Jeannette and Suzy set a new high standard of travel. I joined an ArtWalk Greece with 3 girlfriends. We left Greece with a whole new appreciation of seeing the world by traveling “at the speed of you.” They are fabulous tour leaders. They have a depth of knowledge of the local towns and sites that I have never before experienced. We always felt so well taken care of. We did a lot of walking and art-making. I am looking forward to another Blue Walk in the future!
Travel Journal Art Vacations
Create an Experience to Remember
You’ve daydreamed of this: a vacation with time each day to simply create. The destinations are beautiful. The accommodations are welcoming. All the details are taken care of. In the company of like-minded travelers you savor the wonder of the present moment. And you capture it all through your art.
Our Art Walk art vacations are the perfect tours for artists of all levels. Talented and engaging teachers offer daily classes inspired by stunning locations. Equal parts journey and learning, our art vacations are based on a travel journal format. We mostly working on site. Some programs have studio time at our hotels. Sketchbook, watercolor, collage, multimedia, and photography workshops are all represented in our schedule.
Solo travelers love the easy camaraderie our tours provide. First time European travelers and budding artists love the safe, supportive, and welcoming atmosphere.
Travel at the speed of you.
Come walk with us.
Stretch your legs and expand your experience.
Return home inspired, renewed, and feeling better than ever.
Keeping an illustrated travel journal enhances your trip and opens your mind. Everything around me is fresh and beautiful because I’m drawing it, seeing it truly for the first time.
Once you return from your trip, your mind remains full of wonder. A quick flip through your journal’s pages keeps those memories alive.
