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.

Lessons will be tailored dynamically to suit the group's needs and interests. We only move forward to the next topic when we finish the previous one.

The goal of this week's art 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.

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