Thailand Painting Holidays

paint on the banks of the Mekong River

A wonderful combination of painting tuition and Thai culture in a small guest house on the banks of the Mekong River at Phon Phisai in NE Thailand.  During the dry cool months of October to January each year the guesthouse provides a combination of painting tuition and Thai rural culture experience to 4 guests each week.

The visits are individually tailored to provide the level of tuition and Thai experience that each visitor seeks.  This website contains details of the tuition, experiences and facilities together with prices and booking facilities. 

 

Artist in Residence holiday

In addition to our two five star guest rooms we have a small room suitable for an artist residency holiday.  We can make this available to an artist for periods of not less than two weeks at $450 USD per week.  We will provide transport and meals.  

Transport includes pickup and drop off at the airport or train station, and some local transport, bicycles are also available.

Trips during your stay are additional at a  cost of $100 USD for a day trip or $50 for a half day trip.

Meals will be with our family, mainly local food but fine for Westerners.  When we have guests staying with us, the Artist in Residence can eat with them with a much greater choice of food than the family normally eats.

Shared studio facilities are available.  In practice most work it done on the Terrace as the weather is fine and the view lovely.  We provide our guests with most artist materials but the Artist in Residence will have to provide their own materials, some of which are available locally.

If the Artist in Residence wishes to do some tutoring and this is attractive to our guests we can arrange some payment for time spent tutoring guests.

We mainly concentrate on drawing and painting but we could include photography, ceramics, jewelry making etc.  The main limitation would be materials and equipment.  It is VERY difficult to source art supplies in NE Thailand.

Our holiday season is limited by the time we can take our boys off school here in Australia while they attend a school in Thailand.  So we open from October to January inclusive each year.

If you are interested in visiting us as an Artist in Residence email me at jeremyholton@gmail.com and please pass this on to anybody else who might be interested
