Travels in Watercolor: Exploring Southern Greece -- June 29-July 6, 2014


Join Sondra Holtzman, Connie Burke and Barbara Euser in legendary Southern Greece June 29-July 6, 2014 for an incredible journey of exploration and creativity. Working in small format, we'll incorporate sketching and painting in watercolor into personal journals, inspired by writing tips and techniques to fully capture this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Exploring Neapolis, Greece from a vantage point known only by locals, we will immerse ourselves in the culture and cuisine of one of the most spectacular areas of the world.
All levels of painting and journalling experience are welcome.

HOT OFF THE PRESS: Following this summer's workshop, Barbara and Connie will publish a small book showcasing 2013 and 2014 workshop participants' artwork. The text will include quotes from participants' art journals, Greek poetry, and information about Neapolis and the surrounding area. The book will be printed in full-color and will be available from as a soft-cover book or e-book.
