Painting Holidays at Almuña

This area is made for the artist’s paintbrush. Landscapes in perfect soft light, dazzling white villages with terracotta roofs, tumbled down farmhouses caught in dappled shade, gnarled ancient cork oaks and precarious castles perched on craggy hill tops.

In 2018 we have three painting Holidays based at Almuña with very talented, sympathetic and encouraging art teachers. They teach in all mediums to the complete beginner as well as the more experienced painter. The size of the party allows the teacher to give a lot of individual attention so each “student”.

"Painting on a vine shaded terrace, with honeysuckle and wisteria gently bobbing in the afternoon breeze, Jane Arbuthnott is pouring chilled Spanish Chardonnay." - Stephen McClarence Yorkshire Post

The teaching is in the morning. There are early evening sessions set aside for further help, demos and critique. There will be painting excursions to scenic locations included in a daily programme of activities such as walking and golf for the non-painter who is equally welcome.
