This 12 day painting holiday, on the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes, has something for everyone. The 10 day plan of excursions, to some well known and some lesser known places in Rhodes, offers a variety of landscapes that will encourage your creativity, as well as offer a comprehensive and interesting view of the island. Go to programme for more details regarding the daily schedule.
If you are interested in booking this holiday please contact Linda for more details. All participants will be asked to book their own flights with Easyjet. The earlier the booking the cheaper the price.
On arrival with the Easyjet flight to Rhodes, you will be met at the airport by Linda and accompanied to the accomodation in Pefkos, near Lindos. The journey will take just under an hour.
The varied locations offer different approaches to painting and a general discussion will be held prior to each session. We will address composition, colour and texture, as well as various techniques
according to the medium being employed. Once we start painting, individual tuition will be given. We will also look at photographic composition to help with the Photo Challenge. To start or pause the slide show, hover mouse over lower part of the photo and click on the arrow/pause sign. Click on any image to view it full size.
Accommodation is at the Andreas and Angela Apartments, right by the sea in Pefkos. The location is fabulous and perfect if you want an early morning dip in the sea. Some apartments are on teh ground floor with no steps and some apartments have an extra bedroom upstairs, should you wish to share accommodation. The rooms are typically Greek - fairly basic with tiled floors -
and include small fridge, cooker rings, kitchen sink and cutlery. All rooms have private bathrooms with showers. Bed linen and towels are changed every three days.
AHA will provide a welcome pack in each room, which includes some of the little extras you will need in the apartment. Continental
breakfast is included every morning at the Flyers taverna next door - and you can even pay the lovely Nikos to take you on a flying trip in his little orange plane.
