Workshop on Naxos
October 16 - 23, 2023
Painting, Cooking Classes and Mediterranean Life

Join me on an incredible adventure to the Greek Island of Naxos for a week of artistic expression and exploration under the Mediterranean sun during the most beautiful time of year.


The magical island of Naxos lies between Santorini and Paros in the fabled Cycladic Islands. Our home for the week will be the authentic yet luxurious Naxian Collection Hotel, just a stone’s throw from some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, mountains, ruins and more.


I am so excited to announce our very special guest, my favorite chef in the world, Chef Maria Loi, host of the wildly popular PBS series, The Life of Loi: Mediterranean Secrets, and Executive Chef of the critically acclaimed Loi Estiatorio restaurant in Manhattan, who will teach us iconic Naxian recipes featured on several episodes of The Life of Loi: Mediterranean Secrets!

Painters and travel companions will have the option to take cooking classes from Chef Loi and other cooks from the island as well as other excursions to explore Naxos and neighboring islands.


For all it’s Aegean beauty and charm, Naxos is just a quick flight or ferry ride from Athens, and features modern amenities like wifi and a state-of-the-art hospital.
