Sketching and painting
Back to archive

Spend hours or days learning to sketch or paint, and perfecting skills, the surrounding beauty of the Apulian landscape will fill you with inspiration. Choose a shady corner in our own masseria to capture the bougainvillea brilliant in purple against the original white cocciopesto walls, or the intricate curves of a hundred year old olive tree gnarled with age.

 

Spend an afternoon under the branches of a tamerici tree at our beach club, painting the mesmerising glitter of the sea. Or cycle along the country lanes to discover a fine view of the Itrian landscape. In the company of an expert tutor you will find your technique improves at a gratifying pace.
