Art Classes and Workshops

Art Classes / one day (or two-morning) workshops:

My name is Renate van Nijen and I conduct art classes and workshops in the studio (and weather permitted in the beautiful patio) of my ‘arty home’ in the centre of the village of La Herradura. Painting groups are kept small (maximum 6) in order to give everyone the space, attention and help they might want. To find out more about my work you can check out my website: www.renatevannijen.com

About me:

I am a Dutch born, internationally exhibited artist and writer and have many exhibitions to my name. My work has been shown in renowned galleries and art festivals both in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France. I have many years of experience as a teacher and have inspired many with my encouraging approach.

I believe everybody can paint and I know, from experience, that I can get people, who have never painted before, to walk out with a nice painting after a day’s workshop or short art course. I love seeing and most of all pointing out the beauty and potential of my ‘students’. I do speak Dutch, English, German and Spanish and can manage in Italian.

One day workshop (can be two mornings)

A great creative day out with a group of friends or family.

A one day (or two morning) workshop gives the student just enough time to finish a painting and go home with their own ‘master piece’.

Because this is a real nice day (or two mornings) out with a group of friends I don’t set dates for these workshops. If you have a group of minimum four, maximum 6 friends you can get in touch with me to reserve a day of your choice.

The price for one day (or two mornings), which includes all materials plus coffee/tea and a treat and a drink, is € 65.00. The workshop is from 9.30 to 18.00 with a lunch break from 13.30 to 15.00.

You can also book this day including lunch in a typical Spanish restaurant on the seafront. The price including lunch and drinks and a ‘tapa’ and a drink in the afternoon at the end of the day is € 85.00

Suitable for beginners and or experienced painters. You will learn how to mix and use colours and how to set up a painting. If you are an experienced painter you will get tips about how to get to your ‘next level’

Minimum number of participants 4 and maximum number of people per class is 6 so you will get all the attention and help you possibly want.

We work with acrylics.

Time permitting, this depends on your skills and your interest you can also create a mandala.
