Below are just some of the comments we have received from those who have attended our Spring Painting Weeks:

"The Spring Painting Week spent in Paxos is the best painting course I have ever been on, and I have been on many, including California, France, Italy and the UK.  It was very well organised and the tuition was of a very high standard.  The accommodation was good and the food and wine were excellent." - DM, Larnaca, Cyprus

"I would thoroughly recommend this holiday to any aspiring artist at any level. Breathtaking views on an unspoilt island, expert tuition and good food and wine. Plus the new friendships to be made. Same place, same time, next year!" - LPHW, St Austell

"Thank you Margaret and Chris for a wonderful Painting Holiday on the Island of Paxos. We were most impressed with all aspects of our week there, and will return for another adventure as soon as we are back in Europe. Jenny Halstead is an exceptional Art tutor and I left wanting to try all her tips, as soon as I got home." - NM, Melbourne, Australia.

"A delightful holiday in a wonderful setting with excellent company and expert art tuition. As beginners, we were inspired by the more able members of the small group and the stunning scenery surrounding us." - PH & VH, Stockport

"A wonderful way to spend a holiday, in an inspirational location; even for a beginner at art. I just look forward to the next time." - PMH, Whitchurch-on-Thames

"An enjoyable programme, very well organised in a beautiful setting, with a professional and enthusiastic instructor." - JA & DAB, Eversley

"Jenny couldn't have done more to make our holiday enjoyable. Lovely locations, excellent accommodation, we all got on well together and we had a holiday to remember. We also learnt a lot about drawing and painting." - JA, Maidenhead

"The Paxos locations are stunningly beautiful and local people are genuinely kind and good-natured. May is the ideal time to visit the island: the colours of the flowers are amazing and the locations we use are quiet and undisturbed. I found the course really enjoyable." - PG, London E4

"For a week of pleasure, learning and relaxation, the Paxos Life Activities art week is a must!" - ST, Brisbane, Australia


Morning Sketching Session

Our Spring Painting Weeks are equally suitable for those with previous experience and for complete beginners, and aim to provide you with a wonderful painting holiday where you can enjoy sketching and painting alongside other painters in an inspirational setting. They are based in the delightful village of Loggos, the smallest of the three coastal villages on the beautiful Greek island of Paxos, but time is also spent visiting other parts of the island.  

Alternative accommodation and extending your holiday: If you do not wish to stay with the group, we can help you to find alternative accommodation. If you would like to extend your holiday and spend a few additional days on Paxos or a few days on Corfu, we can help you to find suitable accommodation.
