Art Holidays

Would you like to learn to paint or improve on existing skills?

Sophia absolutely loves to paint and nothing gives her greater joy than passing on this ability to others.


Learn to paint in a day….?




it is possible and no painting experience is required.


This also includes teaching those wishing to move forward with their painting skills & discover new and exciting ways of getting their ideas onto the canvas.

Painting weekends are inclusive of all materials (even aprons), morning/afternoon tea break and a sumptuous lunch so nothing to bring but the wish to try something new. 


Classes are kept to a maximum of eight to ensure individual attention and a relaxed atmosphere. 

What's included in your holiday:

Acrylic Art Classes​

Starting at 10 am, with a break in the morning and afternoon, we have lunch at 12:30 for an hour and finish day 1 at 4 pm. The class ends at 12.30 on day 2 followed by lunch.

70% of art students who have lessons with Sophia have never painted.


Sophia goes through the day step-by-step, leaving plenty of space for you to develop your own ideas.


 Sophia also teaches those who have more experience and wish to develop their skills.


The tuition is fun, informal and supportive. Although we travel through the process one step at a time, there is the opportunity to paint whatever one wishes. It is simply a starting point for people to develop their own style and come up with alternative ideas.


Seaview Hotel is known for its great food.

The Restaurant at the Hotel has just received 2 AA Rosettes and is one of the best places to eat on the Island. 

The style is very Modern British with a regional Isle of Wight twist. Our Chefs work hand-in-hand with many local producers crafting dishes such as Green Barn Farm goats cheese souffle with watercress veloute that is simply a taste of the Wight.

When you stop for lunch at 12:30 you'll be treated to a delicious meal.

Tea and Coffee breaks will also be included.

The next class will be held on Saturday, 10th & Sunday, 11th February 2024.

Sophia Flowers


I have been a professional artist and art tutor for many years.


I teach regularly both in the UK and overseas at times too, running Residential Painting Holidays, giving demonstrations and holding art exhibitions.  In addition, I arrange Isle of Wight Painting Breaks together with local classes and online classes.  I was particularly happy when one of my original paintings was used as the front cover of an inspirational book by an Australian Author.

I believe true art is about letting go and it’s this I wish you to experience – there are no mistakes only discovery and learning.  I believe everyone can paint; you just need to be shown in a way that is right for you.  My aim is to build up your confidence, leaving you, the space to relax and have fun.

I particularly love to teach people of all abilities/ages, especially those who have never painted before.  


Classes are fun and enjoyable – you’ll be painting before you know it.
