All Art Materials provided and included in the price !!!
All art materials are included in the price of the holiday except brushes as these are personal to each painter. This alleviates the need to pack awkward and bulky items in your suitcase.
We have a list of materials available on request so that you know what is available before coming and if you have a preference for a specific colour or a certain accessory like a palette you are advised to bring these.
Of course you are entirely free to bring all your own equipment but at least by knowing that the materials are there you don’t need to worry about bringing extra “just in case”.
Our holidays in The Western Algarve are based at Villa Termal Das Caldas De Monchique Spa Resort, which is in the National Park of the Serra De Monchique and has a huge variety of painting subjects including traditional Portuguese architecture, cobbled streets lined with deciduous trees and dappled sunlight. There are buildings perched down the valley giving various vantage points for painting. It is a wonderful place to visit, stay and paint where you will soak up the atmosphere of the place.
