Art Holidays in Dorset

Welcome to Art Holidays in Dorset

Dozens of specially created Location & Studio based Art Holidays with Professional Tutors

Welcome to Art Holidays in Dorset. We are ideally located just 5 minutes walk from Boscombe seafront and within 5 minutes drive of Bournemouth Town Centre.  If you’re looking for a friendly welcome in comfortable surroundings then Art Holidays in Dorset is a good choice.

We hope that you are all keeping safe and would like to give you some information about alterations to course dates.  The 2020 brochure and pictures on this web page are, as you would expect, pre-Covid-19.  This means that most of the dates on the 2020 brochure have been rescheduled.  Please look on our Hot News page for details of rescheduled courses and availability on those courses.

However some courses remain unaltered: Painting the Colours of Autumn with Jonathan Newey  12 – 15 October 2020 &  All Winter Warmers from 24 October 2020 to 5 December 2020 inclusive.

Our studio and other areas are being altered to make every effort to keep our guests and tutors safe. We will post pictures to give you some idea of what to expect from the “New Normal” at Art Holidays in Dorset.  We look forward very much to seeing you.

At Art Holidays in Dorset there is a house-party atmosphere where your art, enjoyment and comfort are of prime importance and nothing is too much trouble to ensure that you enjoy your Art Holiday in Dorset to the full. All abilities are welcome.
