A painting holiday in Portugal at Monte Maravilhas is a special experience. The rustic estate is a true inspiration with its hills, cork and fruit trees. The calmness and the tranquillity provide a good platform to get your creative process growing. It’s in this silence that you will be able to clear your mind and this will benefit your artistic work.
The painting course is taught by William Emans from The Netherlands, an expressive artist with years of experience in teaching, drawing, and painting. He’s a very sweet man that has a great love for the arts. This makes him ideal to teach for you. His approach is very soft and mild, which fits perfectly in the week you’ll be having. He’s always prepared to guide you and show you new techniques that will benefit your work.
During the painting holiday, we are inspired by the beautiful nature of the Alentejo: flowers and trees, the moon, starry nights, earth colours and grape smells and silence. With individual guidance you’ll learn to express yourself in a unique way via various drawing and painting techniques. The painting holiday is suitable for beginners as well as experienced artists.
William: “It is not about the result, but about the realization and getting in touch with your inner creativity.”
