Our courses suit all abilities from complete beginners to more experienced painters. Groups are of 4 – 10, which ensures students will get plenty of individual quality tuition. There will be lots of opportunity to work ‘en plein air’ either in the garden here at La Salle, in the lanes nearby St Puy with its beautiful old stone buildings, Chateau, Church and open views out towards the mountain range of the Pyrenees. There will also be sketching opportunities during visits to some of the many beautiful villages located nearby such as the walled village of St Orens Pouy Petit with its arched gateway and Chateau and magnificent views, the World Heritage site at La Romieu with its stone cats and Collegiale or the hilltop village of Laverdens.
