Elaine Searle is a botanical artist and experienced instructor who has taught extensively in the UK and USA. By popular demand she has extended her 2013 Umbrian painting holiday to 10 days. A one-day excursion to medieval Fabriano to learn how to make paper is included. Previous visits have attracted students of all levels from the UK, USA, Europe, the Caribbean and Japan.
Non-painters are also welcome as the national park setting is perfect for nature walks, independent sightseeing with a rental car or simply lazing by the pool with a good book.
