- An experience of a lifetime12/02/12
There are rare times when you can say that an experience was "life changing". For me, that description applies unequivocally to my session with Artists on the Move. It was a memorable week of friendship, painting, learning, and artistic growth. One unique
aspect of AOTM is the care the advisor takes in order to individually lead each student to exceed their potential. The island of Paros is an inspirational backdrop and the instructor provides the knowledge, critique, and guidance that develop into a life-changing experience. For that, I am thankful for the opportunity to spend a week in paradise. The town of Paroikia, Paros, with its plaka-stone streets and white buildings, provide the most gorgeous of settings. Getting to paint in a beautiful place like this was incredible. I was able to experience Greece feeling like a local rather than as a tourist. I felt immediately at home and I will in no doubt travel back to the island as soon as I get another chance. Artists on the Move is the perfect program for anyone looking to get the inside view of an amazing island and enrich their passion for artread moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
