Art Safari’s creative adventures out of Africa to Italy



With James Willis

Venice in the Spring

20th – 27th March 2013


Sketch and paint magical Venice in the gentle warmth and colour of springtime!  

Capture some of the glorious architecture, dancing with the watery reflective light of the canals.  We stay in the heart of this fascinating city so that we can meander the streets and take water taxis to our painting destinations.

Guest tutor James Willis leads this tour with guidance, demonstrations and one-to-one tuition. 

James is well known for his large views of Italian cities and as tutor at the Sir John Soane Museum.  You may recognise him as a frequent contributor to The Artist magazine.

We explore on foot and water taxis but principally with pencil and brush, exploring line, colour and reflection. 

We tackle ornate buildings and churches with confidence, choosing San Giorgio, Salute, Redentore, San Trovaso, or San Raphaelo.  As we venture out we will stop to sketch canals, bridges, squares and bustling market places – such as the fish market at Rialto, where we will arrive early in the morning when the deliveries start!

You will come back with a vibrant sketchbook, superb memories and some wonderful material to work with during the summer.

Tour cost:  from £1543 per person sharing including flights with British Airways.
