This distinctive possibility of visiting artists’ studios is possible thanks to friends and contacts. We are conscious of this and for this reason we wish to be respectful and grateful to these artists. We understand that you who will take this special weekend style of trip are art lovers and appreciate the time a painter will share with you.
This is neither a workshop nor necessarily a trip for professional painters. It’s open to those who enjoy a conversation with a local artist, listen and share with them their different technics. They all speak English.
The three options are different and therefore interesting from the point of view of tourism and culture. Our aim is to give customers a pleasant and unforgettable stay close to the artist and his work.
It will be combined together with Granada’s main historic sites and old neighborhoods, local products tasting and lunch at charming good Spanish cuisine restaurants.
Three Different Artists – Three Different Styles – Three Different Moments
Arrival and transfer to hotel.
You will start your weekend visiting a studio located in a residential area in the countryside near Sierra Nevada Mountains in Granada. The fact of travelling your first day on a small road lined with a pine forest in a nature reserve will immediately help you to relax and start enjoying your “getaway moment”.
The visit to the workshop will provide a visual and sensory session. The artist will show the characteristics of his works, made by using powder of precious stones thus achieving interesting holographic effects.
Your lunch will be at open terrace location. The restaurant is situated in the outstanding San Nicolas square, in front of the Alhambra of Granada. You will take pleasure of its spectacular views in a cozy Andalusian artistic atmosphere.
After lunch feel free to choose between a guided tour through Granada old town and old neighborhoods such as Albayzin or if you prefer, you can take the option of visiting a XV century olive oil press, and see how an Extra Virgin Olive Oil is processed and taste its products.
In the morning a guided tour to the Alhambra. A must to see in Granada
Lunch at Carmen de San Miguel, “nueva cocina Andaluza ”(new Andalusian cuisine). An excellent good quality fresh products restaurant, with great views. At our own discretion it may be changed to another relevant restaurant locally known for its food and spectacular views.
The restaurants will be placed within The Alhambra complex, to enable you enjoy walking while getting there.
In the afternoon you experience another Andalusian artist painting workshop
The artist studio is located in the heart of the city, in an old building next to the Jewish quarter called Realejo
Right in the centre of Granada, the studio is near the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel in the old town.
The walk to the studio will take us about 10 minutes from the city Town Hall.
The studio owner is an Andalusian artist who investigates new forms and techniques of printing and engraving on paper. Visitors can watch and interact in the process, which uses traditional methods of printing on handmade paper.
After the artist studio visit enjoy at your own rhythm your free afternoon and night
If you wish Michi Moments local person can suggest you some restaurants and tapas bars
Last painting studio experience
This last day you will go to the artist studio which is located in a family house surrounded by a Moorish garden and Andalusian style
The house is next to one of the most iconic parks in the center of Granada. As the studio is spotted in the center of the city, you will have the opportunity of seeing how the private residential houses located near the river look like
The studio belongs to two young artists participating in major art projects in Spain and abroad.
This last day we suggest you walk around and discover yourself a place where to have lunch – follow your feelings!
After your lunch and good wine, if you want to go the Spanish way – take a siesta!
Afterwards, your private driver will take you to a local winery near the city. You will see how the wine is made and processed, taste and savour their different wines. You will also have the opportunity of elaborating our own wine!
