Painting and drawing on the Danish North Sea coast

Sat. 18th August - Sat. 25th August 2018


Thy is the name of the western part of the island Vendsyssel-Thy which forms the north of of Denmark above the Limfjord. In 2007, the western part of Thy was established as the first national Park in Denmark by the Danish Ministery of the Environment.

The area is characterised by wide, open landscapes and an unspoiled natural environment. The North Sea, the wind and light make the horizon seem endless  - throughout the year.

Thy is the land between the sea and the fjord. A place where the light assumes a special power. Here you will find a wealth of impressions, which attract many vistors year after year. The coastline here is extraordinary and offers stunning scenery  with fjord, sea and miles of sandy beaches, beautiful dunes, coastal shrubs and marked hiking trails.

 

 

This year, Thy will again be the venue of a portrait and nude drawing course that attracts both local and German artists. 

Participants are accommodated in the pitoresque Skibstedgaard manor, which was built in 1650 and is still a working farm with cattle, chickens, geese and dogs. It is located in an untouched spot directly at the shore of the Limfjord amid windmills and burial mounds dating from the Bronze Age. This is where the huge fleet assembled by Canute the Great anchored before starting out on its conquest of England in 1015.

The old stables of the estate have been completely remodelled and now house four large apartments each on two floors with southfacing terraces. The beach is just a few steps away and all the rooms have a panoramic view of the Skibsted Fjord an Nissum Bay.

Each apartment has satellite TV and and free wireless internet access.

 

 

Costs for accommodation, half board and tuition in apartment with terrace, kitchen and bathroom: € 925 p.p.
