Artist Retreat / Workshop 2019
July 19 - July 26
2019 marks the seventh summer that Plein Air Portugal welcomes professional, advanced or intermediate artists to create in a part of the world removed from time.
Casa da Levada, located in the hamlet of Travanca do Monte, serves as our home base. This well established B & B is just steps away from breathtaking working sites. Artists enjoy accommodations in a lovely 300 year-old home. The hamlet's former one-room schoolhouse, a short walk down the hill from the Casa, serves as a studio and gathering place for light meals.
Northern Portugal’s landscape of endless mountains, terraced vineyards, granite buildings, sweeping skies and vistas offer rich subject matter for drawing, painting and photography.
Plein Air Portugal is offering an add-on option of 4 days in the medieval castle town of Obidos. In the midst of fruit orchards and close to a large seaside lagoon, Obidos is 80km north of Lisbon. Our B&B, an historic home, is located next to the castle wall and within walking distance of town sites, restaurants and painting and photography settings. Taxi and bus service is close by for independent exploration.
