Good Place to Exercise and Learn to Paint?

Hi everybody.

I want to spend a month or two learning to paint and exercising intensely. I know, it’s kind of a random question but maybe someone here can help. Below a little more detail about what I’m looking for.


  • Natural or urban beauty
  • Cultural inspiration – art museum, for example
  • Some kind of non-academic visual art school would be ideal


  • Not a gym
  • Outdoor exercise is more enjoyable to me than indoor
  • Preferably not yoga
  • Never tried martial arts, but I’m open to it

If you have any suggestion please share!
