can be provided, if you can not bring it yourself.
How many students are typically on a course? Typically, there are around 10 students on each course.
Is the course price fully inclusive? It depends on the course. You will usually have to provide lunch. There will be an occasion for a grocery shopping experience or opportunities to eat out. All field trips and ground transportation are included in the course price.
I have difficulty in walking long distances. Will this be a problem? Italian cities are walking cities, so we advise that you are prepared to walk long distances and upstairs and also carry some equipment. However, everything is organized around the participants' needs, so you won't have to suffer for your art!
Do I need to rent a car? All ground transportation is provided and you can take independent afternoon trips with public transportation, however if you prefer maximum freedom and independence you might consider renting a car.
How do I get to the location of the workshop? For each workshop at arrival and departure, there is a pickup service from the train station or airport in Firenze. Who arrives by car, can receive detailed instructions.
I have special dietary needs. Can this be accommodated? Yes, our chef can provide vegetarian, vegan or gluten and lactose free diet, if you tell us in advance.
