Painting in Kalymnos, Greece Sept 5 - 12, 2022 

On this beautiful and peaceful island in the Dodecanese. A fun week in the company of like minded people. Time to experiment with techniques and improve both visualisation & translation skills.  Concentrating on sketching and information note taking. Stay for a second week when we will be painting en plein air using Winsor & Newton Artisan water soluble oil paints.  NB: Bookings are already coming in!    

"This will be my 4th visit to the island and I have sourced some really inspiring locations to both sketch and paint - and the list is long."

Podi gained a Certificate of Adult Eduction in 1988 and loves 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 - its what keeps me motivated".

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
