Event description
Join Artist and Curator Diana Ali for a week of experimental art workshops in stunning Central Portugal

About this Event

Diana Ali is a Visual Artist, International Curator, Creative Mentor, Workshop Leader and Lecturer in Fine Art. She is also a Professional Mentor on BBC1’s The Big Painting Challenge.

This explorative painting retreat, based in Central Portugal, is an opportunity to spend 5 days immersed in a series of workshops with Diana as your mentor. Working in a different location each day you will be challenged and stretched to find new ways of working with your creativity and expanding your skills.

The landscape of Central Portugal is extremely diverse, from fire ravaged hillsides to verdant river banks, breath-taking mountains to pretty stone villages. It's an area yet to be discovered by the crowds and provides rich and varied subject material for the workshops.

Diana provides:

-Guidance on techniques to suit the individual’s personal style and approach

-1-1 guidance, which will be tailored to the individual

- References to contextualise the work to other artists so there is a meaning to the work

- Constructive feedback with advice on technicalities as well as how to make the work meaningful and sophisticated

- Lots of listening

- Allowing for mistakes to happen and working with them

- A good laugh, enjoyment in learning and sharing of ideas and experience

- Breaking the rules in art techniques to make room for invention and creativity

- Confidence to working outside amongst the public

- Lots of techniques that do not have a right answer but a sense of exploration and self-discovery

Your base for the retreat will be the beautiful luxury hotel of Quinta da Palmeira in the village of Cerdeira, Arganil. The retreat price includes 5 days of workshops, 7 nights accommodation including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Transfers from Porto or Lisbon airport or Coimbra-B train station are also included in the price (based on prior arrangements) of course you are also welcome to make your way to the hotel.

The full price of the retreat is £1950 with a £100 non refundable deposit. Secure your place now via Eventbrite.
