Painting Holidays in France & Spain



In 2020 I will be running two drawing & painting holidays; one in Spain at Cortijo Romero in June and another in France at La Roane in September. Further details regarding the French holiday will be posted soon. 


From the 13th to the 20th of June 2020, Art Classes in the Botanics will hold its fifth drawing & painting holiday at Cortijo Romero, Orgiva, near Granada in southern Spain.

The venue is Cortijo Romero, within walking distance of the beautiful town of Orgiva, on the western end of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

We will be working with various materials to focus on expressive mark making, understanding colour, portraying light and shadow, observational drawing, mastering perspective, composition and more. Some materials are provided along with drawing boards for each person. All our work takes place outside in the grounds of the Cortijo and in the landscape nearby; with warm temperatures each day it is perfect weather for drawing and painting in the open air.


Everyone is welcome to attend whether you are a complete beginner or have more experience.


Cortijo Romero arranges all bookings, airport transfers and other details - to book please visit their website at:



In previous years the courses and locations were hugely enjoyed by everyone. We had sunny, warm weather, allowing us to work out of doors for the duration of the course. Everyone created many beautiful drawings and paintings. The catering, accommodation and support were fantastic with excursions in the landscape and the beautiful towns nearby.
