Art and Culture in the Balearic Islands: Painting Mallorca with Meredith Nemirov

Painting, Drawing and Hiking Retreats
on the Island of Mallorca, Spain

With Jorge and Meredith and the Ridgway Gallery Workshops Join us as we return to La Serranía nestled in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains near Pollensa, Mallorca. This is our third trip to paint the Mediterranean sea and landscape. We feel at home with the mountain view but coming from land-locked Colorado, we are so excited to be close to the water. For our week of painting and drawing, we will focus on the trees and abundant variety of Mediterranean plant life, as well as the larger view of sea, sky and rocky coastline.

Walking is another one of our passions. It is a great way to explore and experience a new environment —always with sketchbook in hand.

The history and culture of the Iberian Peninsula is a topic close to our hearts as this is Jorge’s ancestry. We have been traveling to Spain regularly since 2000 and we want to share it with you over a glass of Tempranillo!

We have combined these three passions into two separate workshops.
