Paxos island Greece



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 our Painting Holidays are for: Our painting holidays are suitable for artists of all levels of experience working in most media, and aim to provide everyone with with a wonderful painting holiday where they can enjoy sketching and painting alongside other painters in an inspirational setting. Non-painting partners are also very welcome.

Painting Holidays in 2016:  Jenny Halstead PS, who currently teaches drawing and painting in France, Greece and the Berkshire area, and is an elected member of the prestigious Pastel Society (UK), will be leading a 'Spring Painting Week' between 2 and 9 May. We also hope to run an 'Autumn Painting Week' but the dates for this have yet to be agreed.

Where you will stay: Accommodation will be in lovely villas with pools set in the olive groves no more than a 15-minute walk from the pretty village of Loggos, the smallest of the three coastal villages on Paxos. You will also spend time visiting other parts of the island.

Alternative accommodation and extended holidays: It is also possible for anyone who has their own accommodation or who wishes to be more independent just to join the group tuition sessions. And if you would like to extend your holiday and spend a few additional days on Paxos or a few days on Corfu, then we can help you to arrange accommodation. Please contact us to discuss the options.
