Yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in this activity. Personally, it was a great experience. I found myself losing track of time. The small, intimate group environment allows the participants to enroll in the activity as well as feel comfortable asking the host questions and engaging with others. Hugo, the host, was very friendly and helpful, making the entire class relax and a great time. As an activity, it can be done by anyone. Either if you are attending alone, in a small group or a pair, I recommend. It's an amazing way to have a great time exploring the details of Porto architecture by painting it. Even if you have no major prior experience in this painting technique, Hugo will guide you calmly and the end result will certainly be amazing. I went by myself, and I couldn't recommend it more. It was a lovely afternoon with Hugo and the other guests.
Hopefully, I will come back soon.
Thank you, Hugo, for the great time!

This was such a lovely experience. Hugo is a real gentleman and was so patient in his teaching. I am a complete beginner and I actually came away with a pretty good painting (if I do say so myself!). My husband and I did this together and it was just a really lovely way to spend a few hours in Porto. We would both highly recommend this experience!

We had an amazing time, went with our whole family, including my parents in their 60’s and my 6 year old daughter. Everyone had the best time, it was a perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon in Porto. Our watercolors turned out great!! Hugo was a helpful and patient, and he has many of his beautiful works around the studio for purchase as well. Highly recommend booking this experience!! Thanks Hugo!!

Amazing experience. We loved the watercoloring and meeting new people. The studio was such a warm and welcoming environment. Hugo was a great teacher and I felt I learnt a lot during the session. We have now found a new love for watercolour paintings and hope to continue learning at home.

What a fantastic artist and experience! Hugo is so warm and friendly, he makes you feel so comfortable and able to give this a go, even if you've never tried watercolor (or any other art) before.
This was a really relaxing and engrossing couple of hours and we all ended up with a watercolor that we weren't ashamed of 😅.

Highly recommend Hugo and his fantastic watercolor sessions!

Hugo was amazing with our watercolor vlass. He was very accommodating to our limited schedule availability, extremely personable with our two younger children, and communication was great beforehand to help personalize our experience. Highly recommended!
