Description of Art course in Romania

Head to beautiful Transylvania to join an art course in Romania's stunning medieval city of Brasov. Receive expert tuition from a professional artist, helping you to become more competent and confident in your painting abilities.

This course is an intensive introduction to drawing and painting. It is is aimed particularly at beginners and intermediates, although competent artists will also benefit from learning in a new way, in a new location and with different people. The course takes place in an airy studio in the medieval centre of Brasov, although there may be times when outdoor painting is embraced too.

Towering mountains and stunning forests surround Brasov, making this a perfect location for natural inspiration. You will be in Romania for one week, with the course taking place for 4 days, with 6 hours of instruction each day. During the other days you can join a half-day trip to Dracula's Castle and take a tour around Brasov. The rest of your time is free to enjoy this wonderful location.

All art materials are included in the course. The teacher will adapt her guidance to the specific experience of individuals. The teacher is a passionate international artist with over 10 years of experience teaching art to all ages and abilities.

The course covers:

- Drawing techniques

- Different types of painting, from naturalistic to abstract
- 24 hours of training over one week

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

• For each traveller that goes away with us, we voluntarily plant a tree with our charity partners Tree Aid. Trees are planted in rural African communities and local people are taught how to sustainably use the trees to improve their economic situation - whilst also benefiting the planet.
• Where food is provided, it is locally produced and sourced, reducing food miles, supporting local industry and minimising single-use plastic
• As a traveller you will learn about the importance of reducing our carbon footprint, both pre-departure and through your volunteer project
• Accommodation is in the centre of Brasov so that participants can access all amenities by foot rather than taxi or private transport
• Where possible, and without jeopardising safety or quality, transfers are done on a shared basis to reduce carbon emissions
• Save £50 if you arrive to Brasov by train

Environment

Supporting local wildlife
We work with a bear sanctuary and dog shelter close to Brasov to offer our support to local wildlife conservation. We encourage participants to visit the bear sanctuary as tourists to learn more about the fate of bears in Eastern Europe.

Protecting the world
We are passionate about encouraging our travellers to be kind to the environment as they travel. Each participant receives advice about how to care for the environment whilst they are away. This includes water usage, how to avoid single use plastic, and electricity usage.

We insist that all participants bring their own water bottles when they travel with us, and clean free water is always available. We have even created a water bottle that can be purchased before departure and encourage people to use it at all stages of their journey including at the airport, on flights and whilst on their project. We are striving for all of our projects to be free of single use plastic.

Community

Meeting local needs
We have been running programmes in and around Brasov since 2000 and have long-standing relationships with local people. We try to spread the employment opportunities around local people, and employ a representative, a teacher, transfer drivers and other helpers to make our projects possible.

The project also helps the local economy. Our participants spend money on food and leisure; we pay rent to a local landlord and we arrange day trips and meals out in local attractions. In addition, we donate money regularly to the various charitable projects that we work with in response to their needs.

Cultural sensitivity
Our pre-departure briefing includes a special session entitled ‘Responsible Tourism’ where we discuss cultural differences and sensitivities as well as advising volunteers on appropriate conduct. People a briefed on what is considered polite in terms of eating, greeting and dressing. It is encouraged that all volunteers learn some Romanian prior to departure, and they get a helping hand whilst out there as well.
