Do you have a desire to create, but are afraid you can’t draw or paint well enough? No technical “ know- how” needed! This beginning collage class will show you how to use acrylic paint, paper, tape, printed magazine images, photos, fabric and other ephemera to express your vision.

Drawing on inspiration from art history, literature, our own sense of humour, and the beauty of the surrounding Algarve, we will produce collaged pieces which may be abstract or representational.

We will also start sketchbooks, gathering ideas for new compositions, while adventuring outside of the school setting.

The course includes 7 nights accommodation, all meals and drinks, 6-day course, taxi pick up from Faro as well as a mid-week excursion to the islands of Culutra or Armona
