The Workshop - Watercolor.

Day 1: After waking up to the sounds of a new adventure and indulging in a traditional Nicaraguan breakfast, we will stroll to the Centro de Arte for an overview of the week to come. After, we will head out into the colorful streets of Granada where we will cover perspective and composition. Afternoon horse-drawn carriage ride through the city's hustle and bustle.

Day 2: Today we will temper the street scene on the slopes of Mombacho Volcano. Just 20 minutes outside of Granada, the air is cooler and nature abounds. At a private lodge nestled in the tropical forest we will paint the lush foliage and learn to emulate the dappled effect of the sun as it filters through the dense canopy. Afternoon cloud forest hike (1 hour) around one of Mombacho's four craters, where epiphytes and orchids are in abundance. And, you may possibly glimpse a howler monkey or two.

Day 3: From city to forest to countryside. Today we will travel along a charming country road where the locals make their living off the land. We are likely to come across farmers on horseback prodding their cattle, kids giggling and chasing after one another, and foraging free range pigs. As the sun passes overhead from one side of the road to the other, we will learn how to paint swiftly to achieve the essence of the scene. Afternoon swim in rural natural springs.

Day 4: Nicaragua is the Land of Lakes and Volcanoes so we must also paint water. For this we will head to Nicaragua's west coast and the mighty Pacific Ocean. Here, from a lovely beach-side pavilion we will capture the waves, the water birds and the palm trees. Afternoon optional activities include swimming, horseback riding, massage, 9-hole golf, and bird watching.

Day 5: Our final day will begin, once again, at the Centro de Arte. Today we will strive to complete our works of art, after which we will come together for a group critique. Afternoon boat ride on the sweet waters of Lake Nicaragua to a private island for rest and relaxation, or active kayaking, or perhaps some last minute sketching as the sun makes its way down to the horizon. We will share both a welcome dinner on the Sunday evening before the workshop and a farewell dinner on Friday.
