Art Safari’s creative adventures in Africa to Morocco
Colours of the Bazaar – Essaouira
7th to 14th November 2014 with Karen Pearson
New Morocco itinerary for November 2014.
Escape for a few days painting in colourful Morocco! Breathe a sigh of relief – this is an Art Safari with few animal as we explore vibrant Marrakech and the brightly coloured fishing town of Essaouira with our sketchbooks.
We spend our first day and night in bustling Marrakech, we are greeted by art tutor Karen and our knowledgeable local guide.
Essaouira is a perfect example of a late 18th century fortified town. We will savour the Moroccan autumn, spending time in the medina soaking in the atmosphere sketching and painting from some of the town’s most enchanting viewpoints.
Essaouira’s medina is a miniature labyrinth of craft-laden streets, colourful carpets and the famous blue woodwork on doors in the stone arabesque arches, windows, boats, wheelbarrows; in short, anything that can be decorated blue, is blue – making for contrasting and exciting street paintings.
We will discover Portuguese, French and Berber architecture here and sketch at the vibrant and bustling port as fishermen bring in their catch. We will also take a trip to a local village and sketch the market.
Before supper take a stroll around the ramparts as the sun is setting to work up an appetite for delicious tagine.
We return to Marrakech for our last night in Morocco, spending time painting at the tranquil ‘Jardin Majorelle’ and exploring the souks.
