Art-Afloat Holidays

“Take part in art” with UK drawing and painting holidays plus creative opportuities Worldwide and “Art-Afloat” specials on small select and luxury vessels.

What is Art-Afloat?

Working in partnership with specialist operators, Art-Afloat offers fantastic creative experiences for the keen painter. From luxurious French hotel barges, to  modern tall sailing ships, to small cruise liners and glorious European river boats. Enjoy fine food and wine, comfortable accommodation and service whilst you take in the sights, explore your creativity and capture some of those moments in pencil, ink, pastel or paint.

What could you see?

Art-Afloat has already taken artists to beautiful places such as Venice, Rome, Monaco, Athens, St Tropez and Portofino with other wonderful locations along the French and Italian Rivieras, Corsica, Sardinia, Spain & the Canaries, Madiera and Azores, the Dalmation coast & Greek Islands, Barbados & the atmospheric Caribbean.

However, they are not always abroad! Art-Afloat trips also take place in the UK, mainly in the Eastern Region on smaller craft and yachts. Explore the beautiful rivers Alde, Ore and Deben in Suffolk, or on the Waveney, Norfolk Broads and Essex estuaries.

Details of all Art-Afloat holidays will be posted on the upcoming events page.

What’s included?

The package price given upon enquiry can include your accommodation, art equipment and tuition, both on-board and ashore at wonderful locations – all dovetailed into the vessel’s schedules and excursions.

Please note: Spaces on the Art-Afloat holidays are deliberately limited to enhance the friendly, small group atmosphere and numbers do vary depending on type of trip and the actual vessel, with usually between 6/8 to 10/15 for yachts or barges, 12/15  and 10/20+ for river or ocean going cruise ships.

On most Art Specials the package price will show where travel to and from the vessel is included.
