Painting Get Away Breaks 


Acrylics Personalised Painting Breaks

Short painting breaks with working artist

Come and explore your creative talents in a relaxed and fun way.

Even if you've never drawn or painted before, you can release your "inner artist". 

  • Did you enjoy art as a child but life got in the way?
  • Have you secretly wanted to start painting?
  • Would you like to tap into, develop and explore your creativity in the safety of a relaxed environment with the support and encouragement of a working artist who understands human emotions, who can guide you through this to release your own artist within?
  • Would you like to experience an art break where stunning scenery and breathtaking views will inspire your creative juices?
  • Or maybe you'd simply like to paint in a warm sunny authentic Pueblo Blanco in the heart of Andalucian mountains and soak up the ambiance, enjoy local gastronomy, wine, tapas, una cervecita..?

Enjoy Art! Come with an open mind and be prepared to experiment

There are no mistakes, only Art.  I encourage you to relax and enjoy playing with the techniques we'll explore together to free up your unique creativity, even if you think you don't have any, with me, you'll find it! You'll learn to link up your eye to hand coordination in the safety of a relaxed fun atmosphere. Find out how to mix and use colours, and relish in the bright vivid joy they bring. Maybe you already have some ideas but are not sure how to develop them. With the support of a working artist you can find the guidance you need to unlock your potential.

Take away your own painting and sketch book with ideas

By the end of the break, you'll have improved your skills, and maybe found some you thought you never had! Not only will your head be full of ideas that you'll have the confidence to develop, you'll take away your own painting and your sketch book in which you'll be able to continue building the base for your very own body of work.
