*****
          Painting tuition will be around 20 hours over 5 days, varied times.
We have found some lovely places to paint, but some happen to be in more remote areas across the island. We have arranged 2 day trips which are included in the price the holiday. This is a great opportunity to visit these beautiful places. 
Non painters are welcome at £25 per trip (subject to space availability). 
Water colour materials are provided for the holiday or you can bring your own.
As we paint in all mediums, we are happy to help you with any medium of your choice, but you will need to bring these yourself.
We like to run a very relaxed class and help inspire you to find the joy and fun that painting brings and where better to do that than this beautiful tranquil little resort in Lefkas.  As there are two of us teaching, so you will benefit from class tutoring and individual tutoring.  We will spend some of the time  showing you the needed techniques to help you on your way. And for more advanced artists we will be on hand to help at any time. We will be painting outside for much of the time, as the scenery is so beautiful and there are many subjects to paint. 
You are welcome to carry on painting into the afternoon, on the site or the town
after the classes and use the art materials.
The accommodation has beautiful views of the sea and a pool to relax by. The water sports are optional for everyone and from personal experience are great fun. Beth and Vicki will be experimenting, so everyone is welcome to watch us fall off the windsurfers.
Meals are available at the hotel and there are bars and restaurants a short walk from the hotel. We will be arranging meals at different places throughout the week in the village in the evenings for those that wish to join us. There are also two larger towns a short taxi ride away.
Entertainment will be on most evenings with a quiz, a greek night  with dancing and traditional food
and a BBQ award night with charity auction for a couple of Vicki's paintings.
