Art Vacations in Lemnos

Art vacations in Lemnos

Explore the island and create your own personal travel journal

The purpose of this 7-day workshop is to explore and discover the island of Lemnos, through a journey of art making. Katerina Veroutsou will be your guide on this creative journey of free expression and experimentation. We will be travelling through the island’s unique landscape and picturesque villages, taking in its sights, colors and textures, creating a travel journal. We will sketch and paint on location, in a small intimate group of no more than 8-9 participants. The fundamentals of art creation - composition, design, value, color- will be discussed in a loose and relaxed manner. We encourage spontaneity and intuition, invite “mistakes”, and learn from them. We will be using folding sketchbooks, allowing the landscape to unfold. There will be daily studio time, where we will make these journals “come alive”, through the use of mixed media, photographs or any other kind of reference material needed. Katerina will be there to guide and offer in depth demonstrations. Each participant will receive his/her own Artmade kit containing the following materials:

The contents of the ArtMade kit are yours to take away with you.

ArtMade will also provide you with several diverse materials and tools to facilitate experimentation and play.

We will have informal and relaxed discussions of our art projects in the shady courtyard of the main house, over dinner and a glass of wine.

Our belief is that art flourishes in a relaxed environment. Creativity can be exhilarating and liberating!

ArtMade was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly one of our best travel experiences. Katerina was perfect while Antonis took very good care of us!

We have visited Greece several times and we thought that ArtMade Vacations was a good idea to experience something different. We are sure glad that we did! Our hosts made sure that the whole day went smoothly, lots of special moments! Highly recommended!
