“The landscape course at Academy Studios Abroad was a life changing event. Studying and staying with Tod and Kate combines excellent, technically grounded - yet uplifting and inspirational - tutelage with a heady mixture of delightful food and delicious conversation in a truly beautiful environment. I learnt more about painting in oils in 10 days than I had in 7 years at 3 different art schools. I will be back for more!”

Landscape Course - topographical and paysage

You will note that our courses vary slightly from year to year, which allows our regular students to investigate different aspects of painting. We run a pure landscape course and our Generation Art course - for parents and children, every other year.

An opportunity to paint and draw plein air in our exquisite region, the course includes tutoring in both topographical and natural landscape. As with all our courses colour theory and preparation of drawing and painting media are explained and demonstrated in the studio. The days are spent with the tutor, in the open air in the various and beautiful sites our (usually) sunny region. This course may include an element of interior painting and still life. Painters such as Courbet, Cezanne and Van Gogh never tired of painting the local landscape.
