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 have been altered to make every effort to keep you and your tutors safe. Please do look at the short video below which we hope will give you some idea of what to expect. There is a little message for you after the music stops!

“I did so enjoy myself! Thank you for your warm welcome and lovely food. Our tutor was a wonderful teacher”.
“A big thank you for a wonderful holiday. Our tutor was so kind and helpful and I felt I was really beginning to improve. I hope to see you next year if not before.”
“Just a few lines to thank you for the great holiday again this year! We had inspiring tutors and wonderful days out painting. Brilliant meals and good company at a very homely hotel. I can’t wait to book from next year’s brochure.”
“Yet again i’ve had a fantastic holiday. You made us feel so welcome and fed us so well. Big hug.”
“Thank you so much for a most enjoyable art holiday. You did everything you possibly could to ensure we had everything we needed – so greatly appreciated.”
“Just to say how much I enjoyed my stay again. Two good courses, fun and instructive. Looking forward to next time!”
“I can’t remember when I felt so pampered and well looked after. I had never been away without my husband before and was really worried about whether I would enjoy the holiday but you put me at ease from the first day. I learned a lot from the tutor and having seen the programme for next year I will be booking up again soon.”
“Thank you so much for a lovely holiday. You made me feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The teaching was excellent as was the food. It was such a treat to be looked after so well.”
“Thanks very much for another excellent holiday! The list of enjoyments goes on – John’s cooking, inspiring and patient tuition, ferrying us everywhere, Magnums in the sunny courtyard garden – I’m counting the days until my September holiday.”
“This was my tenth holiday with you and I have enjoyed each one more than the last. Painting on site then returning to the studio to paint while looking forward to yet another lovely dinner – perfect. Thank you yet again.”
