Several guided travel days set this artistic experience apart from the rest. You will be shown the must see sights in Tuscany's most majestic cities.  Then on to the Chianti region to create art like you've never done before.

Begin the adventure  

with several days of exploring the treasures of the Renaissance in Florence and Pisa.  You will visit magnificent churches, museums and other historic sights as well as spend many relaxing hours enjoying the fabulous food, wine and shopping that Italy has to offer. 

Every detail is taken care of  including private drivers, authentic Italian accommodations, museum passes, etc. Traveling to a foreign country on your own can be intimidating.  This is a great opportunity to experience the joys of travel without worrying about the details.

Finger Painting

 This experience is not as much about making perfect art as it is about the joyful act of creating. 

Explore several art techniques
on a beautiful estate in the Chianti region of Tuscany rediscovering the freedom to create as you did when you were a child; freely, without inhibition.  These simple techniques are designed to produce impressive results for both beginner and experienced artists!
