Painting Courses in Northern Spain: 2013 Season - As Featured on IB3 Radio May 2005

The school will be open again for the Summer. We are offering something very special in the most beautiful and unspoiled place we have yet found in Spain, in the north of Castile and León!

New visitors: Welcome, we thank you for your interest, and if you want to know what is coming over the next year, don't forget to sign up for our occasional newsletter at the bottom of this page!

Information for Summer 2013

We offer courses in drawing and painting in various media to suit all levels of skill, from beginners to experienced artists, combined with a get-away-from-it-all break in the stunning pastoral countryside of the Omañas, with teaching in various media from just €250 per person (anticipated price) for one week (not including mid-day buffet meal €50 (anticipated price) supplement: flights and accommodation not included).

The courses are normally non-residential. You will stay at a hotel where you can take breakfast, and we then pick you up and take you to where we are painting that day. This may be the Painting Centre, where you also take your mid-day meal, or an excursion nearby. Non-painting partners are welcome. You may also of course arrange your own accommodation and attend on a tuition-only basis. Courses are offered in July and August when it is neither too hot - nor too cold! - to enjoy the painting.

"You made me:
Extremely welcome. Very comfortable. Very confident. Extremely excited. Eager to continue. So thank you both so much for a life changing week..."
2003 Student
We're not a large commercial organisation - you'll be working directly with the tutors and with the other students. The courses will be held at our new Painting Centre. The maximum number of painting guests per tutor is normally twelve, and most courses are run on a half day tuition/half day free basis five days a week. In the mornings we introduce or develop topics, in the afternoons you can develop your technique and ideas - or of course just do whatever you wish!

The principal tutor is Marisa Martin MA, (ARCA).
