What To Expect:
You’ll spend time sketching in and around Olhao, in the indoor and outdoor studio spaces. There will be plenty of opportunities to improve your techniques, including observation, brush work, colour mixing and much more. As the tutor I am available to guide and answer your questions as you go through the week. The itinerary includes sketching the beautiful cathedral in the town square, visiting the busy fruit, flower and fish markets, a visit to a nearby island to be on the beach, a life drawing/painting class.

The beautiful Art School is situated in Olhao, 15km east of Faro a working fishing town with cobbled streets and a stunning harbour. It also has a bustling daily market and authentic historical buildings. It is in a non touristy part of the Algarve.
As it is a mixed media course, you will have an opportunity to try out drawing with pencils, charcoal, Chinese ink, (Celia will supply) coloured chalk pastels and painting with watercolour and acrylic paints. It is best to bring your favourite materials with you. However, there are art materials you can buy at the school and in the town.
