Along with my friend and host Katja, I am now running sketchbook holidays at her beautiful Andalusian avocado farm. Within striking distance of Malaga, Katja’s 33 acre farm produces citrus, avocados and pecans. The elegant but homely Cortijo (farmhouse) sits in an elevated position, at the centre of the farm and has far-reaching panoramic views to the valleys and mountains beyond. Our main area of study is sketching and I will work with you to produce a unique and personalised visual memoir of your stay. This is a perfect experience for those of you who have never done any art. You’ll get lots of attention and have fun too. All materials are provided and on certain retreats a daily yoga class takes place, normally poolside, courtesy of visiting teacher, Susanne Tanzinger.
