Courses with a Flavour of Spain

Come on a painting or cookery holiday in beautiful Andalucia, Spain and learn a new skill or develop existing talents! Since May 2005, a range of courses and workshops including cookery, watercolour painting, painting with acrylics or oils, creative writing, yoga and pilates have been run at El Molino del Conde by Mike and Lari Powell of A Flavour of Spain. From 2018, following Mike and Lari's well-deserved retirement, these courses are being hosted at El Molino del Conde by WhereverNext.

Without doubt, the best workshop I've ever given was in Spain at El Molino where the surroundings, the food and the learning experience were truly amazing”

Linda says "The culture and beauty of Spain is sure to inspire! My focus for painting at El Molino del Conde and the surrounding area is to have an exhilarating time taking our personal response to what we see and feel, and finding ways to express these experiences using watercolour, pen & ink, and some integrated writing. Participants will be shown specific skills to help them translate these experiences to paper. Emphasis will be on having fun and feeling free within the medium."

Gail says “While everyone is welcome to paint in any size and any medium, I love to capture the magic of this corner of the world on small pieces that become treasured souvenirs. When back in your own studio, you can create larger paintings and have fun extending your whole Spanish experience."

"The comfortable accommodation in a centuries old building and the gourmet Spanish food are wonderful. You live in a calm oasis where the painting opportunities are endless."
