Win a Painting Holiday in Portugal


Your chance to win a painting holiday at an inspiring and picturesque riverside location, courtesy of Portugal’s Figs on the Funcho.

Wake-up every morning to Algarve blue skies on this six-night riverside painting holiday. The spectacular, scenic surroundings will inspire your creativity and spur you on to improve your art skills.

Surrounded by nature’s bounty, you won’t be at a loss when choosing your landscape art scenes.

The painting workshops are held outdoors on the riverside deck; the lessons led by an experienced and enthusiastic artist and tutor, Tracy-Jane Pooler. She is passionate about sharing her experience and will help you develop your drawing and painting skills in a wide variety of media.

Figs on the Funcho has teamed up with Artists & Illustrators, a magazine for artists and art lovers, to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a six-night painting holiday worth £1,000. The break will take place in June 2021 and includes daily art lessons from a fully qualified art tutor.

You’ll explore various mediums, learn new techniques and experiment with your landscape painting; all from a scenic riverside terrace with un-interrupted river and country views.

If you feeling energetic, Cheryl will take you walking to explore the countryside. Practicing the art of seeing and noticing whilst outdoors walking can be useful to improve the quality of your artwork.

Not only will your practice improve but you’ll also enjoy the healing effects of nature, with guided walks and pool-side relaxation available in your free time.
