During the "BE AN ARTIST IN ATHENS" experience, you will LEARN how to create your own VISUAL DIARY (Travel journal) of your memories and adventures of your trip. I'll pick you up at Metro Station Monastiraki. We’ll walk through the small streets of Plaka up to Anafiotika to discover amazing spots, spectacular views and follow unexpected events. During our walk we gather “memories”. We’ll decide together where you want to stop and paint. I'll demonstrate three different techniques based on watercolor and I'll show you how to use sketches, collage and text providing you with some printed notes. We focus on creativity and expression, so don't worry if you don't have any previous experience in drawing or painting! Anyone can do it and be prepared to have A LOT OF FUN! There is a special GIFT from me to you: Your painting pad, so you can continue creating by your own! We will celebrate our journey with an “ouzo (glass of wine or raki) and a greek meze” You are welcome to join me for a unique experience!

All painting materials + your Travel Sketchbook +Notes about the course
I am Mariela, I’m a painter, art teacher, designer, living and working in Athens, Greece. I lived and studied in Paris, France and speak fluent English as well as French. I’m teaching for more than 25 years now and my aim is to help as many people as I can to express themselves in a creative way. I'm very passionate about sharing knowledge. Painting is "the love of my life", is what I always wanted to do since I was a little child. I like to play with colors, lights and darks. I work with all kind of media and always try to explore new possibilities. Art can brighten your day, can make you smile and feel good. I believe that everybody can draw and paint with the guidance of an expert! Give it a try while visiting Athens. I'm also running another experience: Taste and paint with coffee • Athens PLease take a look!
Plaka is one of the oldest section in Athens. Together with Anafiotika in the shadow of Acropolis are like a picturesque village within the city. They are beautiful, full of surprises, nice spots and life. Unexpected events like music or street theater can happen at anytime. At the end we go to an all day cafe restaurant (with a nice garden) to enjoy our drinks, taste a "geek meze" and discuss about the experience.
