Please note.
This course is suitable for people of any age & ability, single people, couples, small groups and families.

We have been running our courses for 20 years and our holidays in Greece for the past 7 years. We have teamed up with the renowned company, Seafarer who are ABTA and ATOL protected, to provide an art and sailing week at the beautiful paradise-like Nikiana Beach Club. 

Situated on the beach on the island of Lefkas in one of the most naturally beautiful regions in Greece! Situated at a secluded beach, swimming pool, sea views from every corner and the Seafarer water sports centre. This unusual combination works well and gives the opportunity to try other activities (or not), it's all included in the price. 

The hotel is situated directly on the beach and is only a short walk from the quaintly traditional Nikiana village harbour.

Vicki likes to run a very relaxed class to inspire you to find the joy that painting brings and where better to do that than at this beautiful little resort in Lefkas. This is for all abilities from total beginners to experienced artists. 

You will benefit from individual tutoring and group demonstrations and guidance. We will spend most of the time painting outside (in the shade) to gather inspiration from our beautiful surroundings and showing you the necessary techniques to help you on your way and for more advanced artists we will be on hand to guide you at any time.

Classes will run for five of your seven days around 20 hours and you are welcome to either carry on painting later or to use the rest of your day to enjoy the weather, beach and water sports which are included in the price (including all water sports equipment). We will also be experimenting with these in the afternoons, which you are all very welcome to watch for some extra entertainment!

Home cooked traditional Greek food is available at the hotel or there are a few bars and restaurants a short walk from the hotel. We have found some fantastic restaurants with good quality, home cooked food. eating out is very reasonable in Greece for 10-15 euros for a 3 course dinner. We will be arranging some group evening meals at our favourite places throughout the week for those that wish to join us. Why not bring a partner? Even if they don't want to paint there are plenty of water activities and sunshine to indulge in.
