I have been on several Art destination workshops in Eurorpe and, most recently, on a visit to Portugal I discovered the Art Café. The Portugal trip was exceptional.  I thoroughly enjoyed the company of all of the fellow budding artists on the trip. The hotels and day excursions were meticulously planned. Each day we discovered new and wonderful places to draw, paint and tour the area with a fun, personable and well-informed hosts. The group meals were a particular highlight. We all gathered each day for either lunch or dinner at great restaurants, where the wine and conversation flowed in equal measure. I came away inspired, with a ton of great sketches and wonderful memories, as well as many new friends.

This was my first time painting. It’s hard to describe how relaxing it was. The set-up is so professional, friendly, inviting, above all the people are so nice and we had so much fun. I thoroughly recommend having a go.
