Wellness & art in Salzburg
Wellness & art

Treat yourself to an artistic break from everyday life and dive into the fascinating watercolour painting under expert guidance. The symbiosis between untamed nature and carefully cultivated landscapes around Saalbach provide a spectacular backdrop for wellness in a creative fashion and will inspire you to artistic heights.

Aquarellness is an exciting journey into nature and into yourself: feeling the sensibility of the countryside - enjoying nature - being open - practicing "seeing" - finding yourself - these are themes of every Aquarellness course. Each day starts with a detailed theme discussion. Themes, which are chosen according to the season, should provide points of reference - the artistic realization is unique for each individual. All necessary materials such as watercolour paintboxes, paintbrushes in varying sizes, watercolour blocks, stools etc. will be provided. Painting will take place 4-5 hours each day, depending on the weather either in the spacious studio or outside, where painting excursions will take you to Lake Zell, up to the Pasterze, the foot of the Grossglockner and to the glacier reserve lakes in Kaprun, among others.
