A painting holiday in Grasmere, Lake District.

A studio waiting for artists to explore.

Grasmere will look different in June, gone are the Daffodils but replaced with Foxgloves and fields full of Wild Flowers. The Lambs will be a little bit chubbier, but the Herdwick's will still be here, gently grazing near the windows of the Studio. The leaves on the trees will be pretty shades of Green with long Summer shadows cast below. And if you're lucky you will see a deer or Red Squirrel from the window.

Grasmere really is the most perfect place to be based for a painting holiday. Avillage full of famous Poets and Artists and a view to capture around every corner. The only problem is you won't want to leave!
 Painting at the Glenthorne in a  wonderfully relaxing place, with views from every window and the fells from the open doorway.

 The view from the studio with Silver How and Loughrigg fells and  Grasmere Lake just hidden below.

The Glenthorne nestled quietly but only a few minutes from the bustle of Grasmere Village

An Aladdin's cave for the artist, with a new colour or sketchbook just for you.

I have two courses with a few places left all with single en suite rooms or a double.
Monday  21st to 24th June promises warm sunshine for watercolours full of colourful flowers and reflected Lakeland scenery.
Monday 12th to 15th October will be just in time for the Autumn glow.
 Both of the courses are for beginners or Intermediates painting in a small group with plenty of one to one tuition and demonstrations along the way. Price £395.00
