Morocco nestles on the northwestern tip of Africa, separated from the rest of the continent by the towering Atlas Mountains and the vast Sahara desert. Its rich culture is a blend of Arab, Berber, European and African influences. Morocco’s vibrancy, exoticism and colour, have long been a source of great inspiration for artists throughout history from Delacroix to Matisse and the Orientalists.

Join us on this amazing journey to the heart of Marrakesh Venture into the dark, narrow alleyways of the Medina, with its endless mosaic of souks, alluring scents and brilliant colours.  We will spend the days exploring the perfumed gardens, listening to the sounds of musicians, visit contemporary African art galleries and paint in the Jardin Majorelle – all the while recording our memories with daily en plain air painting sessions. In the evening we will dine in fabulous restaurants and be guided on a sumptuous food tour to the central square, Jemaa el-Fna – a thousand year old carnival, with its dozens of food stalls, musicians, fortune-tellers, acrobats and snake charmers.
Having spent the last few days exploring the chaos and heat of Marrakech we will head out to the quiet of the desert, for a stay at La Pause.
A true haven of peace and a little bit of luxury. Re-born from a ruined house discovered on a desert island, a sort of an end of the world… carefully preserved for  artists and true wild nature lovers.

Here we will have time to focus on our painting with three days of uninterrupted creative time. In the mornings Dominique will lead guided lessons en plain air, then the afternoons are free to further your works, take a camel ride, swim in the pool or just relax and read your book.
