Sketching Retreat in Kea

11-15 May 2022

Explore the beauties of Kea island while LIVING WITH ARTISTS

Painting sessions take place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and beautiful outdoor locations around the island. This workshop in Kea is designed to give you confidence and enjoy sketching and painting wherever you are, gazing at a white Greek village, natural landscapes, or the way light is cast in an ancient ruin. Throughout the course, we’ll work spontaneously on a variety of themes, where I’ll show you to learn to see the world by drawing, how to compose and structure your drawings, and to keep your watercolors fresh and alive.

Each day will start with a short demo and end with a critique, while sitting in a beautiful location, such as an ancient theatre or a Mediterranean beach. We will work progressively, from simple to complex scenes, from line to values, from one color to richer color schemes. As part of a small group, you’ll have plenty of individual attention as we work, allowing you to develop at your own pace concepts like composition, perspective, simplifying a scene, or capturing the essence of a place. There will be different approaches in each location adapted for beginners or advanced sketchers. We’ll focus on having fun while we sketch, recording as much as we can as we move around town.

The aim is to have you return home with great memories of a fat book filled with personal sketches. After this workshop, as you will learn to see Kea through your drawings, I am sure this island will become even more beautiful.


Tetrapolis Keos

The complex includes five self-catering houses, completely independent of each other. In front of the houses is a large 25 meters long swimming pool, with large pergolas, a large deck area for sunbathing, offering a fantastic sea and sunset view. Tetrapolis Keos is the ideal place for holiday and relaxation.

Skill expected from us before attending the workshop:
Just a lot of will to learn, sketch and have fun!

What is the level that we should ideally acquire during the workshop?
Hard question, depends on how hard you work, ideally learn “basic concepts such as composition, perspective ( 1VP, 2 VP, 3VP, fisheye, ….), line concepts, and techniques.
Then, tonal values and colour concepts. Finally, techniques to apply those values and colours like cross-hatching and mainly watercolour” is the goal.
