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 beautiful beaches, take photos, draw & collect objects to inform the work back in our studio on our inspirational journeys around this amazing island. There will be practical demonstrations of all processes & individual tuition.
