This could be your Art holiday of a lifetime! Join our little band of intrepid artists for 12 days in Spitsbergen at 80o North, only 600 miles from the North Pole.
21st June - 2nd July 2011. Midsummer under the Midnight Sun.
Artists of all backgrounds and experience are welcome - we'll attempt to capture the essence of glaciers, ice bergs, tiny arctic flowers and wonderful arctic wildlife including thousands of sea birds, walrus, reindeer and hopefully polar bears!
Mary-Anne Bartlett of Art Safari (www.artsafari.co.uk) will be on hand to advise and assist in our painting. Our floating studio is a beautiful classic yacht (max 20 passengers) but we'll spend most of our time ashore, sketching, painting, sculpting...
Please see http://thepolarpeople.co.uk/art-in-the-arctic/ for all the details.
At £3685, this holiday certainly isn't cheap but if you've been dreaming of painting or photographing in the Arctic it is exceptionally good value compared with cruise ship voyages with little time to stop and sketch.
