Maramures

 

Art Holidays Romania provides art courses in Maramures, the beautiful and relatively undiscovered north western area of Transylvania

“In Europe you can barely find a place where ancient traditions are so respected as in north-western Romania, where the customs and domestic universe remain unchanged”. Romania Travel

Lonely Planet listed Transylvania at Number One of the best places in the world to travel in 2016 and National Geographic named Maramures as one of best European destinations in 2015.

The house itself is situated on a hill at the edge of the village of Cupseni, in Lapus County, surrounded by hills which are either forested or used for agricultural land.  There is a 20 minute walk into the village where there are still to be seen local people in traditional garb and horse-drawn carts. You will be enchanted by the village traditional wooden church dedicated to St Elijah (“Sf Ilie”) build in XVIII century.

Fresh farm food is delivered to the house and our wonderful cook Raveca will delight you with savoury traditional dishes.

A different tutor provides tuition each week, and there will be different themes and media to choose from, often in the same week.  

In a typical week, five hours of tuition daily will be provided for four days.
There will be two outings, which take up much of the day, to explore this mythical realm and its UNESCO sites. There are plenty of opportunities for sketching and painting on these trips.

The courses cater for painters at all levels and the numbers are restricted to maximise individual tuition. Non painters are also welcome to enjoy the wonderful surroundings.

This is our second year and we hope to be as succesfull as 2016 when we had with the us the wonderful artist David Caldwell.

Please have a look and enjoy our last year exhibition.
