The emphasis for your week will be on enjoying yourself exploring sketching and painting outdoors and having fun filling your sketchbook with ideas and images to work on back in the studio. Daily demonstrations will cover topics such as sketching in pencil with watercolour washes, pen and ink studies and the basics of watercolour painting.

Each student will receive individually focused tutoring time so that personal progress may be enhanced and achieved.

Other associated skills and techniques such as materials, drawing, perspective and colour mixing can be introduced as students choose. But the essence of your week will be to enjoy the process — if you produce some pictures you are pleased with — that’s an added benefit!

Cost includes pick up from Faro as well as 7 nights full board, and a mid-week excursion to the islands.
