The South West Wales Artist Retreat is a painting holiday conceived by two of our veteran painters who have been coming to Glynhir once a year for over thirty years. Our eldest member is 93. This group is a self-run group with no tutor or group leader.
The members have opportunities each day during breakfast, lunch and dinner to discuss their work and inspire each other. All meals are included in the accommodation price. It really is a lovely way to ‘get away’ and spend time focussing on art with like-minded people. For this group, all the accommodation is provided within the mansion with rooms with en-suite. Members have full use of our art studio and our grounds are a limitless source of creative seclusion.
The dates for 2018 are 29th June – 8th July.
Price: £650 (10 full days) £65.00 per as many days that will suit you. If you would like to reserve a place for the activity please complete the booking form below.
