COAST & COTSWOLDS, CREATIVE WATERCOLOUR RETREATS
Stop, relax, escape into the subtle energy you share with nature. Empty your mind and notice shape, space and timeless elements. With fluid translucence, simple watercolour brush-marks can vibrantly recreate your impressions and expressions. Walk and paint alongside Stella Shaw, who will share with you her Subtle Landscape inspirations and experience, by stunning coast or lyrical Cotswold countryside. Our friendly retreats are available every season, lasting between two and seven days. You can also travel further afield to enjoy our annual seven day international painting retreat, which takes place at varying times and locations. If you are based either in London or Bristol, you can attend our weekly classes or one-to-one tutorials. We are currently finalising our new schedule. If you would like more details of our Coast & Cotswold retreats coming up, please get in touch using the button below. We'll also be happy to add your name to our email list, if you click the request at the foot of this page.
"It's very therapeutic. One forgets everything when painting!"

"I have loved Stella's gentle tuition, giving us freedom to choose our own subjects."
"Trying different styles gets you out of your comfort zone and able to be more bold, which in turn gives you more confidence."
