Painting Holidays

At Cortijo Las Salinas we run regular painting and creative retreats for individuals, art groups or corporate groups.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist Steffi will help you to develop confidence and a personal direction in your artwork as you paint in the warm sunshine surrounded by spectacular scenery, landscapes and sunsets. The areas chosen to paint are always inspiring, very peaceful with fantastic light, with plenty of time to paint in the large, bright, fully equipped studio and are designed for everyone, mixed ability groups are no problem. If you are an experienced painter you can paint independently if preferred and the format can be flexible to suit individual requirements.  Non painting partners are also welcome where they can sit by the pool or go for a swim, take a walk or just relax with a book.

You will be amazed to see what you can paint and how you heal when you drop expectations and allow the creative process to unfold. Deep down we are all artists who have whatever it takes to express our inner world through art, the only thing holding us back is the limitations we place upon ourselves.


Art is a therapy in itself and the artistic and creative processes are crucial to our holistic well-being.  Intuitive Art, sometimes called Intuitive Process Painting, is a very powerful spiritual and creative practice. By clearing the mind and painting without an ego you allow the piece to naturally emerge as the painting’s journey unfolds, changing with every layer. It is a very exciting way to paint – oh and the use of a paintbrush is kept to the absolute minimum! Hands and mark making tools are much more fun! We will also be incorporating some creative writing into the programme, which can help the creative process along.  So no need to be afraid of that paintbrush or blank canvas.

We also have a daily morning yoga session and evening gong bath or meditation for relaxation and a good nights sleep.

Our next creative retreat is planned for 4 – 11 June 2022 and will be including cookery sessions with Steve and Agi, the cortijo chefs.  So it is time to unlock your creative potential and enjoy cookery classes and demos, olive oil tasting and lots more, book today as places are limited.   Investment is 1250 euros per person and for shared accommodation there is a 200 euros per person discount.
