Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Creating Dynamic Beach Art with Susie Self

Sat 13 - Sat 20 Aug 2022

Using found natural materials you will create works with the addition of glue, coloured string, glass beads and acrylic paint.

This playful course is inspired by the practice of the iconic American artist Rauschenberg who lived in Florida. There was a recent retrospective of his work at Tate Modern.

In addition, Susie’s doctoral methodology of creative quilting technique allows for contrasting materials to be put together in unusual, fun and meaningful ways.

The course involves field trips to secret beaches with photo and video documentation.

We will focus on themes such as SEA, ROCK, TREE and SCENT. By the end of the course you will have a dynamic collection of 3-dimensional art to grace your home.

What people say about Susie and her courses:

You were an inspiration in so many ways. I can't quite believe I actually sang (rather than mimed!) Thank you. ‚Äč

I loved the singing, Susie was an excellent tutor.

A maverick, challenging and life altering.

I loved all the courses - especially Susie’s kayaking and swimming early mornings - what a way to start the day.

Kayaking with Susie in the early morning was just magical.

Susie was a very clear and kind facilitator for kayaking.

Susie singing great. And everyone loved kayaking.
