Carolyn Sheather Art Tours

To travel through Italy is already an amazing experience on its own, but to paint it with Carolyn, absorbing the sounds, the history, the architecture, the stories and culture, the colours, the people and flavours through art, well that my friend is something that dreams are made of!

Her art tours are carefully planned and designed with the creative in mind, she engages fabulous local guides that have loads of knowledge about the culture and the area. “We get to go to places that most people never see, we met local artists, chefs, wine makers and pizza lovers.

For me the real gift of being part of these tours is the tuition with Carolyn. Not only is she a gifted artist, she is a superb teacher and tutor. She has a way of communicating a scene or object so that you never quite look at a simple object or complex scene the same way again, and I will be forever grateful for her tuition, her insight and her deep knowledge and comprehensive understanding of art.

Carolyn’s art tours are by far the most amazing travel experiences I’ve ever had.


Art Tours with Carolyn 

I have experienced three trips to both Greece and Italy to paint with Carolyn, and I am lining up for another!

What is it that has me coming back for more?There are several boxes that all get ticks!

The painting is a blissful experience. To have morning after morning just to indulge in the serenity, the company of like minded creative individuals and with the encouragement and support of Carolyn, we attempt to put down the various impressions of a stimulating environment.

Mixing with local people in small villages that are off the normal tourist routes.

Consequently we often find ourselves in interesting coffee shops eating wonderful foods. Then wandering the villages and castle ruins, or exploring amazing gardens, a renowned painters studio, or the pleasure of a workshop with a local artisan trying a new medium. We learn so much about local customs, stories and history.

So I will be back for another total immersion in a new location, experiencing, learning and growing...Thanks Carolyn.

Love and cheers—- Lyndall
