Enjoy painting and drawing classes with Artists on the Move on the beautiful island of Paros, Greece. Art classes are designed to study practical elements of painting and drawing such as color theory and composition while helping students to develop a personal approach and expression. The art workshops are open to all levels of experience from the complete beginner wanting to learn the basics, to the seasoned professional looking for an idyllic setting. Students may choose to paint in oil, acrylic or watercolor. Printmaking is also taught and employed as an expansion on the painting and drawing process. The workshops with Artists on the Move are held for seven days with students working mostly in the morning hours, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. daily.
Students paint and draw in open settings, surrounded by stunning views of the Aegean Sea or nestled in the little streets of the island’s traditional villages. During printmaking and other work sessions, students spend time in and around the studio that is located in a peaceful and private setting.
In order to enhance the artistic journey for participants of Artists on the Move, visits are scheduled to museums, archaic sites, cultural and artistic events throughout the week. Paros is an artist’s island boasting wonderful museums, sites and galleries that feature both archaic treasures and contemporary local artists. Artists on the Move offers a unique experience where physical relaxation and enjoyment of the senses work side by side with artistic expression and learning.
The workshops are conducted by Neva Bergemann, an accomplished artist and teacher who has been instructing both students and professionals for 20 years. She has exhibited her work internationally and continues to work in various media including printmaking and painting.
Visits are scheduled to museums, cultural and artistic events throughout the week. As a group we visit the Church of 100 Doors, the earliest remaining Byzantine church in Greece, and its adjacent Baptistery built from the 4th to the 6th centuries. We also visit the ancient marble mines,(the mines from which the white marble for the Venus de Milo was taken) and the Archaeological museum which features objects found on Paros dating as far back as the 3rd Millenium BC.
Students paint and draw mostly outdoors surrounded by stunning views of the Aegean Sea or nestled in the little streets of the old towns of the island such as Paroikia, Naoussa and Lefkes. During printmaking and other work sessions, students spend time in and around the studio that is located in a peaceful and private setting.
