Painting and sailing holiday in Greece
For Beginners and All Levels
1st-8th June 2018 and 8th-15th June 2018
After a fantastic painting holiday in Greece in September 2017 we will be holding another two in June. We have teamed up with the renowned company, Ocean Elements who are ABTA protected to provide a water colour art week at the beautiful paradise-like Leda Beach Club, situated on the Pelion Peninsula in one of the most naturally beautiful regions in Greece! With a secluded beach, swimming pool, sea views from every corner and Ocean Elements water sports centre. The Leda hotel is only 300 metres from the quaintly traditional Horto village.
Beth and Vicki like to run a very relaxed class to inspire you to find the joy that painting brings and where better to do that than at this beautiful little resort in Pelion. As there are two of us teaching, you will benefit from individual tutoring. We will spend some of the time painting outside (in the shade) to gather inspiration from our beautiful surroundings and showing you the necessary techniques to help you on your way and for more advanced artists we will be on hand to guide you at any time. All water colour materials are provided, but you may bring your own if you prefer. We are happy for you to use other mediums and can help you with oils, acrylics, pastels and pencil, but you will need to bring your own materials if you want to paint in other mediums. Classes will run from 9.30am to 1.30pm for five of your seven days and you are welcome to either carry on painting later into the afternoon or to use the rest of your day to enjoy the weather, beach and water sports which are included in the price (including all water sports equipment). We will also be experimenting with these in the afternoons, which you are all very welcome to watch for some extra entertainment!
Meals are available at the hotel or there are a few bars and restaurants a short walk from the hotel. We have found some fantastic restaurants with good quality, home cooked food. eating out is very reasonable in Greece for 10-15 euros for a 3 course dinner with wine. We will be arranging some group evening meals at our favourite places throughout the week for those that wish to join us. Why not bring a partner? Even if they don't want to paint there are plenty of water activities to indulge in.
