Painting, Authentic Adventures, Gozo, Maltese Islands
Learning to paint doesn’t require a spectacular view, but on Gozo, a small Mediterranean island near Malta, the view comes with the course. The Authentic Adventures painting workshop here takes a group of painters (usually about ten per cohort) around the island over the course of a week, painting the sights and receiving demonstrations and personal instruction from one of the company’s four tutors. The days tend to be casual and idyllic, picnicking at ancient hillside chapels, exploring the local market and painting the Mediterranean Sea before diving in. From $1,800 for 7 nights; 44-14/5382-3328; authenticadventures.co.uk.
