I'm really excited to have teamed up with Uptrek again to create a very unique retreat in the magnificent Atlas Mountains, near Agadir in Morocco, Africa. This retreat takes place in September 2024 and you can see more details via my website- Moroccan Art Retreat | Sarah Stokes Artist
With a jeep excursion to the fabulous National Sous-Mass National Bird and Wildlife Park and trips to a nearby fishing village, castle and traditional Moroccan market, we won't be short of inspiration for our paintings back at base.
