Our workshop and house are situated at 5 car minutes from the village of Archidona.

Our workplace is an enormous hall of a 140 m2 directly adjacent to the house, in the middle of the vast andalucian countryside.

In the hall we have everything necessary to follow the lessons adequately.

We can also work outdoors, to enjoy the views of our terrain (25.000 m2), and of course paint.

Our premises have a beautiful plaza with veranda, planters and little trees,

...and with Jacuzzi and “wading pool” to enjoy while taking a break in the hottest months… and …

…an outdoor kitchen, where we could agree on cooking a barbeque together.

And how about enjoying our splendid lounge bench in the sun?

In the winter we often use our spacious living room/kitchen to draw and paint.

We always start with an “intake session” of an hour, on the first day.

This is to get insight about your level of drawing experience, after which we will be able to start your lessons tailor-made, and you will be able to develop your talents in a very satisfactory way.













Even total beginners! You will be amazed about your advances made in just one week!


The course-fee is Euro 400, -- for a one-week course.


Classes from Monday up to and included Friday, and optional Saturday morning.

Everyday from 10.00 h. till 14.00 h. (with a coffee break)

Lunch and siesta on your own

Afternoon from 17.00 h. tot 20.00 h.: workshop open to finish work from the morning or to start a new lesson theme (with coffee or tea brake)

This depends on your energy level and commitment; you can also use the afternoon to explore the region.

The Spanish way of life means that restaurants open at 20.00 h at night, and serve until deep into the night.
