Painting Holiday in Crete with Roger Dellar

Painting by Roger Dellar

This will be our third visit to Chania and it is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy expert tuition in the media of your choice from one of the UK's most popular and experienced art tutors.  With regular guidance from Roger Dellar you will be painting amongst the small squares  and narrow cobbled streets with bougainvillea strewn balconies which abound in Chania old town and the waterfront area of the beautiful old Venetian harbour.
In addition, we have also included a private coach excursion to Polirinia where we will spend the day painting in this beautiful old hilltop village.

Chania enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate and the locals extend a generous and hospitable welcome to match – needless to say, the pace of life here is slow, relaxed and very easy going!  The architecture has a strong Venetian feel to it particularly around the main harbour area with it’s labyrinth of tiny streets leading off into the old town itself.

Our accommodation has been arranged at the refurbished Hotel Porto Veneziano on a Bed and Breakfast basis allowing us to enjoy the hospitality and huge variety of local restaurants each evening. The hotel is situated on arguably the prime waterfront location and is, therefore, ideally situated for us to explore and take advantage of the many wonderful painting opportunities which abound right on our doorstep.

In order to ensure you get the absolute maximum from your week, Roger Dellar will organise a structured daily painting routine with group demonstrations and one to one guidance in your chosen media, as appropriate.  All of our eight day overseas holidays include one half day, from a tuition point of view, for a bit of retail therapy, sightseeing and relaxation. You are, of course, very welcome to opt out of the non-compulsory structure at anytime!    
Group demonstrations will be in Watersoluble Oils.
