ReCreate Week

Unleash your creative side this summer! Improve and fine tune your painting, photography and creative writing skills during our ReCreate week in Samos

When is ReCreate Week?

11 JUNE 2020

What is ReCreate Week?

We will touch on a range of creative disciplines this week with the help of our guide to ask questions and give structure to the week. This is designed to be a relaxed, easy way to try out a new skill or enjoy an existing hobby in good company and with great subject matter! All our other excursions and trips will also be running and you can take part in as much or little as you’d like!


Whether you own a camera-phone or DSLR, we will teach you the basics of how to create beautiful photos. With plenty of time to play, you will learn to see in a fresh way and develop fundamental skills to take anywhere!

One of the highlights of any holiday is being able to capture moments of fun, friendship, and spectacular scenery on film. Most people don’t think twice about pressing their camera’s shutter button and then look forward to seeing the photos on a big screen when they get home. Yet. sometimes, when you get back home and look through the images, you can be disappointed - blurred or out of focus, too bright, too dark, missing limbs… what went wrong?

Samos island is the perfect place to practise your skills with our guide and bring home photos you are proud of this summer!


The inspirational colour and scenery of Richmond’s Samos resorts provide the perfect setting in which to learn how to paint or to brush up on rusty skills. Seasoned Picassos, too, will enjoy the fun and relaxing atmosphere to paint in.

With such a range of subject matter, you can choose to paint still life, landscapes, architecture – or whatever you’d like! So come and enjoy a peaceful and relaxing break, developing your painting skills while taking in the vibrant colours and stunning landscapes. While the focus will be painting with watercolour, other media (acrylics, oils, pastels, pen and wash) are also welcome.

Creative Writing

Let Samos island inspire you... Steeped in rich culture and history, let your creativity flow as you put pen to paper. Whether sitting on your balcony, notepad in hand, looking out over the wonderful Aegean sea or exploring the secret beaches and mountaintops of this inspiring island, take the time to develop your creative writing skills.
