What is the travel status in Scotland?
Good news about traveling to Scotland this summer-fully vaccinated travelers can now enter the country without having to test while in Scotland. Just bring your CDC card with you and fill in a passenger locator form 48 hours before you arrive. We’ll send you a link to that when it’s time to travel. If you are not vaccinated you can still visit Scotland. If you need tests on other days or to return to your country, we will facilitate these for you.

Why isn't there an instructor on some workshops?
Before 2017, we were only running uninstructed retreats. We are now introducing instructed workshops led by master artists. Our instructors are award-winning and at the top of their game. If you enjoy a structured class, then choose our instructed workshops. Spots fill quickly – so reserve your spot immediately.
However, if the idea of step-by-step or advanced instruction is not for you, but you are eager to visit and paint a region famed for its natural beauty, charming villages, vineyards and other interesting painting subjects, then jump on board for an uninstructed workshop! You’ll enjoy a balanced program of relaxation and painting while discovering the inspiration that comes from traveling and painting with fellow artists. Suitable for all skill levels, from fearless beginners to advanced artists. Evenings are reserved for demos, discussions and mentoring.
