Art holidays to North Cyprus

Have you ever wished you could paint? Or are you an experienced artist who looks around for new places to be inspired by? Then maybe Malferien with Gerhard Ruhland may be something for you. During spring, summer and autumn Gerhard, along with arts groups, head out to some of the most picturesque places for a few days of painting, discovering and enjoying.

We meet on a sunny October day down at the pool area of the hotel Bellapais Gardens when Gerhard and the visiting group are in the process of completing painting canvases with soft watercolours. Among the motifs are Bellapais Abbey, beaches and other places one has visited over the week.

Artistic holidays to North Cyprus

Gerhard says that North Cyprus is one of his favourite destinations for art holidays. He returns every October with new groups. They always stay at Bellapais Gardens where he has become very good friends with the owners. During the day the group does excursions and paints, and in the evenings eats well and enjoys the hotel’s own wines.

Participants learn different painting techniques and use both watercolour, oil and acrylic. Some are beginners while others are more experienced, some have been on Malferiens art travels in the past while others are new. Here there is no competition, instead everybody focuses on the joy of painting, while making friends for life!

The site is only in German, but you can find contact details to Gerhard who speaks perfect English and can send out information about the trips in English.
