PAINT OUT 2016 in Beautiful Greece!

You are invited to join International Plein Air Painters (IPAP), 
to celebrate the organization’s 15 year Anniversary!

Each year IPAP does an annual international PAINT OUT, in 2016 the anniversary the PAINT OUT will take place on the Greek island of Hydra.  

This Celebration PAINT OUT will give you the opportunity to meet IPAP members, discuss your art, and hear from others.  
Enjoy working independently among a group of creative people on the "Artists’ Island" as Hydra is known. 

The tour is open to IPAP members as well as non-members. SPOUSES, PARTNERS, FRIENDS, WANT-TO-BE-PAINTERS & NON-PAINTERS are welcome!

Optional activities for non-painters and painters include hikes, museum visits, day trips to neighboring islands, 
and a tour of the fascinating archaeological sites of the Peloponnesus…or just relaxing and soaking up the island’s sublime beauty.

“Haven't you been wanting to take time for you, travel to a breathtaking location and feel the lightness of soul, the joy of expression and get inspired?

Make your decision to say 'yes' to you.

Come paint with us...

Come dine with us ...

Come dance with us...

Come celebrate with us!

…The food, the culture, the myths, the music & dances! “

~J. R.  Baldini
