Alps Holiday – Tutor’s Notes:
About the holiday -
This will be our third year at the fabulous mountain location at Les Carroz. The food is always incredible, all dietary concerns are catered for. Our hosts are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. From the stunning mountain views to the huge workroom to the hot tub... I can recommend this holiday without any reservations whatsoever. It is a fabulous location with unique painting opportunities. I have worked hard with the owners to make sure that as much as possible is included in the price, there will be no hidden charges, road tolls, entrance fees etc, meaning you can just relax and enjoy yourself! All your food and drinks are included. A day off is included to allow you to shop, explore and eat out.
Chalet Facilities -
Chalet Calluna and Chalet Erica are just 50m apart. Erica contains a large workroom for our demonstrations and for evening work should you wish to continue after we are back from location. Calluna is where meals are served and where the hot tub is located. These facilities are open to all guests, whichever chalet your bedroom happens to be in.
Flights must be booked separately, we will fly to Geneva. For local students: as there is no direct flight from Stansted, and Gatwick is a major trek we will be travelling from Luton, and I suggest you book the same flight as me, (you will be notified of it in due course). Group transport or car sharing can be arranged closer to the date. The flights should cost you around £100 to £130 each. Students not local to me will need to arrange their own flights/travel but advice can be given if you need it.
There is 5 days tuition during the holiday. Each of these days will start with a demonstration in the workroom, of techniques suited to the particular location/subject of the day. On 3 days we will be painting outdoors, chairs and packed lunch provided. On the other days we will work in and around the workroom at Chalet Erica. As well as some arranged workshops you can sit on the patio and paint the mountain valley opposite if you wish. I will also be on hand in the evenings to discuss your work and give you any help and advice you need. Please note that whilst every effort has been made to plan some stunning locations I cannot control the weather… if we are unlucky on any particular day then tuition will take place in the workroom, and the schedule may be rearranged so we have the best chance of visiting all the locations. Generally speaking the weather has exceeded our hopes, with hot sunny days and only one or two rainy days.
Art Materials -
Well in advance of the holiday I will email you a list of recommended art materials. If you are a complete beginner and have nothing I can put together a starter kit which you will be able to purchase from me in due course if you should wish.
