Escape to Andalucia in February with Jutta Gloeckner

It’s a recognised fact that some sunshine in winter restores the spirits.

An exciting opportunity to escape the confines of our studios in February, is on offer with this thrilling painting and drawing course taught by Jutta Gloeckner. 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, an experienced artist and teacher, is planning to challenge her group of developing painters, with our Mediterranean mountain landscape. Casa Rosa is set among mature gardens and olive orchards, with plants, streams, lake and mountains – the variety is sure to stimulate creativity. And for light relief, or if sheltering from unhelpful weather, she will use the joyous array of pottery, fabrics, art and architecture that Casa Rosa and its environs offer. 

In February, the evergreen olives, cypresses, citrus and viburnums will provide greenery and the countryside will be spectacularly scattered with the pink blossoms and 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.  

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 picturesque veranda. Dinner will be in the warmth of the wonderful “Salon”, the heart of Casa Rosa, where log fires burn cosily as required, and works of art decorate the walls. At the end of a day of energetic creativity, bedrooms offer relaxation, peace and luxurious comfort. 

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 guidance
