Thank you for chosing my Painting the Parks course! I’m Lucy, English teacher and arts workshop facilitator, with over 10 years experience in arts education. In this taster workshop I will take you through creating your own painting of the Alfonso Xii Monument, step-by-step. This statue sits within one the most well-known parts of one of Madrid’s most famous parks, Parque del Retiro. Don’t worry if you have never painted before, as I have broken the painting down into easy-to-complete stages, and there will also be the chance to learn about the monument, Retiro park as well as painting techniques and vocabulary
