Painting for the Petrified Abruzzo

Painting for the Petrified in Abruzzo, Italy

If you’ve always wanted to learn to paint and draw, but didn’t have the confidence, then this is the holiday for you!

There’s simply no better place to learn about painting than Abruzzo. From the mountainous peaks of the Majella National Park to the undulating hills that meet the picturesque waters of Lake Bomba and the Adriatic coast, this Italian region is a painter’s delight. Here you can relax and explore your creative side in this majestic landscape while basking in the revitalising Abruzzese sunshine.

Frui’s enthusiastic, down-to-earth and accomplished tuition makes this so much more than simply a painting holiday. Suitable for complete novices, everyone on this holiday will be of an equal standard, so there’s no need to worry about your ability. Our tutors will also happily adapt the course to your individual needs, as it’s important to us that you feel comfortable, confident and passionate about your painting. One thing’s for sure, within only a few days your drawing and painting skills will improve considerably.

And as we’re in ’the garden of Italy’ it’s only right that we should sample all the local delicacies including truffles, olive oils, honeys, wines and cured meats, as well as dine at Abruzzo’s most celebrated restaurants and agriturismos!

With expert tuition, a relaxed, open, atmosphere and plenty of inspiration to get the creative juices flowing, this holiday will teach you the basic techniques of painting and drawing as well as give you the chance to become fully immersed in the Italian way of life.

And, as always with Frui, our attentive guides and tutors will organise everything for you and cater for your every need. Everything from shopping trips, personal guides, excursions, restaurants, accommodation and transfers - it's like having your very own butler with you on holiday! You won't need to worry about a thing, allowing you to focus on having fun, relaxing and being creative.

“We dine on fresh antipasto of rabbit, cheese and honey beneath the Roccascalegna castle. There's no one else around and the stars are bright above us.”
