Indulge in a weekend sketching by the sea! For many decades Collioure has remained a very popular destination for artists. Rich in history it offers a huge variety of subjects for painting and drawing and in fantastic light.
During this lovely weekend break we’ll be sketching around the old town and the chateau. Our sketchbooks will be filled with colour as we study boats, water and the hustle bustle of the busy cafés that surround the port.
Join for one or two days. Saturday is a great introduction to page planning and use of line and watercolour – great for absolute beginners and a good refresher for sketchers with more experience.
