It was a first for a painting holiday and a first at Manzac and what an experience. No worries, no decisions to make just wonderfully looked after by Giles and Louise with delightful facilities and wonderful food and by Sue Deighton, our tutor for a memorable painting experience. We were taken by Giles to delightful places where our vision and imaginations grew and with the help of Sue undreamed of painting levels were achieved by us all. Then after wonderful days, the evenings followed where conversation abounded throughout long memorable meals. I will certainly jump at the opportunity to go again.
