Sozo Arts Holidays
We have a range of art, craft and photography holidays that suit all abilities, from beginners to improvers. The art courses (Painting and wine, Painting and Pottery) typically cover a range of techniques, such as drawing, design, colour theories and basic hand modelling clay and glazing techniques, enabling you to gain confidence on your creative journey. The photography courses help you to ‘see’ and compose artistic pictures by understanding a variety of techniques and devices using manual modes on your camera. All the courses have in mind some site specific work and visits to inspiring sights in addition.
The four main holidays we offer for 2017 are: Photography on the Silver Coast, Photography in Lisbon, Painting and wine on the Silver Coast and Painting and Pottery on the Silver Coast. All the courses are taught by experienced professional artists or teachers with experience in those art genres. The holidays in Portugal are hosted by Kit and Samantha Jennings, experienced hosts, artists and teachers themselves so you will be in excellent hands.
Each course has been carefully organised to ensure that people have a balanced mix of learning and relaxing. We hope you will enjoy social times such as meals together, and encourage you in your free time to develop new found creative skills, enjoy visiting local sites or simply relax, it´s your choice, we can guide and advise you where necessary.
On occasions we run more specialised art courses, to meet the demands of those who wish to further develop their art techniques in a certain style/specific media and are taught by artists with a specific expertise. All our art tutors are selected and interviewed for their skill, experience and passion for passing on their skills. We also offer the art studio accommodation to artists/non artists who wish to simply rent or use as a holiday let.
