Join Patricia Banks on a European River Cruise with Daily Art Instruction

Enjoy a 3-river cruise from Nuremberg to Luxembourg while making art with support by West Coast artist Patricia Banks.

New landscapes offer excellent vistas to add inspiration to your art production or to round out your portfolio. Imagine creating art of river views (the Main, Rhine, and Moselle), castles, medieval pathways, and so much more, all with a uniquely European and historical look not available to us in Canadian landscapes.

Besides seeing wonderful Gothic, Medieval and Baroque architecture, this cruise also includes visits to the world’s largest ceiling fresco in the Würzburg Residence, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and the beautiful Chagall stained-glass windows while in Mainz. Have a look at today’s contemporary art during a tour to Villa Concordia where German and international artists present their works.

Whether painting, drawing, or sketching is your hobby or professional passion, it’s nice to have a professional artist alongside you to bounce ideas off of or to help give you tips to improve your technique.
