A Week of Watercolour Painting in Kalymnos, Greece.

Kalymnos is a stunning and authentic Greek island in the Dodecanese and the week will include daily tuition taking advantage of different and dramatic painting locations, and is aimed at challenging the more experienced painter and inspiring the beginner. Kalymnos also offers the traveller great food, a friendly welcome, and fabulous beaches for a great Greek Island Holiday. Non-painting partners and friends are very welcome and will find plenty to do.

2020 will be the fourth year I have worked with our wonderful hosts Liz and John at Greek Island Painting Trips, who are Kalymnos residents. The temperature in September is perfect for swimming in the sea, basking in the sun, yet not too hot for outdoor painting. Liz and John look after all our needs. Price £999 to include accommodation with en suite and breakfast, 5 days tuition, transport to locations around the islands, 2 evenings out with dinner. Flights not included.
