Into the forest we go, with a pencil, a paper, and some crayons. It is a CREATIVE AND THERAPEUTIC EXPERIENCE and a refreshing break from our technology-filled, overstimulated world. Throughout a slow and contemplative WALK IN STUNNING PROTECTED LANDSCAPES, we will be directing our attention to the natural world's fascinating patterns, enchanting colors, and mesmerizing shapes. Every step we take, countless details show up and reveal nature's abundant creativity and intelligent designs. We will take a gentle approach to DRAWING AND PAINTING, in which no prior art experience is required. Our intention will be to focus on the process instead of the outcome and keep free of expectations. That way, and while surrounded by so much beauty, we will create an amazing opportunity to EXPLORE OUR ARTISTIC SIDE in an unrestrained way.
Hey! My name is João - like most guys in Portugal ;) - and I was born and raised in Lisbon. My nature tour guide journey started when, after I studied Biology and Communication, I came into contact with the scientifically proven concept of Ecotherapy. I felt deeply inspired and, because "happiness is only real when shared”, I decided to put my skills into work to create Breathe Portugal® - a project that aims to promote healing experiences while connecting people to nature. In the last 3 years, through Breathe's unique tours, I had the pleasure to meet hundreds of wonderful people from many different cultures and from 42 different countries. All of this makes me realize we are one big human family!
Round trip transportation from Lisbon to Costa da Caparica Fossile Cliff
Drawing and Painting materials
We will cross the Tagus River through the iconic 25th of April bridge and reach the unique landscape of Arriba Fóssil da Costa de Caparica. The unusual shapes of this fossil cliff can be seen in their full splendor at dusk, as they acquire the sunset’s golden tones. This woodland is a botanical reserve, dominated by native flowers, stone pines, and mastic-trees.
