Painting  Mallorca in Watercolor 

A Sketchbook Journaling Workshop with Karen Ramsay

Come join us and capture Mallorca in watercolor! As we fill our art travel journals with sketching and watercolors, Karen will give us tips and tricks for improving this special skill. Sketching on location, while traveling, is an art form that you can take with you on every future trip. The daily sketches that you create will become a treasured visual diary of your travel.

About the area

The island of Mallorca has always attracted painters, writers, poets, musicians and other artists. Some artists who have chosen to make Mallorca their home include Frederic Chopin, Joan Miro,  and the writer Robert Graves! 

The island offers everything from large city living in the capital Palma to quaint village life in small towns like Deia, Fornalutx and Valldemossa.

During this week in Mallorca, we will explore the island, its many scenic areas - from the gorgeous views over the Mediterranean Sea to the small quaint towns in the Tramuntana mountain range:​​

Fornalutx, one of the prettiest villages of Spain, with its cobbled streets and terracotta roofs, surrounded by well-tended orange and lemon groves. The artist town of Deia, home to celebrities such as Michael Douglas, perched in a ravine at the foot of the Teix mountain, with views out to the Mediterranean below and with an interesting museum dedicated to the writer Robert Graves. Valldemossa, once a home for Frederic Chopin and George Sands, with art galleries, a 400 year old olive estate, outdoor cafes and restaurants. Soller, a charming town with an impressive cathedral, dating from the 1200s and a botanical garden with many endangered local plant species. Palma, once a laid-back capital, now a cosmopolitan city, with a bustling city center and a preserved old town.
