Our Ethos

"If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing."     Marc Chagall


"Painting is an attempt to come to terms with life. There are as many solutions as there are human beings."  George Tooker


"Art? You just do it."  Martin Ritt

Our Ethos


x2 art holidays and courses are unique, drawing on the enjoyment of the whole experience: location, time to reflect on art, to share the creative process, to experiment, and inspire individuals to develop their own art in a relaxed environment.


Two artists-tutors offer their support and experience, allowing exploration within the creative practice. The focus is placed on artistic development, rather than creating "instant art".


"Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist."

                                                                                                                   Pablo Picasso


X2 understands that artists need healthy delicious sustenance, so we source food and wine locally and in season. Coffee and tea breaks offer homemade cakes and biscuits, or local specialty items. Drinks and canapés are provided at the end of each day, which is a perfect time to reflect on the day’s work, discuss your individual development and

the next day’s schedule. This is followed by supper. Some meals are taken in local restaurants and this is indicated on each individual brochure.


“Food sublime, company fun and relaxed.”
