This page provides information about the DATES and PRICES for this summer’s workshops/courses at The Painting School of Montmiral. Also, at the bottom of this page, you will find some helpful travel information and an online booking form . For information about what artists supplies you need to bring with you, please go to our “facilities” page


  • Saturday 15 June – Saturday 29 June 2019
  • Saturday 20 July – Saturday 3 August 2019

The first Saturday is arrivals day. Students can arrive any time after 11.00 am, although the first fixture is the evening meal at 7.30 pm. However, if their travel arrangements permit, new students are encouraged to arrive earlier rather than later, as the Course Director likes to spend some introductory time with them before the course starts in earnest on the Sunday morning. The last Saturday is departures day. On arrivals day, we can arrange to pick you up either from Gaillac railway station (for free) or from Toulouse (Blagnac) airport (for a reasonable price). On departures day, we can take you in the reverse direction.


Prices below cover teaching, studio facilities, breakfasts, four evening meals and accommodation in a local gîte (a holiday home with two or three bedrooms).

  • Single person with own bedroom: € 1460
  • Couples or those who wish to share a bedroom with a friend should contact me on available price reductions.
  • Non-painting partners: € 920 (includes breakfasts, four evening meals and shared bedroom).
  • Cost without accommodation: € 890 (includes breakfasts and four evening meals).

Payments can be made by bank transfer Euros. To convert the prices to your currency at the current exchange rate, use this Currency Converter.


Bookings will be confirmed on receipt of a deposit of €550 per person.
The final payment should be made at least five weeks before arrival.
No refunds are made in the event of cancellation. Therefore students are strongly advised to take out a holiday insurance policy which will protect them against any such eventualities.

Getting here

Students need to make their own travel arrangements. The closest airport is Toulouse Blagnac, which is well served by scheduled flights within Europe. For a reasonable extra charge arrangements can usually be made for picking you up at Toulouse Blagnac airport. The drive to Castelnau de Montmiral takes around 50 minutes.

Alternatively there is a regular shuttle bus service to take you from Toulouse Blagnac airport to the train station at Toulouse Matabiau. The shuttle journey time from the airport to the train station varies according to the time of day and can take between 30 minutes and an hour. The train journey from Toulouse Matabiau to Gaillac is around 40 – 50 minutes. We will meet you at Gaillac for no extra charge. Click here for page with three maps that will help you to locate Toulouse, Gaillac, Castelnau de Montmiral and Rue de la Porte Neuve.
