Our studio is situated in the centre of the village of Poros just few meters away from the coast. Palm and lotus trees surround the garden and the veranda while the scenery is completed by the blue hues of the sky and sea. The vibrant colors of the bugambilias, the foliage of the trees and the colourful views complement the ideal environment that one needs in order to let go and fulfil their creativity.
The workshop is open to all artistic levels. Whether you’re a beginner or an accomplished artist, this inspirational workshop is designed to teach you how to capture the feeling of any scene and transform it in your own unique vision narrative or abstract.
From beginners wanting to learn the basics, to those who have lapsed from their easels over the years; from the seasoned professionals and painting lovers, looking for idyllic settings who want to paint away from their usual surroundings, to those who want to experience the clarity of light and the stretching hues of the famous Greek islands; all are welcome to join the workshop.
Your tutor’s statement
“The creations of an artist are a combination of knowledge and experience, a result of what you feel, what you learn and practise. The clarity of light in Kefalonia has influenced the way I perceive color. It is so wild and strong that stretches all colors to their limits. Even if it is a light that you can’t hide yourself from it, it will never make you suffer as you can always find shelter under a shadow.
There in the coolness of the foliage you discover that blue becomes more intense, green is analyzed from the softest lemon yellow up to the deepest emerald you have ever imagined. Red and orange are very discreetly separated and the difficult yellow offers you its whole range. The Kefalonia landscape guides you in an unlimited range of hues, values and shapes. The light slides provocatively through foliage, holes, shutters and illuminates even the darkest interior revealing everything in its authentic volume. This is an experience that I want to share with people who love to paint.
The workshop will include a structured course on color analysis and elements of composition using the environment as the visual stimulus through which students can develop their awareness and abilities regardless of their level or style of their work. “
