A week of study and discovery in charming beach front accommodations, on a Greek island. Discover the hospitality and kindness of the locals, take a break from your stressful and demanding life style to relax in a place with a slower pace.
Lesvos faces the coast of west Turkey. Olive groves, pine trees and a rich variety of flora cover the terrain year-long, while winding paths connect
between the ancient villages. The island offers endless breathtaking views out to the surrounding blue and turquoise bays where the local fishing boats find shelter.
In 2019 we will hold a landscape painting workshop in Molyvos, with the artist and teacher Moti Shuval.
The water color and pastel painting retreat is held in a small group, thus offering lots of personal coaching and support.
Guests will be hosted in picturesque sea-side accommodations throughout the week, with breakfast included. We will visit local artists, hear lectures and watch movies by watercolor technique masters. We will dine in hidden local taverns, roam the cobblestone alleys and meet Tamar’s fascinating local friends.
