Retraites d’art

“I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”

Georgia O’Keeffe

Art Retreats in Gozo with Ta Óneira

Travel sparks inspiration when we most need it, and Ta Óneira offers you the space, within the perfect scenery, Gozo, to explode your creativity.  We give you the possibility of learning and improving different techniques while enjoying your holidays. You can combine the retreats with our English Courses, or any of the activities we offer at Ta Óneira. Remember, with us, you design your holidays. 

In our courses, we will use different techniques adapted to the level of the participants who can also choose the themes of their paintings. We will face the “fear of the blank page” and talk about inspiration techniques that will help us face the art block, and also study different images and select artistic styles that will help us develop our work.
