August 21 - August 28 2017
Join George Politis in Pelion, Greece for a journey of exploration and creativity.
Discover the many picturesque and traditional villages and settlements which are the heart and soul of this famous mountain! Discover heavenly seascapes and fantastic beaches, crystal clear water and surrounded by breathtaking mountainsides!
Working in small and large format, we'll be painting in watercolour and other watermedia like watercolour pencils, acrylic inks and collage, learning techniques and most important... learning to see and find a subject (often far from the obvious). This workshop aims to boost the creativity by new inspirational ideas and techniques for an once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We will paint
in several areas in Pelion
like Makrinitsa, Portaria, Tsagarada, Vizitsa, Milies ...
The view over the city of Volos is unique...
Also... great food (local gastronomy) and wine to make this artistic journey even more enjoyable...
As stated, Pelion has majestic beaches AND our hotel has a beautiful waterpool! So... bring your swimming suits, we'll have several chances to go swimming.
All levels of painting and journaling experience are welcome.
Both beginners and advanced participants are welcome since individual attention will be adapted to the needs and personality of each student.
English, French and/or Greek speaking participants are welcome, but painting will be our common language.
