Dear Stay-at-Home Mom, Grandma or Retiree,

Tired of feeling bored, uninspired and stuck looking at the same walls every day? Soon you’ll love having the time to happily sketch and create!

Are you always in awe of those people who have travelled the world and come back with an art journal full of amazing paintings? Can you imagine being one of those people? Yes! It’s possible — I have seen people’s faces light up with joy hundreds of times in my classes and art retreats.

Itching to travel again, but don’t want to deal with all those lines and flight cancellations? Join us to relive those precious memories from Greece — and this time, sketch or paint a beautiful journal full of memories — whether you’re a complete beginner or experienced artist.

Come and travel online and paint with one of Australia’s most successful art teaching programs. Don’t have a lot of painting experience? No problem. Even in just 1 day, you will understand how to use pencil, watercolour and ink to paint anything you see. The incredible paintings you create will amaze you! There are recordings available for VIPs if you miss a session. Switch off and create with joy. Then enjoy the feeling of showing off your artworks to your friends and family!

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity lets you learn from a master teacher at an unbelievably low price — less than one tenth of a normal retreat price. This offer is only open to a limited number of people who book in early. Once the bookings are filled this offer will close. EARLY BIRD OPTION CLOSES SOON!

What you will experience

Traveling with paint from home is easy once you know the tricks! You’ll be immersed in stunning locations of the Greek Islands Mykonos and Rhodes to grow and explore your inner creativity with guidance from a kind zen art master.

You may even discover why creating art is so addictive to so many people. Did you know that making art has been proven to affect brain waves, calm the nervous system, raise serotonin levels and as a result genuinely make you feel happier?

You will discover that sketching and painting what you see while travelling creates treasured memories of those precious moments in time. You’ll find that drawing and painting while travelling will encapsulate those happy feelings far more than just photographs you take.

The best part of all is, you’ll enjoy meeting other like-minded arty travellers without having to worry about masks! We’ll be able to see each other’s smiles without suffocating in a mask. SO join up, throw off that mask, and let’s have some fun together!


Student, Joyce G.

Feel a huge sense of achievement when you (finally!) get painting.

Enjoy the satisfaction of creating wonderful artwork at the end of a creativity session.

Switch off from everyday worries, stresses and boredom to become relaxed, happy and refreshed.


“I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed doing the course. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do… and you’ve given me the opportunity to have a go!”

“I really enjoyed it. A whole new world… realising that you can just keep playing with it!”

 What we’ll be doing together over the retreat

Each day, you can explore incredible sites of Greece with paint, a vibrant community of creatives and a kind art mentor.

We’ll be immersing ourselves in the local culture, going on virtual walking tours around the streets, and popping into local restaurants to taste the local food specialties. We’ll provide simple art material lists and meal ideas for you to be able to prepare at home and taste the amazing gourmet sensations that Greece is famous for.

We’ll even make wine recommendations for each of the local areas that go perfectly with the food. VIPs get to wine and dine together on Zoom in the safety of our own homes, without having to worry about masks hiding our beaming smiles!

Most of all, you will receive personal tuition in art, just like on a real art retreat, from a kind and generous tutor. You will be amazed at what you learn, and what you’ll create in your very own art travel journal over the two days of exploring fun.

Discover how easily you can sketch people, street scenes, architecture and animals (even if you can’t draw a stick figure!) with a ton of artists’ tricks that you’ll learn! Step by step, you’ll understand how to start a new sketch from scratch, and how easy it is to turn it into a delightful watercolour painting in your journal.

Whether you’re a total beginner or even an experienced artist, you will grow your skills and learn how to draw and paint on location. Everyone will find make drawing and painting realistic art so fun and easy.
