Art Holiday 2022

I'm delighted to be offering an art holiday again this year. This is a 5-night stay with four full days of tutoring and evening activities. The dates are: Tuesday 26th to Sunday 31st July 2022

The full-board cost is £1,036 and the cost for a non-painting guest is £350. To attend the full art holiday without any accommodation is £686. to attend only the daytime part of the holiday (10-3) with no food supplied is £350

Accommodation will be guesthouse style, as guests will be hosted in my house. Each day there will be full tuition and evening activities to extend what we have been doing in the daytime. The food has over the years become one of the highlights of the holiday and will include a BBQ on the final Saturday. Each day there will be a continental style breakfast, a packed lunch, afternoon tea and then a full evening meal. there will be some materials available to use and borrow though it will be expected that each person will bring most of their own kit. I have a small shop in my studio. 

Payment is made by a non-refundable deposit through this website and then a balance by bank transfer before the start date. All money (minus a small fee charged by the website to take your initial payment) will be refunded if for any reason I cannot run the holiday. If the holiday goes ahead as planned no refunds can be made after a month before the start date. 

All activities will be in line with Government COVID guidelines and fully refundable if we go into a lockdown. Please sign up to my newsletter to keep up to date with what's happening.

"I can certainly recommend Art Holidays Devon run by Debs Last. I felt it was good value for money and felt that Debs makes every effort to make it so and works really hard. She is a very experienced art tutor.
