Finca El Cerrillo is a beautiful boutique hotel situated close to the traditional white villages of Canillas de Albaida and Competa, in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara, in the beautiful Axarquia area, just an hour’s drive from Malaga in Southern Spain.
"Brigid Collins is an outstanding tutor providing inspirational practical demonstrations, thoughtful guidance on how artists could respond to this evocative landscape and gentle technical support. She references a rich mix of contemporary artists’ work and encourages participants to develop new skills of observing and recording in a wide range of media. The studio becomes a place of diverse experimentation and the course also facilitates opportunities to go out and work in the stunning surroundings. I cannot recommend Brigid highly enough and El Cerrillo is a creative sanctuary which makes for a very special art holiday."
- Sarah Knox, participant in 2015 and 2016
