Poppy Pagoulatou and Jennie Vlassopoulou from the Mothers Club Council have organized Melbourne artist Jason Roberts to hold art workshops this weekend for the youth of the island with help from the Ithacan Philanthropic Society of Melbourne Australia and with the generous hospitality of Esther and Spyro Paxinos from Lefki, who have welcomed Jason into their home during his stay.
The workshops are being held at the old school in Lefki, with the first day being a free expression of whatever the kids wanted to paint. A lovely sunset setting in the courtyard of the school helped the inspiration. The 2nd day Jason will take them into a more classical setting with a still life. It will be interesting to see how each child interprets what can be a classical painting experience.
