This September we are delighted to welcome back Antony Williams RP to lead his third painting course at Maison du Guit. Antony is one of the UK’s best-known portrait artists and has painted members of the royal family, politicians, international sportsmen and actors.


Antony exhibited his portraits in a solo exhibition:

"In stillness - Life" at Messums London, 28 Cork Street,

from 14 September – 14 October 2022


This exciting course at Maison du Guit offers a rare opportunity to work side by side with one of the country’s leading artists, and it will include painting landscapes, figures in a landscape as well as portraits in the studio using a model. Antony’s laid back, inclusive and informal approach guarantees an insightful and stimulating week discovering new methods of creative expression. Antony, who was elected to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1996, has carefully planned a schedule to suit all standards and tastes. You will be painting in the spacious studio and grounds at Maison du Guit, the local chateau and picturesque village
