Guaranteed residential painting vacations in Europe

Workshop itinerary 2019


This is a general guide to our workshop itinerary schedule.


Each of our painting workshops is different and the actual schedule is decided by each art tutor individually according to the needs of the group and course structure.  

Generally we would go out painting plein air every other day, that would be one day at Las Orquideas, either painting in the gardens or the studio. The following day would be a trip out, varying between short travelling distances, to local sites, medium distance, 20 to 50 minutes travelling and longer distances, about an hours drive.


A typical weeks itinerary for a painting workshop would be: 


Day 1:

Complimentary transfer from airport to your accommodation at "Las Orquideas", Dalvaro Art venue for painting workshops in the Valle D'Albaida, Valencia, Spain. Please check timings for pick-ups.

Day 2:

After breakfast, meet the tutor. Days instruction in the studio or around the gardens.  Lunch and evening meal at Las Orquideas.

Day 3: Breakfast followed by our first trip out, usually to one of our fabulous mid distance locations, as shown below, as decided by the tutor and the needs of the group. Lunch may be at a restaurant in the chosen location or we may return to Las Orquideas.


Day 4:

Leisurely breakfast followed by a day at the venue, in the studio or the gardens.

Day 5:

Slightly earlier breakfast today as we prepare for one of our longer distance trips. A selection of which is shown below.


Day 6:

Day in the gardens of the venue or finishing work in the studio.

Day 7:

Final painting day so a local painting location today and back to Las Orquideas for lunch. Late session in the studio finalising the weeks work.

Day 8:

Breakfast then your complimentary transfer to the airport. Please check timings for drop-offs.

The above is just a guide to our schedule, as items outside of our control can change and some groups or tutors prefer to spend more time in our magnificent studio and gardens.
