wildlife art course was based in Segura de la Sierra, Andalucia,
Spain with Art
Safari. We're based on a 1,600-acre private estate in the mountains
of Andalucia. It's one of Spain's best kept secrets, well off the
tourist trail with no noise or light pollution. Hot in summer but
tempered by cool mountain breezes.

sometimes a change of scene and subject can open up whole new avenues

experienced artists looking for a new challenge.

The Sierra de Segura Natural Park is Spain’s largest protected area
with mountains, beautiful valleys, lakes and rivers. The Park we’re
staying in is a Special Protection Area for migratory birds. The
wide diversity of species in the Natural Park ranges from the tiny
and exquisite ‘viola cazorliense’ (Cazorla violet) to wild boar,
eagles, vultures, mountain goats, wild cats and deer.
exceptionally picturesque village of Hornos de Segura also provides
us with stone courtyards, castles and far-reaching views to paint.
While the wildlife can't always be relied upon to co-operate, there's
so much to see here that you won't be short of inspiration. And
anyway, the breath-taking scenery is a pretty good alternative.
with year-round sunshine it's the perfect combination for an unforgettable
art safari, with glorious views, wildlife observation from tree
hides, bird-watching, nature trails, and forest and mountain tracks.
Our traditional stone Andalusian farmhouse is set in the heart of
the Sierra de Segura Natural Park and is wonderfully comfortable
and furnished to a high standard. It is for our exclusive use with
a heated outdoor swimming pool and terraces for tapas and relaxation
between painting sessions.

"A couple of years ago I was struggling so much with my art
that I was considering giving up altogether. Then I came to one
of your classes and it changed everything. I've never looked back."
