  Studying Painting

Watercolorists and photographers couldn't pick a more colorful subject than Bali. Art tours are common here.

An Australian painter, Barbara Miller, runs an inn on the beach in remote Tabanan Regency, accommodating artists from around the world. Called BeeBees and located just four km beyond Kerambitan near the village of Tibubiyu. The seven rustic yet comfortable lumbung-style bungalows are the perfect retreat for painters.

Scores of painter's homestays in the Ubud area - Mimpi's, W Wayan Serathi's, I Wayan Suka's, to name a few - give lessons (look for the sign 'Painter & Homestay').

Certain galleries, like Agung Rai in Peliatan, offer lessons to foreign artists. Or you may want to see if you can get accepted as a student in the Balinese Art Development Center Program on Jl Bayusuta (in the Art Center in Abiankapas).

Always try for a student discount.
