Artful Journeys* is an annual arts education program, designed to teach new skills, widen horizons, and allow participants to experience art and culture of a region from an artist’s point of view. Our programs have recently expanded to include: art and cooking workshops and music and cultural tours throughout Europe and also workshops on Cape Cod.

Teachers and artists are joined by a common thread: passion for their life and work, whether it

be painting, music, sculpture, cooking, photography or wine. Cultural tour sizes are usually small, as are the workshops, to provide a focused and intimate environment.

*Formally known as “Tuscany: A Journey for the Senses”, our programs were originally based in the Val d’Orcia of southern Tuscany.
