Art vacation: discover your talent on the Greek islands

Kalymnos ● Kefalonia ● Lefkada ● Lemnos ● Lesvos ● Patmos ● Skopelos ● Skyros ● 28 February 2018
 

Art vacation on the Greek islands can offer you magical moments through the combination of sea, sun and workshops in a captivating scenery that helps you discover your talent. If you want to have alternative vacation and not to sit on an umbrella sunbathing, then you should consider visiting some Greek islands that are renowned for their art and culture. For thousands of years, Greek artists found their inspiration in the beautiful nature of this country than can inspire you too. If you are searching a deeper insight in the Greek art with its rich history, then it is a super idea to actively participate in art seminars and workshops that are being organised in boutique hotels, villas, traditional mansions, residencies and gardens in beautiful locations on the Greek islands that show you another side of Greece.

There are numerous Greek islands that provide art courses, but we gathered here the most representative of all. You can visit more islands, when they are located close to each other, in a cultural island hopping that gives you the opportunity to explore more seaside destinations, get familiar with their art and relax in a wonderful setting.



In the islands of the Aegean Sea, the prominent ancient civilisation has created  a high interest in culture that is reflected everywhere. In Lesvos, you can learn various techniques of pottery and ceramics and create your own clay vessels, plates and cups that are decorated entirely by you. Can you imagine a better souvenir to take back home? Patmos, the island where Saint John wrote the Apocalypse, has a long tradition in icon painting. Through the visit in monasteries and churches as well as iconography workshops, you will be taught how to paint a Byzantine icon with its unique art. Lemnos offers illustration art workshops combined with accommodation, while in Kalymnos are organised qualified painting trips. In Ikaria, you can find Greek language seminars for non-native speakers as well as seminars for painting, watercolour and jewellery.

In Sporades, Skopelos and Skyros are the most artistic islands that can give you moments of true beauty and culture. Skyros offers holistic vacation seminars for painting, sculpture and iconography, while Skopelos promotes cultural exchange with artists from all over the world in arts, such as photography, ceramics, books art and printmaking.

Ionian islands have also rich cultural tradition due to their vicinity with Italy. Lefkada is ideal for painting summer holidays, while in Kefalonia, in the village of Poros, are organised courses for improving your visual memory and painting skills.
