Painting Holidays in Ithaca - New for 2021

What better way to come out of lockdown than with a Greek painting holiday on beautiful, safe and inspiring Ithaca!

Whether as an experienced painter or someone nearer the beginning of their artistic journey, our new painting holidays have something for everyone. The amazing painting locations, experienced tutors and a friendly, relaxed environment will help you and your art thrive.

We understand that conditions are challenging at the moment. We are very flexible in our approach and dates, so you can provisionally book with confidence. Greece, and Ithaca in particular, has the lowest Covid rates in Europe and are taking exceptional care to keep it that way.

One thing is for sure, whether you can join us in 2021 or not, we will still be painting on Ithaca. So, if you can’t make it this year, talk to us about booking for 2022!

Painting in beautiful Vathi harbour.

Our painting holidays are for seven days, including five full painting days.

Depending on availability painters will stay in either our lovingly restored, 8 person villa, bedecked with art and interesting objects to get you inspired, or other, equally high standard accommodation nearby in Vathy.

Ithaca is a 30 minute ferry from Kefalonia, but a world away from the busy, touristy parts of Greece. We'll meet you at Kefalonia Airport and will make sure you have a safe, supported, comfortable and inspiring trip. Whether it is motivating you as an artist, no matter what your experience, or helping you explore Ithaca and to learn and be inspired by the the Ancient myths - and there is no myth as epic as Homer's Odyssey.

Ithaca is famous as the home of Homer’s Odyssey, the most epic of all the Ancient Greek myths and one that is known the world over. It is a unique and very cultural island. Inspired by Homer's great work, Ithaca has an internationally acclaimed arts festival, 'Paint the Lyric' with painters from all over the world represented every September.
