Private art retreat K.Beauchamp

My aunt and I had a great experience with Wild at Art, from the accommodations, to our 2-day painting course, to the fresh food and meals out. The Scottish landscape, particularly the area our shortbreak introduced to us – Culcreuch Castle, Fintry – was definitely worth painting!
We so appreciated the personalization Wild At Art provided based on the hopes my aunt and I had for our experience, for example not knowing what painting medium we wanted to use, so providing all the options. Our instructor Katherine accommodated both my aunt’s interest in a beginner’s painting crash course, and my pursuit of open experimentation. We both left happy.
Thanks for a wonderful time, we’re eager to return! {Laura, New York City, Private painting experience with Katherine Cowtan, October 2019}

Very well organized, no stress, a great learning experience…and you get to see the best of Scotland! {Don, California, Tailor made watercolour painting experience, June 2019}
