So much more than just learning how to paint... Feed your creative side and learn how to paint, draw and create at Sarah Bell’s Watercolour Workshops. One of the most truly inspirational English watercolour painting experiences ever! Come for a short painting break or dip in for just a day of learning with a professional artist with an expert, fun and supportive style of tuition.

A Zest for Life and Art. The artist Sarah Bell is an inspirational teacher for painting and drawing but also for truly seeing the beauty of what is around us and how to capture its essence. Here's what her students say:
  • "What was most special about the whole experience was Sarah herself - a gem of a teacher because she's a unique human being who has the capacity to selflessly share her God-given gift with others." - L. Turner.
  • "Sarah is a brilliant tutor and explains everything so clearly." - L. Townsend
  • "Her expertise is stunning... demonstrations are frequent, hugely useful, and technically perfect." - Dr S. Feneley, Oxford University.
A Special Place: We are based in stunning Devon countryside at a thatched farmhouse (built around 1460) now a unique hotel. On our doorstep are rare breed chickens and geese; Basil and Rocket the goats, and the lush meadows by the banks of the River Teign... people fall in love with the whole place.
