Travel exposes you to new places, new experiences and sometimes—new hobbies. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to draw, this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.
Renowned portrait and landscape artist Larry Aarons will serve as your very own art instructor and mentor on select sailings. Larry’s workshops are designed for everyone and introduce simple methods he’s developed that make drawing easy and fun. You’ll enjoy:
- A lesson on how to create a charcoal portrait, working with a model.
- A lesson on how to create a watercolor painting, inspired by the destinations you’ll be sailing through.
- Small and personalized class setting.
- Hand-crafted mementos of your trip for you to keep and cherish for years to come.
We’re happy to provide these classes and all art materials at no additional cost—all you have to do is sign up onboard. Class space is limited, so make sure to ask at the front desk when you arrive.
“Hats off to you!! A fabulous class! Learned sooo much. I will now search for more art classes. Thank you for broadening my horizons.”
Thank you for sharing your magic with us.”
