PAINTING HOLIDAYS ON PAXOS
'SPRING PAINTING WEEK': 5 - 12 MAY 2014
'AUTUMN PAINTING WEEK': 29
SEPTEMBER - 6 OCTOBER 2014
Why Paxos: Paxos is a beautiful island and, with its stunning scenery
and wonderfully clear light, it is hard to imagine a
more inspiring location for a painting holiday.
On the West coast there are dramatic cliffs, while on
the East coast there are pretty, unspoilt villages and
scenic bays. Much of the island is covered in olive
groves which are carpeted with wild flowers throughout
the year, from the first daffodils of January to the
cyclamen, crocuses and other wild flowers that reappear
with the first showers of Autumn. The colours are simply amazing.
Who are our painting holidays for:
Our painting holidays are suitable for artists working
in most media, whether they have previous experience or
are complete beginners,
aim to provide everyone with with a wonderful painting
holiday where they can enjoy sketching and painting
alongside other painters in an inspirational setting.
