East Devon Art Academy had the honour of Francesco Fontana flying all the way from Italy to run a workshop last week.
Francesco is an award-winning watercolour and oil artist who flies all around the world painting and leading workshops.
Cathy Osbond, director of the Old Fore Street academy, said: “We had a fantastic time.
“Francesco is a very knowledgeable and fabulous artist who taught us such a lot over the three days.
“We also had a chance to paint outdoors as the weather was kind.
