All inclusive art holiday, art vacation, paint vacation


A new concept in the USA – an all inclusive art holiday/art vacation/ paint vacation including accommodations, food, and creative art instruction and inspiration.Welcome to your art holiday USA:

The Shenandoah Art Destination  is magnificently located in Virginia, USA. Located three miles south of the historic town of Lexington, the 10 acre property is surrounded by scenic rolling hills nestled in the Shenandoah Valley between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains; the perfect art get-away location.

The Shenandoah Art Destination provides the ideal art vacation, creative holiday and inspiration for an art lover of any ability.   You will be offered art courses in drawing, painting and printmaking, together with an exceptional range of studio facilities.  BUT, it’s more than just a painting week – it’s a great holiday too.

Your hosts are Jan-Willem Boer, an established artist and commercial illustrator, and Nancy Bácher, an artist’s representative.  Jan-Willem worked and taught for over 25 years in the USA and Europe.  Together they offer art courses, inspiration and individual guidance to their art students, making each course a unique learning experience for artists at all levels.

Art courses and workshops in drawing, painting and printmaking run from early spring to late autumn and are structured to accommodate a wealth of creative pursuits from drawing, airbrush, pastels, watercolor, acrylic and oil painting to drypoint, lino, monoprinting and mixed media.  Watch for 2015 courses posted  by end November.
