Enjoy the relaxing and almost meditative effect of letting go of preconceptions of how we feel things should be, by developing and improving skill in observing and drawing things in the way they actually appear. We’ll create fairly large drawings based on our surroundings - nature, buildings and people, including a life model - before producing paintings using good quality chalk pastels or watercolours.

There will be group tuition and guidance at the start of each session, one- to-one assistance during the sessions themselves and a coming-together at the end of each to reflect on our work. Tuition will follow each person’s direction, with no pressure to work in any way other than at your own pace.

One of the most meaningful aspects of the approach is the sense of calm and peace enjoyed by participants. It provides an oasis in life’s busyness, fitting perfectly with the atmosphere and ethos beloved of visitors to Cortijo Romero.
