Art Courses

Noelle Griffiths and her husband Richard have been running art courses in South West Spain since 2012.
The LANDSCAPE courses are based in their delightful country Finca, off the beaten track, with fine views of the Sierra de Montanchez in Extremadura. A magical place to sketch, paint and relax.
The TOWNSCAPE course in Vejer de la Frontera is organised by Noelle and her good friend Gisela Radant Wood. We stay in a traditional 17th century Moorish house in the heart of the historic old town - one of the finest white villages of Andalucia.

The painting holidays are for groups of up to 6 guests, with 30 hours tuition and plenty of time to relax. We meet you at the airport, accommodation, meals and transport within the region all included.

The relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the approach to teaching, which tries to nurture and develop each individual according to their needs, make the courses truely special.

2018 ~ LANDSCAPE Sketching and Painting in May, September and October in Sierra de Montanchez.

2018 ~ TOWNSCAPE Urban Sketching and Painting in Merida in April-May and Vejer de la Frontera in September.
