Slow Art Retreat, Andros, Greece, September 9-14, 2019

from 3,300.00

A Slow Art Retreat in Greece!

Join Diva Pyari, Allegra Pomilio, and Rae Dunn for a dreamy slow living creative retreat in Greece! We'll be staying at Mèlisses on the island of Andros, our gorgeous home away from home. Traditional greek architecture with stunning sea views, incredible meals, and just an amazing serenity. I’m thrilled to have our friend and inspiration Rae teaching her magical ways (our 4th retreat teaching together!), and we’re so lucky to have Allegra too— besides hosting and teaching, she’s helped curate such a beautiful itinerary! Lunches and aperitifs in the loveliest towns, and a special day trip where we’ll step back in time for slow living bliss at its best.. And did I mention the views?! We’re just steps to crystal clear waters— you’ll have the choice of the salt water infinity pool or the Mediterranean just below! This will be a quiet week to foster your creativity, while soaking in the light and beauty of this magical part of the world.

Besides relaxing at Mèlisses & exploring the island, we’ll have our Slow Art Workshops: Daily guided meditations and intensive creative classes— from sketching & watercolors, to modern calligraphy or brush lettering, and cooking! These are for absolute beginners (you only draw stick figures? no problem!) and pros alike. When you register there will be a survey on your interests & experience. We’ll offer beginning workshops for the newbies, and new material for those more confident or returning students & participants. Together we'll curate inspired projects based on our lovely surroundings and experiences.

Of course I’m planning the most amazing retreat for you EVER (scroll down for our itinerary), but my deeper goal is to make space for you to connect to yourself and your creativity in a new way, from a new perspective, and to have fun doing it!

7 participants max.  Sorry, no refunds. // If you would prefer to reserve your place with a deposit of $1500, also non-refundable, contact me for link to pay (must be paid in full by May 31, 2019). // Our standard liability contracts to sign and return are also mandatory. Thank you!
