We aim to encourage the best results, in every painting



We are a membership based watercolour workshop group of mostly-retired expatriate resident watercolour artists meeting every week in a private home in central Agadir. The particular emphases in our workshop are directed towards learning and practising the foundation principles of abstract and loose watercolour painting. We understand that all watercolour art concerns decisions that are made in connection with the process that flows through the artist.

We communicate together in English and French.
Watercolour workshop membership is by invitation only and is free of charge. We have our workshop by invitation only to ensure that people who attend are driven and committed towards being good at their art and are not time wasters who do things on a whim, get fed up and drop out because they were looking for something more akin to a social club. And also to enhance the overall experience of all the members of our workshop. So there we have it... we only talk watercolour painting.

About those paints...

Artists' quality watercolour paints such as W&N Professional, Daniel Smith, M. Graham, Blockx, Holbein, Old Holland, Schmincke Horadam and MaimeriBlu are not available in shops in Morocco. If you plan on painting in Morocco, it might be an idea to make a list in advance and bring everything that you need from your own country (be sure to pack ANY tubes of paint in checked-in luggage or they may be confiscated by Airport Security if found in hand luggage.) We have an extensive range of professional watercolour paints: M. Graham, Winsor & Newton and Daler-Rowney. Please contact us if you would like to have assistance with your requirements.

The Souk in Agadir
The Beach at Taghazout

Once every month, we plan to go on a one-day field trip to locations in and around Agadir. These will include places such as the local Souk al Ahad, Agadir sea-front, Tamraght and Taghazout. These trips are typically from 10am to 5pm and are a good opportunity to sketch and paint outdoors in a friendly, group setting. We also plan on periodically having mid-week visits (when there is less public around) to Taroudant (and other destinations where we can paint the local scenery and also extend our friendship together as workshop members.
