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.
Our painting Holidays based at Almuña with very talented, sympathetic and encouraging art teachers who 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”.
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.
