En Plein Air Residency in Pico island, middle of Atlantic Ocean.


En Plein Air Pico - June 2018

Pico island, middle of the Atlantic Ocean, vulcanic mountain, prestine lagoons, hundreds of shades of green with flowers perking from every orface, natural sea-pools, whales and dolphins and birds at viewing distance, caves and trails to explore, dark lava fields, over 300 craters visible at climbing the 2351 metre-high mountain... an artist paradise.

MiratecArts is supporting artists wishing to visit and work in Pico island. We have various programs throughout the year. For 2018, we are planning a specific program for PLEIN AIR painters; between 21 and 30th of june, for the low cost registration of 200€ / 250USD, our artistic director will provide a welcome dinner, a talk presentation about the island and the two neighbouring islands visitable for the day, take you to at least 5 locations (one per day) for you to explore and paint, and give you open-access to the MiratecArts Galeria Costa, a 20,000 square metre land (1Km walk from one end to the other) amidst vinyards, bush, local forest and coastal line.

You may also wish to come any other time of the year, but our organization is planning these dates as we find that sometimes it is great to be in a group. Also, end of your stay we have potential to do an event exhibiting your work in the center of the main town of Madalena.

Lets talk. Let´s plan. Let´s do arts on the highest peak of the mid-Atlantic North Ridge, Pico island (PIX airport reachable by www.sata.pt) If still interested, let´s continue the dialogue. Send email with your information or links to website as well as your questions; we can also suggested places for accomodations, etc. info@mirateca.com
