All prices are per person and include full board, all drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, tuition and (aside from brushes) all art materials. Lunch and dinner are made by Amber, who was trained by her mother, and has cooked in various London restaurants.  It is recommended that you rent a car for your stay as it makes the transfer from the airport much quicker and is infinitely more economical than a taxi. If you would like to get the train then we will of course be more than happy to pick you up, our nearest station is Buonconvento. We can also organise for you to be picked up by a taxi, if you would like. 

While the whole ethos behind the Arniano Painting School is to provide a beautiful and relaxing place in which to be inspired and improve your artistic skills, the house is also a fantastic place for a simple relaxing holiday. We want guests to come and thoroughly enjoy themselves, which is why we have introduced a special offer for non-painting partners and friends of £1000, for those keen painters who have a partner or friend who is keen to come along and, while classes are happening, roam the endless lovely hills surrounding the house, go on explorations to nearby Pienza or Montalcino, or simply lounge by the pool and read a book. 

We can provide a list of recommended brushes to bring, and you are more than welcome to bring any of your own materials that you like working in. We will be mainly focusing on watercolours, oils and charcoal and pencil drawings. 

For those interested, there is a fantastic Ayurvedic masseuse available named Elena who can come to the house if there is enough interest (extra cost). 

Please note that all prices are in Pound Sterling, and that we cannot be liable for any bank fees that you may incur when paying your bill.
