With James Willis
Art Safari are looking forward to working once again with artist James Willis and Sir John Soane’s Museum.
We’re happy to offer you this wonderful opportunity to see, paint and experience Sicily through Sir John Soane’s eyes.
Visit the beautiful Island of Sicily with artist tutor James Willis from the Sir John Soane’s Museum.
Sir John Soane (1753-1837) was one of England’s greatest architects – Sicily was his own grand tour and fuelled his love of antiquities.
James will tutor and guide you through the Sicily that Soane travelled to and knew so well, giving a flavour of history and drama as you sketch enchanting towns and far-reaching vistas.Your sketchbooks will fill with buildings and landscapes as you immerse yourself in a week of art, architecture and archaeological sites. With a colourful history of invasions and conquests, Greek, Arab, Roman and Norman influences can be discovered in the architecture and culture of this coveted Island.
Mount Etna presides over this spectacular rugged Mediterranean landscape dotted with oranges and lemons. Cathedrals, churches and palaces await our discovery between Palermo, Agrigento and Syracusa. Opulent interiors glitter with mosaics carried out by Sicilian and Byzantine artists.
After full days of painting these beautiful sites we choose lovely locations for our evenings, relaxing and enjoying wonderful Sicilian cuisine and perhaps a leisurely evening passeggiata.
