"A brilliant introduction to watercolour painting which has long interested me but which I have not previously had the opportunity to try out. I was amazed how much I learned in just a few days. Wonderful hosts with a very caring atmosphere"

Inspired Painting Holidays and Art Workshops†has a programme of residential art courses each year with artist and experienced tutor Catherine Stott. Courses are run from Weston House, with teaching sessions at many outdoor locations and visitor attractions in the area, as well as the artistís studio and garden.

Inspired  Residential Art courses are fully catered with comfortable friendly accommodation in the artist’s house or close by, with individual attention from a professional artist and experienced tutor as part of a very small group (up to 6 students). Tuition in drawing, composition, painting techniques and outdoor working is included as appropriate and the small group format makes most courses suitable for beginners as well as experienced painters.

The spring and autumn programme  consists of 4 day or weekend courses on a variety of subjects inspired by our natural surroundings.

The Summer programme includes a series of 6-day Garden Painting courses approximately once a month from May onwards, which include outdoor working in local gardens.

We also offer special courses for small groups of Landscape Painters (beginners or experienced) who would like to learn more about drawing and painting our beautiful Devon and Exmoor landscapes. To arrange a course with dates and content arranged to suit your group, contact us directly at learn@westonhousedevon.co.uk

Day courses in drawing painting and mosaic are also available.

We are close to beautiful and varied countryside, including the picturesque woodland and river valleys of the Exe and Barle, the open moorland of Exmoor and the historic villages and dramatic coastline of Devon and Somerset. Well-known West Country gardens nearby include Marwood Hill, Hestercombe, Tapeley Park, Burrow Farm, Rosemoor, Bicton and East Lambrook Manor, and there are National Trust properties at Knightshayes, Dunster and Barrington Court.
