  • Description


    We are a place for art lovers of all levels. Our association is a small team of art coordinators where we have art sessions in the main room of a residential apartment. Ideally art sessions have about 4 / 5 participants.
    We also work in schools, libraries etc in Lisbon.
    Art activities include drawing, music and creative writing.
    I am an artist - simply illustrations + paintings + am an arts coordinator = drawing and painting workshops.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Participants are invited / encouraged to participate in the art activities both in the house and when we arrange art activities in schools hospitals, hopmes of senior citizens. Ideally the team to run art activities is made up of beginners with a fresh outlook and energy mixed with participants with more experience.
    We speak both Portuguese and English so u would have the chance to learn / improve either language.
    The apartment is used as art studios and art equipment - pens, paints brushes, is pooled so participants r very welcome to do art work.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lisbon has a mixture of old time traditional neighbourhood and a new vibrant nomad scene. It has a nice balance of ages, and is quite open minded. Compared to most European capitals Lisbon is generally quite moderate. The city centre is 10 minutes metro ride / 40 mins walk. On public transport 1 hour south there r some lovely beaches and 1 hour west some lovely country side.
