Q. Do I have to be an experienced in drawing to get the most out of the holiday?
A. No. Lots or little experience isn't a problem. We can help! The most interesting groups are those with mixed ability and those where the participants are from different backgrounds.
Q. Is it hard-core drawing every day?
A. Yes or no. You can do as much or as little as you like... you decide... no pressure. Every day that drawing happens we will have an informal tutorial in the evening or following morning. You set the pace and we'll support.
Q. I've decided to come. What do I do next?
A. We will need to send us a deposit of £150 to secure your place for European destinations or £600 for Bali and Thailand. The balance doesn't need to be paid until 30 days before we travel.
Q. How much money should I bring?
A. I'd say between 70 to 80 euros for Spain. £250 for Thailand, £200 for Bali and £140 for other destinations.
Q. What art materials should I bring?
A. It depends on what you're interested in and where we go. We will discuss this in detail prior to departure.
Q. I don't speak Spanish, German or Thai etc., is this a problem?
A. Well you should be ashamed of yourself! :) No it's not a problem.
Q. What should I bring with me?
A. Comfortable light shoes for walking. A hat and suntan lotion for the hot destinations, a sarong and an open mind. We can supply a detailed list tailored for each destination before departure.
Q. I'm Vegan, Will I find things to eat?
A. Yes, no problem. In Spain we cook and eat together at the village house. Our destinations have restaurants and cafes that cater for a broad range of dietary choices. In traditional Asian cuisine there is no dairy, so as long as you avoid meat and fish you're fine. Tofu and tempe are very popular locally.
Q. What are the sleeping arrangements?
A. All prices are based on sharing a twin en-suite room. If you want your own room let me know and I'll organise it, although there will be a small supplement.
Q. Will I need travel insurance?
A. Yes you must get insured before you travel. It is a condition of booking. I can recommend a company that is very reasonable on request.
Q. Will I need vaccinations for Bali or Thailand?
A. Yes. You're advised to have Hep A. typhoid and tetanus. We do not travel to any location where malaria is prevalent.
