A course in Portugal, lessons in a relaxed atmosphere………

If you live in the area of Mendeira, Cernache do Bonjardim (Sertã), you are welcome at one of our art course. These courses include five weeks of one three hours lesson per week. In this course you will learn the principles of drawing and painting, and explore the use of various materials and techniques, with the aim of developing your own style. All kinds of subjects, such as landscape, portrait and even abstract, can be included.

In order to be able to personally guide everyone sufficiently, Els aims for a group of maximum 8 participants per course. Personal guidance for both beginner, intermediate and advanced students is guaranteed.

The 5-week courses always start in the spring and autumn on a date to be determined, depending upon the group’s availability.
