Sketching in Sardinia with Sonia Hawes

03 June 2023
7-night residential course

Sketchtrrips offers a unique 7-night residential art course on the island of Sardinia with resident artist and tutor Sonia Hawes

Join Sonia on the northern tip of this unique island which boasts idyllic colourful towns, fabulous food, hilltop forts and magical beaches. A genuine jewel in the middle of the Mediterranean the island has a turbulent history which is highlighted by its sense of independence from mainland Italy.

During the art course, you will be sketching en Plein Air with pencils, pencils, charcoal and watercolour and using paint, textiles and paper to translate these sketches into alternative artwork during tutorial sessions in the studio space. Their dedicated workspace is available 24hrs a day so you can continue to evolve your work outside of tutorial sessions, giving you the freedom to experiment with newly discovered techniques. Sonia will supply a materials list before the course and will bring some of her own materials just in case you run out or want to try something new.

During our 3-5 Plein Air outings, Sketchtrips provide a packed lunch if you are out all day, and they always work at a site not far from a cafe or loo. During the tutorial or mixed sessions days, they provide a buffet lunch. 

So give yourself a licence to immerse yourself in the luxury of being catered for by their amazing staff who provide x7 buffet-style breakfasts (a hot option is always available), x6 lunches (either freshly made rolls to individual specifications or deliciously varied buffets to suit all tastes) and x7 two-course evening meals with wine. The chef uses local ingredients whenever possible and incorporates the culinary traditions of the area into the menus. They can cater for all dietary requirements from coeliac, vegetarian, and vegan to any unusual allergies.

Your accommodation will be of a 4 or 5-star quality, and the team do their best to accommodate you in a bedroom which suits your needs.

Their ensuite rooms book very quickly, so if having your own bathroom on holiday is a priority, don't delay, book now! 

Sketchtrips don’t provide flights but they can help advise you on which ones to book and they provide private transport to /from the airport at scheduled times as well as to the Plein Air sketching /painting sites.
