We invite you to join us for a rare opportunity and spend 9 days in a historic Scottish Estate with contemporary Master Painter, Rose Frantzen.

The workshop takes place in and around the magnificent manor estate, where you will be painting both models and the natural world on extensive grounds. Expect to become fully immersed in Scottish life and the surrounding countryside. Scotland boasts pristine waters and a fertile landscape that remains under the watchful stewardship of local farmers, landowners and the National Trust, to ensure that the land is unspoiled. Be prepared for a sensual feast while you connect with art, which encompasses long hours of daylight, the flora and fauna, and the countryside which is Scotland’s heritage.

During the stimulating workshop, we will paint at the estate and venture out and try out our painting skills in the beautiful landscape, fishing villages and historic sites in this region of Scotland. Evenings are spent on the estate for ongoing painting demonstrations, discussions, and art-related activities with Rose and your fellow attendees. Rose will be in residence with us for the duration of the trip.

Other activities include visiting Dunnotter Castle overlooking the North Sea, lochs, hills and glens, a whisky distillery for tasting, and of course, the village pub.

The purpose of the art retreat is to make art in distraction-free aesthetic surroundings! You'll find camaraderie, connections, motivation and above all, inspiration as an artist.

Suitable for artists of all levels. This workshop is primarily for oil painters, but artists of other media will be accepted. Some drawing and painting experience is recommended. This is a workshop where non-painting partners are welcome. There will be plenty for them to do.

Once registered, we'll be in touch with all the details to help you arrive prepared.
