What makes a painting holiday with us so special?
First of all, it is a wonderful way to relax, and enjoy the lovely Greek way of life from an active angle. While painting you will probably see a new side of things, challenge yourself, your talent and curiosity. The course gives you plenty of time to explore. Any requests you have we will try to answer, or help you out, may they be of artistic or practical nature. We think you will meet new friends and love to share the secret of our little paradise with you. Partners will find there is a lot to do and discover.
Dont worry about talents or shortcomings, gentle guidance will bring out the best of you, beginners will be surprised and stimulated, advanced will find a sparring partner and able to share views and discover new.
All this against the setting of the Ionian sea, the very same one where Odysseus sailed, his island Ithaka can be seen on a clear day against the horizon! Daily temperatures are not too hot as we are situated on the northwest of greece, opposite Italy.
The painting courses have a duration of five days (no classes on Saturday and sunday), or a shorter course of 3 days. Classes will be ± 3 1/2 hours every morning. The rest of the day is free, for other activities, continue painting and to enjoy the surroundings. The group will be limited to ± five people so that individual attention can be given to everyone.
You can also organize your own group and contact us to find a suitable schedule. We have basic study materials e.g. pens, charcoal, soft pencils (2B or 4B) and/or pastels. For painters we have oils, acrylics, watercolours, canvas, board or paper and brushes. We will provide drawing boards, white spirit and stools. If you want more advanced materials, please bring your own extra’s.
