Art Holidays

Skyros offers art courses at both centres in Greece - Atsitsa Bay and The Skyros Centre and Skyros HQ, The Grange by the Sea in the UK. 

God may or may not be beauty and creativity, but Skyros island definitely is! You can see in the beautiful Atsitsa Bay where more than three thousand years ago Odysseus landed to take young Achilles to the long Trojan war! 

Inspired by the breathing of the pine trees, the whispers of the nocturnal sea or the memories of rocks blessed with the wisdom of so many generations, people embark on a serene, inspirational journey that takes them beyond the boundaries of their imagination. The beautiful images they create, with help from our facilitators, through their unexplored inner landscapes make them proud of a creativity some never suspected they possess! 

Courses in painting & sketching, watercolours, mosaics, photography and more are open to both beginners and those who would like to develop their skills further. They are facilitated by our highly qualified professional teachers who offer support both within the group and individually. 

And all this within a community of very friendly people, united by the universal language of the heart and ready to share experiences, views and ideas. It is like a dream come true.

At the Skyros Centre, the village offers a visual environment of inspiring beauty and a huge variety of subject matter to explore, from expansive panoramas of sea and sky to intimate winding lanes and courtyards.

Art courses materials are provided, but participants may want to bring with them sketchbooks, pencils and a sharpener, mixing palette, brushes, their preferred paints, canvases or paper and their digital camera. Do not forget an old shirt or apron plus sturdy shoes, hat and plenty of suntan lotion!

‘The best arts and crafts holidays. For creative courses abroad, consider one of the centres offered by Skyros.’ Sophie Butler, The Telegraph
