Painting in Andalucia in February – what better idea?
An exciting opportunity to escape the confines of our usual studios, we offer this exciting painting and drawing course with new teacher to Casa Rosa Art. Generally sunny and definitely far brighter than February in the UK, a course of painting and drawing in the sun of Andalucia is just the Vitamin D boost we all need.
Jutta Gloeckner, an experienced teacher, is planning a variety of challenges for her group of developing painters, from still life to landscape using the joyous array of pottery, fabrics, art and architecture that Casa Rosa and its environs offer. Set in a landscape of Mediterranean plants, streams, lake and mountains the variety is sure to stimulate creativity.
Should the weather catch us out, there are adequate facilities for sheltered painting with a spacious studio, a wrap around veranda and, if still not warm enough, there is the main salon of the house where there is a log fire and central heating. Lunch is usually held outside in the sun on the veranda.
In February the evergreen olives, cypresses, citrus and viburnums will provide greenery and the countryside will be spectacularly scattered with the pink blossoms and the contrasting black trunks of the almond trees. The mountains will provide their usual scenic backdrop, with a colour palette that changes with the time of day from silver through pink to deep navy blue.

About Jutta Gloeckner
I am an artist and art teacher working in London, England. I studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London and the Art Akademie in Dusseldorf, Germany. I’ve taught on the Foundation Course at the Byam Shaw School of Art and am currently teaching advanced classes in adult education atthe Richmond Adult Community College and the MacBeth Centre in West London. I have shown my work in London, Germany, and USA.
My work centres on natural environments and the man-made in a simplified form verging on the abstract.
In my teaching, I try to familiarise myself with each student’s work and aim to help them develop and discover their individual style using their preferred media. I avoid a prescriptive style of teaching and I prefer to encourage and nurture personal enthusiasms. I will demonstrate and even correct students’ if they seem to need it.
I like to suggest a theme, usually taking inspiration from a range of artists. The group will be encouraged to work independently and will come together for guidanceJutta Gloeckner
