Our 2017 is the third annual international tour opportunity to Europe! We welcome emerging and established artists as well as those with no experience in the arts but who would like to travel with other creatives!
MAB Art Studio is pleased to be organizing the third annual Painting Dreams International Art Tour to experience Barcelona, Spain in Summer 2017. Monika Blichar will be the tour organizer and arts instructor from MAB Art Studio & Boutique Gallery. Irene Eaves for Dancing Brush Studio will be co- teaching art classes this year. This city has a reputation of being the most cosmopolitan, modern and avant-garde city in Spain and has long been a hot spot for world renowned artists and art lovers.
This travel opportunity is focused on emerging and established artists wishing to explore other cultures while participating in daily art classes. The goal is to stimulate and refine artistic skills while working with creatives in another area of the world. This tour will include accommodations, transportation, breakfast and lunch meals during organized activities. Some dinners will be included. Alcohol is not included. All accommodations will have double occupancy, single occupancy rates are available upon request. $4999+tax Canadian, per person, airfare not included.
While the focus will be on artistic development with Monika & Irene, there will also be optional, but included sessions on social media, art marketing, and the business of art. This adventure will include but is not limited to daily art classes, local excursions to museums and galleries, as well as optional local area trips. We will also explore locations such as Europe’s oldest Gothic Quarter, Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Palav de la Musica Orfeo Catalana, Park Guell, Catedral de Barcelona, and the National Museum & of course see the beautiful vistas from Tibidabo! We will also visit local markets & festivals depending on local schedules. After art classes with Monika and Irene, guests will have the option of exploring the city centre, local art galleries & shops, and enjoy the amazing beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. We encourage all guests to participate in all art classes and activities, although we foster a relaxed approach on our international travel tours.
We hope to make this tour a truly unique and inspiring art tour in 2017. Barcelona is the capital city of Spain and is an exceptional place. It is the city that birthed art greats Antoni Gaudi, Salvador Dali, & Joan Miro! Barcelona is an ever evolving city full of rich history and we anticipate a full tour for the 2017 Painting Dreams Art Tour. All participants will be invited to a BC based art show in the fall of 2017.
In addition to offering our Spain Tour, we are also offering a second annual trip to Poland. Monika & her Poland connections are organizing their second annual retreat for a small group (max. 10-14) to experience Wrocław, Poland, commonly referred to as the ‘meeting place’. Wroclaw was selected from 230 cities in the world as “Best City to Live” in 2015. While the focus will be on artistic development with Monika, there will also be optional, but included daily, guided adventures; including but not limited to visiting zoological gardens and a guided optional daytrip to Auschwitz. During the tour we will explore the city, learn about Polish culture, savour the local cuisine and attend events hosted by New Horizon Film Festival, shop at local markets, visit an extensive collection of museums and galleries and maybe even hunt for some local gnomes of which you can find all over the city! We hope to make this tour a truly unique and inspiring vacation for the many women that will come together to experience this incredible location. Wrocław is the capital city of Lower Silesia and is an exceptional place. A meeting place for cultures and people, a city of beautiful monuments and extraordinary experiences. Wrocław is etched with deep history noted as early as 142AD. It has been home to Slavic Tribes, Bohemians, Mongols, Saxons, Austrians, Prussians, Jews, Germans, Gypsy’s and of course Poles! This city has been under the control of the Roman Empire, Napoleon, Prussia, and Germany! The city has been through numerous rebirths and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to explore it with other Canadian Women.
