This tour is a feast of glorious architecture, dancing with the watery reflective light of the canals.  Tony will gently guide and mentor us, helping us to capture the essence of grand buildings and ancient streets, the ebb and flow of Venetian life. 

We stay in the historic centre of Venice in a former palace in Dorsoduro, so that we can meander the streets and take water taxis to our painting destinations. 

Our Hotel has its own wharf on the San Vio canal, where there is always something to see, groceries and laundry being delivered and collected by boat as the sun rises, gondolas, water taxis and motorboats carrying Venetians to supper engagements as the sun sets, their voices echoing then fading away.

Tackle the details of ornate buildings and churches with confidence, choosing San Giorgio, Salute, Redentore, San Trovaso, or San Raphaelo.  As we venture out we will 2013 Art Safari 045stop to sketch canals, bridges, squares and bustling market places.

The Academy of Fine Arts and the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation are just a short from our hotel.

A reasonable level of fitness is required as we explore Venice on foot and water taxis/buses but principally with pencil and brush, exploring line, colour and reflection.

You will return with a vibrant sketchbook, superb memories and some wonderful material to work with during the winter months.
