art practice in paradise
art + culture on a
beautiful island in Greece
Australian artist STEPH BOLT works in conjunction with different artists / teachers each year
to explore various mediums on paper, focusing on
their specific area of technical expertise.
The studio we hire on the island of SKOPELOS is located in an old taverna with stunning views.
Accommodation is also available on site.
This is your chance to immerse yourself in another culture, make art, relax & have fun.
These workshops aren't just about working with paper.
We will be stopping to eat & drink at local tavernas & swim at stunning beaches on our inspirational journeys around this amazing island. You will be given a booklet of technical notes, there will be practical demonstrations of all processes & individual tuition.
