Painting classes

Tuscan light has long held a special meaning for artists and the spell remains alive.

The differences in altitudes throughout the region make the light differ in intensity throughout the day.

The light – even at midday – is never harsh - as it is in comparably warm places where the topography is less varied.

Visitors, even those with no prior inclination, often pick up a pencil and sketchpad or a palette and set of brushes.

The villa is well equipped with artists’ supplies and individual instruction and group lessons can be arranged.

Almost every room and wall in Borgo Pignano holds a painting or drawing made by artists with a connection to Tuscany or Borgo Pignano itself.

Some of the works are by well-known modern and contemporary British artists while many have been made during residences by students and alumni of The Royal Drawing School, established by King Charles III.
