Our school sits in the heart of the historically protected and picturesque fishing town of Olhão, perfectly placed to capture its romantic charm.

We’ve carefully restored the school, retaining historic vaulted ceilings, Roman brickwork and other authentic features, whilst designing studio and courtyard areas that are flooded with natural light. This has created a tranquil space that’s designed to inspire artistic creativity.


£865 per painter to include fully catered accommodation and tuition.

What's included:

Your course fee includes all your accommodation, food and drink - including a half-bottle of wine at dinner - six days of painting and a mid-week trip to the island of Armona or Farol. For an additional €20, we can arrange a day trip to either the Faro old town or Tavira.

We supply easels and chairs for use inside and outside the art school, along with tables for your art supplies. We also have a small selection of oil paints, paper and brushes, but please bring everything else you need with you.

Flights are not included and should be booked separately.

Accommodation is included in all our courses, which means you’ll be staying either in the School House or the Pool House. These are both beautiful buildings, painstakingly renovated by our team, and offering spacious en-suite double, twin and single rooms. Both houses have lovely indoor lounges and eating areas, an outdoor swimming pool, and plenty of terraces and courtyards where you can soak up the sun.

The houses are linked by a courtyard, so for the majority of our courses, they function as a single house, keeping everything in one central site.

Equipment: A full list of required equipment will be issued upon receipt of your booking.
