Art Course on Crete June 2019


Fancy improving your painting and drawing skills in the glorious Mediterranean sunshine? 


After the enormous success of this art course over the last three years, Helen will be running another week long painting course on the wonderful Greek Island of Crete in October 2019. With another artist family member living and working on Crete for over twenty years, Helen is ideally placed to ensure that participants will have access to some truly excellent outside painting locations and the use of a private school for technique development.


Our base will be Chania, on the north coast of the island. Situated on the Mediterranean Sea, it provides an abundance of suitable painting locations in and around its beautiful Venetian harbour. With a beach within walking distance of the harbour and an abundance of laid back cafes and restaurants on the harbourfront and shady backstreets, there will be no shortage of areas to explore or relax in after your artistic pursuits are over for the day.


With a small group size and a couple of short excursions to get a better feel for the Island of Crete, participants will be able to develop their artistic skills in a relaxing and enjoyable environment.


Helens' next week long 'Art Course on Crete' will start Friday 25th Oct 2019. Those who are interested should contact Helen as soon as possible to register their interest. Details on costs and a full itinerary are available on request by contacting Helen.

Feedback from the course on Crete:

'By far one of the best trips I have ever been on in my lifetime. Such an eclectic mix of people in the group but it just worked so well. You had as much company or individual time as your heart desired during the week. An extensive itinerary of sketching at inspiring sites, painting in the studio, museums & archeology trips, island hopping, some shopping and even some latin dancing. Helen ensured we got to experience the beauty that is Chania to inspire our artful eyes, live it's culture, embrace it's people, savour it's food and drink whilst replenishing every aspect of our bodies & soul. This is so much more than an art trip. Do not miss this chance in a lifetime experience.'
