What you'll do
You can relax while painting and listening to stories from Greek Mythology. Crazy stories about creatures like the Minotaur, half man and half bull, of kings and queens upsetting the gods, with a good dose of lust and strange passion thrown in. About Zeus who swallows a pregnant fly and gives birth to his most beloved daughter Athena. You can be inspired by these tales or just let your imagination fly and enjoy the use of the colors and your creativity. The gods of Olympus had very human characteristics and the Greek mythology has healing powers, because all kind of human issues have been integrated into these stories. Plus they are incredible fun!
Since 2013 I have lived on the beautiful island of Crete. It is a mind blowing experience and it has completely changed my life. My name is Gabriella Damianaki and I am an artist and a Yoga teacher. I was born in East-Berlin, I am half Greek, half German. For many years I lived in Italy and speak four languages (Greek, German, Italian and English). Cretan people have a lot of energy and you will feel that too! With this experience I hope to introduce you to the Greek mythology, perhaps it is more alive than we think! I will tell you stories of gods, heroes and extraordinary creatures. Ever since my childhood I have loved to listen and read of these strange tales and I always incorporate them to my artwork. I love to connect people and stories and to make magic moments happen!
colors, paper, brushes..everything you need for painting!
Where you'll be
We will be at Gabriella's Garden, Palaiokastro. In the beautiful garden of our family guesthouse we will have a nice shady place under the olive trees. The sea is only 100 meters distance, so you can bring your family and friends who like to dive in the sea, or go to one of our lovely Greek Taverns. Everything very easy to reach and at 2 minutes walkway.
