Paint in the most beautiful areas of the world.
Combining travel, art, adventure and huge amounts of inspiration and fun for the past 10 years, Art Safari leads plein air painting holidays to destinations worldwide. We have set departures that you can join in Africa, Asia, Europe as well as Antarctica and the Arctic. Each year we have new tours, often including India, Cambodia, Madagascar, Namibia, Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Kenya, Morocco, Turkey and Italy. In 2014 we will be offering new itineraries in Japan and Bhutan.
Join Art Safari for colour, shape and action in the top wildlife, wilderness and city destinations.
Your travel sketchbooks will become visual diaries, full of the wonders of the world. Art Safari is for all those inspired to paint by travel and wildlife. Whether you are a beginner or you are already an experienced artist, Art Safari’s professional team of tutors and guides will encourage you to sit, look, sketch, observe, soak up the atmosphere and produce many sketches and paintings of your new environment. Our tutors include Mary-Anne Bartlett, James Willis, John Threlfall, and Karen Pearson.
Take in detail, observe, learn and collect memories in sketches and paintings.
Art Safari’s holidays are for creative explorers: artists, writers, photographers and non-painters. Whether travelling on your own or not, you are welcomed into a like-minded group. Be assured of inspiration, good food, comfort and style. Photographers and non-painting partners will experience new ways of seeing as well as enjoying all the benefits of relaxed wildlife viewing and personal safari guiding – brilliant for photography, bird watching and learning more about nature.
Art Safari also operates a separate tour company Close Encounters Africa for private tailor-made holidays: our team of specialists will introduce you to experts in nature worldwide as well as organise dreamy tours, honeymoons and specialist travel.
