If you are interested in joining me (Podi) in  September 2022, you might like to know what you can expect. 
First the cost: It is £999 (£700 non painting partners)for a week including meet and greet at Pothea port, all transport to venues, hotel accommodation, all breakfasts & two evening meals and 5 days tuition.

There will be no more than 8 students. We stay in family run hotels in Myrties. All rooms are nicely appointed with ensuite and at least fridge, tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel is close to the beach looking over to the island of Telendos (which-weather permitting-we will take the short ferry across). And there are shops/restaurants a short walk away. We go out to different locations to give a variety of subject matter to study.

I have been teaching since 1988 and love to help people on their creative journey whatever their level - I still learn new ways and I’ve been painting professionally for at least 50 years.   Easels & boards are provided for you.  When you book your place I will get in touch with you to advise on what you will need to bring. 

I would be more than happy to chat with you so if you are uncertain, give me a call. And hope to see you there.  I know you will have a wonderful experience.

Some  Comments received....

You find them here, in the cafe, you find them there on the beach, you find artists everywhere!.....Podi

"Thank you very much for all you did to make the holiday such a happy one. My daughter and I feel we learnt a lot.....thank you very much for all you did to make the holiday such a happy one." ......Gerry, Bucks.

Simply Degas, refreshing post-impressionism Podi Lawrence captures the exquisite in lush landscapes, in the story-telling of her portraiture, and in jazz-infused snapshots of life caught on canvas. her versatility in all mediums, a rarity; her spontaneity & passion with paint, a treasure. (Exh judge)

"Our painting holiday in France seems a long time ago, I certainly had a good time and learned quite a bit.....and appreciated the hard work from yourself....." Wendy, Eltham

"I certainly enjoyed France very much indeed, and I gained a lot from your teaching for which I am very grateful...."  Walter, Bromley

Had such a great time with Podi in Kalymnos. The surroundings are so beautiful and inspiring and Podi gives everyone her full atention. Also great food, and company.
I went home intending to do more - and did - so much so I'm going again! - thanks Podi
