New `learn to' art-themed tall ship cruises
New `learn to' cruises from tall ship specialist Star Clippers provide guests with the opportunity to unleash their inner artist on three art-themed fully-crewed sailing voyages in 2012, with the first departure on 5th May 2012.
Guests can learn to sketch and paint in the company of successful British artist Richard Nichols, against a backdrop of a beautiful tall ship under full sail, in some of the world’s most stunning locations, including the Greek Islands, Spain & Morocco and the Caribbean. The week long, fully-crewed sailings cost from £1499pp, including art tuition and equipment, all meals on board, return UK flights and transfers.
Suffolk-born Richard Nichols specialises in seascapes and coastal scenes and will run workshops on board each cruise encompassing a variety of media, from sketching to watercolours, aimed at all levels of experience.
Included in the price of the cruise is a special artist’s backpack that converts into a seat for sitting and sketching on location. The backpack contains sketchbooks, paper, watercolours, brushes and pencils, so guests do not need to supply any equipment.
The three `learn to’ art cruises are:
A seven night Greek Islands round-trip cruise from Athens, departing May 5, 2012 on the 170-guest `Star Clipper’, calling at Kusadasi in Turkey, as well as several unspoilt Greek islands, perfect for sketching the famous Cyclades architecture.
