We will also cook together local products, tasting new flavors, gather under the stars and feel inspired.
An opportunity to share experiences, thoughts, ideas and reconnect to your true self.
10:30: Arrival at VivArte Nature
A rejuvenating walk (guided tour) to encounter sculptures and other artworks exhibited in nature. Alongside this hike we will learn about their creative process, along with the notion of the “museum-gallery without walls”. Meanwhile there will be an open debate on the relationship between “man, art and nature.”
Walk to discover the «MYTHIC FOREST”. An amazing scenery in the forest created by artists and inspired by Greek mythology. A meeting with the primary gods, nymphs, heroes: Demeter and Persephone, Narcissus and Echo, the Hesperides, Pan, Prometheus… a scenographic path where contemporary art and ancient myths meet.
Tasting of local products and relaxing in the shade of olive trees and discussion of the travel experience.
“Discovery of scents through colour” An interactive awareness game on the senses of smell and sight – a unique experiential introduction to the plants and aromas of the area through light and colour focused on observing and expressing our surroundings: the sights, scents and their interpretation. Olfaction plants that are collected from our art garden such as oregano, lavender, thyme, rosemary, sage, basil, lemon verbena etc.
2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.: Rest and free time
The afternoon is the ideal time to have coffee or tea and enjoy some sweet or salty traditional Greek biscuits in the shadow of the centenary olive trees, whilst also enjoying a few moments of contemplation in nature.
6:00 p.m.: Creative workshop on the theme of: Molding with clay (Sculpture). We artistically express our gratitude to the earth and praise it by using the most basic material that it provides us with, the clay. A workshop dedicated to symbolic art with the construction of a simple sculpture (totem) that will express the inner world of each one of us.
9:00 p.m.: Aperitif and participatory dining experience; we will create our dinner together, enjoying moments of tasting and gathering under the stars.
8:00a.m.-10:00 a.m. breakfast
11:30a.m – 2:00p.m.: Creative workshop on the theme of: Painting nature with colours (materials used: acrylic and watercolours) A game with colours, a new way of awareness and communication with the language of the visual arts. We feel and interpret the magic of natural light in the unique atmosphere of a natural landscape. We enjoy a morning outdoors, expressing the emotions and experiences that the landscape offers us and converting our sensations and perceptions into abstract paintings.
2:30 p.m.: Departure from VivArte Nature and arrival at Giannitsi village – introduction to mysticism and the history of the area. Swim in the crystalline water of the Aegean Sea on the unique beach of Giannitsi (if the weather allows us to) and have lunch in one of the local taverns (during the meal we will discuss the experience of the trip).
