For those who are fans of my Blooms Pain ting Workshops and the beautiful work coming out of my long term programs looking for a wonderful painting immersion, in the heart of the French countryside and the biggest access available working with me for a thorough grounding of the Blooms Painting Method where you will;

  • Learn my effective and original system of painting called the Jacqueline Coates Blooms Painting Method® which accelerates your development and results to paint three midsize paintings. This is the Blooms Painting Method that has unlocked painting for thousands of people through online programs and in person workshops around the world.
  • Become confident when you learn all about Blooms colour mixing and colour creation to make your paintings pop
  • Paint like a pro when you learn how to handle acrylics and get the results you want including how to correct your paintings
  • Enjoy delicious meals prepared by a French chef and aperitifs in the studio from 5pm.
  • Enjoy a few local outings including a visit to a chateau and to the local markets and a Michelin Star restaurant
  • Floral photography sessions to grow your Blooms painting reference library with spring blooms


Enjoy meeting in Paris, exploring some charming pockets of Paris, then travelling to the heart of France, where Monet painted 29 paintings in the Creuse region.

Stay in homestyle comfort in characterful authentic French villas. Guests each have their own room. Enjoy life in a peaceful French hamlet and gorgeous walks down country lanes bordered with chestnut and oak trees.

I will teach you how to handle acrylics EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER PAINTED BEFORE. I will also show you how to use water-based oils on a smaller piece.

Let my team spoil you while you focus on everything I have to teach you to create beautiful paintings you will want to hang on your walls at home. And take home the know-how to produce more after your trip!
