Experienced artist and teacher, Juliet Goodden will be leading the Via Augusta Art Weeks, to be held amongst the glorious olive groves of Manna House Holidays in Southern Catalonia.

The school is situated on a working olive and almond farm midway between Barcelona and Valencia, overlooking the  beautiful Ebro Delta, home of Paella rice growing.

This tranquil and ancient landscape makes for the perfect setting to explore your creativity. Juliet has taught at all levels and will cater for beginners as well as the more experienced.

In the mornings we will look at colour and composition through the work of Mediterranean artists, followed by drawing and painting from the landscape, interiors and still life. Afternoons will be free for trips out or to continue with what you started in the morning.

Some materials will be provided, if you want to use your own, please bring them.
