Painting and/or Drawing Holiday Course at the ancient monastery La Cartuja near Sevilla, Andalucia
Landscape and / or
Figure / Sculpture possible
La Cartuja is an ancient, peaceful
monastery set within the Sierra Morena Natural Park. Not many guesthouses
can rival the history of La Cartuja, which has served as a religious site
through the millennia and today is declared a Historical Monument, thanks to
its dedicated owner and restorer Carmen Ladrón de Guevara y Bracho.
This retreat is dedicated to artists, writers and thinkers, taking the place of the monks, creating works of art, which is the spiritual food in these modern days. The rooms of the Guesthouse are decorated with works by visiting artists.
In the Cartuja of Cazalla de la Sierra you can enjoy:
Gaining experience with structured guidanceis the tenor of the course - rather than blind trial and error with mere finger-pointing at errors and mildly helpful demonstrations. Constructive learning can take place with understanding and direction, where the teacher can demonstrate the causes of mistakes and solutions that work. I am working intensively with every individual student.
Even the two week courses often seem too short as creative intensity and enthusiasm take over resulting in astonishing paintings even by beginners. So try for 2 weeks instead of one!
