A themed art program where guests are immersed in the history of art of the era. The food, music and arts of the time will be explored in the idyllic location of Chilston Park Hotel from 24th - 26th July.

This immersive experience will cover talks about the artists, colour theory, composition and art techniques, drawing and painting from the model, still life and landscape are all possible over the 2 day classes.

All levels of artist are welcomed from the beginner to the professional.

Choose to stay for a 2 night/3 day immersive art retreat in a traditional room and wake up to the characterful charm of this Grade I listed property set in 77 acres of parkland. Rooms are in the courtyard mews (upgrade/supplements available). At the end of each day relax with new friends and get a glass of Beaujolais in the Marble Lounge.

As part of the course you’ll start the day with a petit dejeuner that reflects the Parisian lifestyle of the era, in the original stables. For lunch and dinner, you will find a tempting new menu each day, with seasonal hot dishes, salads and a range of puddings. Locally sourced ingredients are used where possible including produce from Chilston Park itself.

There will also be plenty of contemporary art pieces, sculptures and historic art throughout the hotel and grounds to admire and take inspiration from during your stay.

By the end of the course, you will understand how to draw the essence of the human body with more freedom, confidence, accuracy and joy.
