Painting in Mid Wales with David Bellamy
3 to 8 April 2022
5 days – £995.00
We are, at last, returning to our favourite venue again in 2022. The Caer Beris Manor Hotel is a firm favourite with us and with many of you who return year after year. We have so many exciting and inspirational subjects within easy reach of the hotel that we are truly spoilt for choice. During the week we will be out sketching and painting as much as possible. We will be looking for buildings, rivers, bridges and other subjects with the backdrop of the beautiful Welsh hills. Tuition will be available from David, with back up from Jenny, and there will be demonstrations of sketching and full watercolour paintings.
Springtime in the upper Wye Valley, as well as the surrounding landscape, is always a delight and should provide us with many fascinating subjects to paint. This hotel is our most popular venue with painting opportunities in the stunning riverside gardens as well as a wide variety of subjects in the surrounding countryside.
Accommodation and tuition will take place in the Caer Beris Manor Hotel, a beautiful historic building set in riverside parkland near Builth Wells and we will be using the ballroom as a painting studio.
The total cost of the course varies from £995 depending on the standard of the room, and includes tuition, accommodation, breakfast, tea or coffee, packed lunch and dinner daily. The increase in the price of accommodation is due to current and ongoing supply chain issues.
The price quoted is for a standard room, there are upgrades available as follows:
* Superior Double (9,10,11,18) – £10 per night (extra £50)
* Four Poster (5,6,8) – £20 per night (extra £100)
* Pet-charge of £10 per dog per night. (extra £50)
* Non-painting partners will be £780 (the same as Students minus tuition fee)
Covid 19 precautions – in the past we have used the conservatory for our painting studio but there is not enough space for people to socially distance so we have agreed to use the ballroom which is a much larger room with more tables available.
