Painting on holiday under the Greek sun in Crete

1 week stay including a 4-day painting course for beginners and advanced in Crete, € 585.- p.p.p.w., excluding flight, transfers, meals, and beverages.
Including: 4-day painting course, 7 nights in a studio, incl. breakfast, transportation to/from painting locations, and optional excursions.

Workshops
Four mornings from 09:30 to 13:00, you can draw and paint to your heart's content in the beautiful, varied nature of the Greek island of Crete.
The groups consist of up to 12 participants and the courses are exclusive materials. Experience has shown that most people prefer to work with their own materials. We will make sure that paint and brushes are available, in case you miss something, but please bring your own familiar materials with you. At 09:00 we leave for the location where we will paint. That may be by the sea or inland. We work until around noon, after which we go on excursions or return to our accommodation.

Accommodation
You will stay in Avra Studios – Taverna. The complex is located on the beach and built in typical Greek style in a lush garden with palm trees. The owner and his family are very hospitable and friendly and will make you feel at home. You will stay in a studio, incl. breakfast. In the morning you can enjoy a good quality breakfast buffet, and in the evening, the owner prepares you a meal with fresh local products.

Accompanying partners pay € 365.- p.p.p.w. (7 nights) excluding flight, transfers, meals, and beverages. This includes co-stay in the studio incl. breakfast, and optional excursions.

Extension ad. € 315. - p.p.p.w. (just bed/breakfast) is available on request.

Private package
You can also combine our workshops with a self-booked package. In that case you take care of your own transportation to our meeting point and pay € 250.- p.p. for the 4-day course.

Optional excursions
In the afternoon we offer optional excursions, for example to the beautiful old village Orino. Or you can join us to the village Kalamafka, with above it a small chapel, hidden in a rock. This is accessed via a large number of steps, but well worth it! There is also a hike to a waterfall and a visit to the quaint village Kato Simmi, where all year water flows abundantly from the mountains. The trip to the Sarakina Gorge is also highly recommended! The excursions are included. Would you rather spend your time on the beach? You are free to do so!
