Following a fab holiday last year, Mum and I returned. George and Gail were excellent hosts, teachers, nurses, etc. A very eventful week with over run builders, vertigo, wasps ( not at Jones the Art ) our hosts were incredibly kind, helpful and considerate. Pleased with the 8 paintings I produced under George's tutorage.

Tuition and studio facilities were first rate, the best course of about a dozen that we have done together. George assessed our needs and taught individually accordingly, always encouraging and...

My friend and I had a second art holiday with George and Gail. We were even happier when we left after our five day holiday than the previous year. We have decided to go for a third visit. We would not go three times without a good reason. I cannot praise them enough. We both learnt so much so will... More

We booked Jones the Art for a family day trip preceding a holiday and had an excellent time. We were made to feel completely at home immediately, learnt a lot, ate a lot, and left feeling inspired to create fabulous art!

George is an inspiring teacher and his wife Gail feeds the students with delicious beautifully presented home cooked food.

My wife bought me a five day painting holiday with 'Jones the Art' as part of my 60th Birthday present. Not having had art lessons at school I was a total novice, and a little nervous. I need not have worried. George had thoughtfully put out some art-work that he felt I might enjoy and that might prove useful during... More

Being new to art I wasn’t sure what to expect on the 2 day Art Course my wife had bought me as a Christmas gift. I was not disappointed that’s for sure!

Hey! George and Gail are great! I really enjoyed the five days I spent with them this past summer. George is a veritable overflowing fountain of information and expertise—our work together really helped me think about my art practice in some interesting new ways. I appreciated the mix of studio and en plein air work. Wales and the Ceiriog Valley... More
