Minos Beach art hotel, along with the G&A Mamidakis Foundation have teamed up with Travelgems to offer a 3-day free Art Retreat to discuss why Art is healing. Twelve famous experts from Athens, Berlin, NYC and Paris will share their passion, in depth knowledge and personal experience with people who love art. The virtual sessions will take place from May 7th to 9th, 2020 in Minos Beach art hotel’s social media (IGTV and Facebook).
Art is healing because it demands from you to forge a connection between your mind and your body. On a daily basis, we all interact with art in smaller or larger scale. Activities like painting, sculpting, drawing, and photography are relaxing and can lower your stress level. Moreover, observing an art piece can create calmness and harmony, while it can embrace and increase your creativity.
During this 3-day virtual event, awarded artists by the G&A Mamidakis Foundation, whose masterpieces are part of the 53 art collection items of Minos Beach art hotel, Deux Hommes, fashion designers, the owners of Studio 3.8 in Berlin as well as author Filep Motwary will talk about their sources of inspiration, and how art can be healing. Of course, photography could not be missed from this initiative. World-known NYC based photographer, Stephanie Diani, will share all her secrets for creating portraits, advantages of studio vs location work, selecting the right subject to photograph, and many more that constitute the foundations of creating the right photography result.
This virtual art retreat is part of the retreat series of Travelgems launched recently as an antidote to the crisis and they seem to be amazingly impactful to people.
