Art Retreats in Spain
Painting the Costa Brava Landscape
EUROPEAN ART RETREATS are designed to provide a high level of classical art training in a relaxed atmosphere. While the classes are taught in English, the teachers are often fluent in multiple languages to provide individual coaching. Students are schooled in the use of classical materials--pencil, charcoal and oil paints - following methods of French 19th century ateliers. Daily painting and drawing exercises are followed by leisurely afternoons exploring ancient villages, shopping traditional markets or just relaxing in comfortable surroundings. Accommodations are selected to satisfy both the desire for creature comfort and an interest in the authentic experience of village life.
Classes are suitable for all skill levels. The teachers specialize in helping students advance their craft in a positive, affirming manner whether beginner, intermediate or advanced. Enjoy a European holiday while adding to your artistic skill set.
