Manolo Jiménez Sáchez | Course 2019

Manolo will hold nothing back on this workshop and will eagerly share with you the principals of his own method “Conquistalacuarela”, as he himself has baptized it. Whatever your level of experience you are certain to thoroughly enjoy and learn from Manolo’s style of teaching.

He will, initially, identify the common concerns of the participants, conduct exercises based on those individual concerns while giving understandable theoretical explanations to expedite those concerns in his imitable easy going approach. Manolo has created a format of personalised set of exercises ,designed and structured so that you will be easily able to synthesise, simplify and achieve an extraordinary speed of your learning time. He will explain for you to know how to identify the appropriate mental mechanisms to be able to control watercolor with ease and imprint your own personal stamp upon all your paintings.

Our easy going programme is loosely based on having alternate days of painting within the studio and gardens of Las Orquideas and plein aire painting trips to some of the wonderful locations around Valencia, which are an artists delight.

Manolo Jiménez Sáchez & Dalvaro Art

Manolo Jiménez Sánchez | Workshop

Watercolours

Join us and Manolo Jiménez Sánches for a unique experience for a week of watercolor practise with this master of explanation and encouragement.

You really do not want to miss this golden opportunity, not only for the art but also to enjoy the fabulous garden of “Las Orquideas”, at what is probably their finest month of the floral year. The spectacular gardens, which were designed from the outset with the artist in mind, contain numerous quiet shady places amongst the terraces of geraniums, roses, bourganvillas and palm trees, an absolute wonderland of inspiration and relaxation, overlooking the town in the valley and beyond to the mountains of the Sierra Mariolas.

Itinerary

+ Information

This is a general guide to our workshop itinerary schedule.

Each of our painting workshops is different and the actual schedule is decided by each art tutor individually according to the needs of the group and course structure.

Generally we would go out painting plein air every other day that would be one day at Las Orquideas, either painting in the gardens or the studio. The following day would be a trip out, varying between short travelling distances, to local sites, medium distance, 20 to 50 minutes travelling and longer distances, about an hours drive.

A typical weeks itinerary for a painting workshop would be:

Complimentary transfer from airport to your accommodation at “Las Orquideas”, Dalvaro Art venue for painting workshops in the Valle D’Albaida, Valencia, Spain. Please check timings for pick-ups.

After breakfast, meet the tutor. Days instruction in the studio or around the gardens. Lunch and evening meal at Las Orquideas.

Breakfast followed by our first trip out, usually to one of our fabulous mid distance locations, as shown below, as decided by the tutor and the needs of the group. Lunch may be at a restaurant in the chosen location or we may return to Las Orquideas.

Leisurely breakfast followed by a day at the venue, in the studio or the gardens.

Slightly earlier breakfast today as we prepare for one of our longer distance trips.

Day in the gardens of the venue or finishing work in the studio.

Final painting day so a local painting location today and back to Las Orquideas for lunch. Late session in the studio finalising the weeks work.

Breakfast then your complimentary transfer to the airport. Please check timings for drop-offs.

The above is just a guide to our schedule, as items outside of our control can change and some groups or tutors prefer to spend more time in our magnificent studio and gardens.

What we include for this workshop?

  • A seven night stay at Las Orquideas, the Art Retreat venue for Dalvaro Art Vacations.
  • Shared or single accommodation in twin or double rooms. All rooms are private and air conditioned.
  • Full use of purpose built art studio with your own space.
  • Complimentary airport transfers.
  • Daily art instruction from Manolo Jiménez Sánchez.
  • Evening meal on arrival day. Breakfast on departure day. Three “magnifico” meals on every course day.
  • Free Dalvaro Art carry bag and artists apron.
  • Early booking discount.

Airport transfers new info:

We offer complimentary airport transfers from Valencia and Alicante.
We like to be as flexible as possible on these, while understanding that flight arrival times are in the hands of the airlines and not the artists coming to us. At the same time we have to consider the journey times between the airports and our venue, not forgetting, of course, our driver’s hours on the road.
Therefore we cannot give precise timings, as we have no way of telling far in advance the arrival times or the chosen airport of our art course participants.
We will do our best to meet you as near to your arrival time as possible. The absolute maximum waiting time would be under 4 hours. Usually this would be much less, average time is 30 minutes, most of the time we are there waiting for you.
Obviously this is not always within our control, due to flight delays etc.
For departures, our aim is for two morning departures from the venue. The first would be early and the second before midday.
