14 days / 13 night creative journey at
Chiang Mai Narittaya Resort & Spa
Drawing and painting of typical Siamese motives
Explore the ancient Asian culture of the old Lanna Kingdom in the north of Thailand. You will meet the old times of farming life in villages which have not changed much over the times. You will observe the busy action on a hill tribe market and visit an elephant training camp and a few Buddhist temples, all of this located in the beautiful landscape of Northern Thailand.
You can study (drawing or painting or sketching): landscape, architecture, sculpture, animals and people.
You will stay in the Narittaya Resort & Spa, a calm resort in the countryside of Chiang Mai. Here you can relax, recharge your energy and be focused on your creative intentions.
You will have a 10 day workshop of 4 hours. One day at the resort and one day alternated in the field. You will have many different impressions of typical Thai lifestyle on your excursions and enough time to catch them with your artwork.
You will work mostly with pencils and charcoal for drawing and with aquarelle colours for painting. We can provide these materials. But everything is possible; you can bring your own working material and tools as well.
