Painting holidays in Spain


Passion and creative flair are pillars of the Spanish culture and a fine basis for painting holidays
Think Picasso and Goya, colour and heat. Our very first painting holidays were in Andalucia, Spain. It’s a region we know well and still love. Our painting holiday in Andalucia is well off the beaten track and takes place in the region of Aracena, in the west of Andalucia and unusually for Andalucia it’s not brilliant white villages with limestone backdrops but stone-built villages nestling in gentle Oak and Chestnut covered hills. By way of a complete contrast our other painting holiday in Spain is on La Gomera, a small, lesser known volcanic island a ferry ride from Tenerife in the Canary Islands. We like to take you 'special' unexplored places, and La Gomera is a beautiful island with fantastic locations for painting, both coastal and mountain. Enjoy the beach, the sun sinking into the Atlantic Ocean, fascinating local history, great company and fantastic food and return home with you memories recorded in your paintings.
