At Painting in Spain you will receive individual attention on a structured course with a minimum of 21 tuition hours per week.

Your tutor; Andy Russell is an experienced professional artist and teacher who specialises in acrylics and inspiring confidence in beginners. The majority of our guests are mature students; to date the age range has been from 16 to 84.

His objective is to improve your technique regardless of your starting point and to help you have lots of fun along the way. This painting holiday is suitable for everyone from beginners to more experienced painters, all are welcome.

We have been successfully running our Painting Holidays since 2007. The best way to decide if one of our courses is for you is to read the glowing testimonials from our previous guests: guests/press comments

We are based in the beautiful, white Andalucian village of Alcalá de los Gazules. Alcalá is approximately 60 km from La Linea de la Concepcíon and Gibraltar in the direction of Jerez de la Frontera. You will have plenty of opportunity to experience the architecture, culture, history and the spectacular scenery of our beautiful town; with the added bonus that we are within an easy stroll of all of the bars, shops and restaurants. Alcalá is definitely ‘unspoiled Spain’ and off the main tourist track.

Small Groups of 4 to 8 students
Individual en- suite rooms
There is no single supplement for solo travellers.
