We want to share with you what it's like to live in this slice of paradise

Waking up every day to the warmth of a sun that shines bright all year round, so you can capture it on paper. The lessons will be dynamic, tailored to each student's pace, all amidst nature to draw inspiration from it.

The goal during this art retreat is to provide a place for sharing knowledge in a relaxing environment where you can immerse into painting without worrying about anything else that usually traps us during our daily lives, so you can unlock the abstract painter within you.

All set in the heart of Lanzarote. In a majestic villa surrounded by stunning views that instantly connect us to the island's spirit.

Beyond painting alongside Nurdebof every day, you'll also have free time to relax, to practice by your own or to discover Lanzarote island and share your experiences with other artists by the sea.

Departure day and byebyes

We'll wake up on our last day for a final farewell and closing session with a georgous breakfast. We'll pack our bags and get ready for the transfer to the Cesar Manrique Airport of Lanzarote.

Nurdebof

Nurdebof is a Spanish abstract artist born from the premise of experimenting with her own creativity, resulting from deep introspection. She began to explore what today is her natural environment: abstract art, where she becomes merely an instrument of the present.

Moved and excited by the landscape, she has managed to create works that have been exhibited in several group exhibitions. However, it has been her two trips to Lanzarote that have marked a before and after in her artistic practice, culminating in her first solo exhibition.

In the artist's words: "The collection is a visual statement of the island's majesty. It is a visual journey through the force of nature and convey its beauty. These canvases are my way of sharing the extraordinary symphony of colors and shapes that Lanzarote offers."

For Nuria, sharing comes naturally, she has been conducting workshops with the same passion and care she puts into each canvas. Now, she returns to Lanzarote to lead her first retreat at The Sun Collective, the "Abstract Art Retreat."
