Let the island with all its shades and textures feed into your art.
Located on the Aegean island of Nisyros in the Dodecanese, Gaia Art Workshops brings together a unique artistic experience inspired by nature and stimulated by the active volcano and mystical atmosphere that surrounds the island. Fire, Water, Earth and Air are strong elements in this historical place that draws creatives from around the world to charge their artistic drive with powerful energy in a truly authentic place.
The workshop has been set up for beginners or creative professionals to inspire, invigorate and reconnect with nature. During the week we will be introduced to various art techniques which harness the natural elements of the island. We will explore beaches; forage plants and gather materials wherever we can find them to assemble for use during the workshops or take back home to inspire us further. We will visit the crater of the volcano and half-abandoned villages. Local artists, architects and artisans will guide and advise us. We will taste local foods in selected restaurants. In your spare time you can choose to visit museums and churches, go to the beach, walk and explore, relax in a marble tub of thermal water or plunge into the fresh water swimming pool at your hotel.
