A workshop Painting in Portugal………

During a six days art workshop, various topics are brought up. By looking,  using and experimenting different materials and techniques you will learn to capture what you see or experience, working at an outdoor location or in our artstudio in Mendeira in order to arrive at your own style. On request emphasis can be placed on portrait.

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

One workshop is planned for 2023 from 4 till 9 June.
