Art Courses

Throughout the year we cater for all levels of ability and all styles of painting. If you are looking for a mixed course or just a pure watercolour week we have something for you. Each week varies from tutor to tutor, however we have laid out the following sample courses which gives you an idea of what to expect during your weeks course. The cost includes accommodation, all your food and drink including half a bottle of wine at dinner, 6 day painting course and a mid week trip to the Island of Armona or Farol. We also offer for a €20 supplement an extra days trip to either the old town of Faro or Tavira.

All courses follow a similar pattern of sketching in and around Olhão and also using the large studios, this way painters will get an opportunity for some out door painting as well as tutors covering different aspects of technique, colour mixing etc. Detailed itineraries will be provided at your welcome drink on arrival in Olhão and we are happy to talk through any courses or questions you have in more detail. There is an excellent art shop in Olhão should you forget any of your materials, but please remember that we only supply easels, tables and chairs, portable easels and portable chairs.

We are also offering long weekend courses which will mostly be in the months of October, November and December. The courses consist of 3 days tuition and will include an island trip. Guests will arrive on Thursday and leave on Monday. All meals are included and there will be an opportunity to visit the weekend market. The weather is still very pleasant and can reach up to 18 degrees.
