Our Isle of Thanet is famous for its ‘big skies’, and that’s partly why it has been popular with artists for centuries – the most famous being J.M.W.

Our new Spanish group from IMECAT started their week in the UK with a visit to London, led by Hilderstone tutor Ellie. It’s such a pity it was a rainy day, but it didn’t stop them enjoying themselves and doing lots of sightseeing!

I stayed for a month while studying at Hilderstone College. I was obviously mesmerised by the architecture and the beautiful beaches. But there […]
