Walking and sketching traditional village charm

Life inspires art and art inspires life. Several writers, artists and philosophers have posed enigmatic questions about the powerful relationship the two have, such as Oscar Wilde’s notable statement: Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.

In reality, inspiration can be found anywhere if you are open to it, even in life’s most ordinary scenes and objects. Hoping to spark inspiration and encourage art enthusiasts to pay attention to the details, Troodos Art Club is hosting an exciting walking and sketching morning at a local village and only a few spots are left!

A two-hour sketching get-together will take place on November 20 starting at 11am with artists and amateurs exploring Phini village and sketching its life. “What better way to immerse yourself in the charm of a traditional Cypriot village, than a creative walking tour of Phini village?” asks Troodos Art Club. “We will walk through the winding picturesque streets and make a few stops throughout our walk to discover and draw the hidden beauty of our surroundings. By the end of our walk, you will have created a small collection of sketches and observed the village from a different point of view, noticing details that may have otherwise gone unnoticed!”

The fun, laid-back workshop is suitable for all levels, beginners and advanced alike. Even those who have never drawn a single line in their life but would like to give it a go are welcome to join, say the organisers. The workshop is free and run by two qualified artists who will offer guidance and provide all art materials. At the end of the walk, and hopefully, with a sketchbook full of drawings, the participants will rest at a characteristic place for all traditional villages – the coffee shop.
