The Artful Adventures include sea kayaking, snorkeling, 'beaching' and relaxing! Non-art companions and those wishing only the Sea Kayaking Trip format are welcome to join these weeks at a discount.
ADVENTURE AND CREATIVE EXPRESSION
A dynamic cycle of recreational activities and artful sessions during the week creates an inspired atmosphere for
fun and imaginative learning. A great vacation becomes even better with this idyllic combination!
We offer a variety of themes in our Artful Adventure series to meet the variety of expressive preferences found
in all of us:
No previous experience necessary! In the same way that kayaking is not 'just for athletes', artful expression is not 'just
for artists'. Creating belongs to all of us; it breathes life into routine and infuses inspiration into every part of our
lives. Whether you are learning from the beginning or continuing your skills from your present level, you'll
return home with not only beautiful mementos of your trip; recipes, art works, perhaps a new dance step, but
also with a new grab bag of tools and techniques to live your Yucatan adventure at home.
AMERICAN ARTISTS TEAM WITH MEXICAN AND MAYAN ARTISTS
One of the best parts of the Artful Adventures is our fabulous resource staff of Mexican, Mayan and North
Americans. Our multicultural approach to learning brings together themes, methods and stories from the two
Americas; adventure and art transcend time and space in the atmosphere of the ancient Maya. Language
translation is an integral part of the week and you will certainly go home with a few new Mayan words.
Our staff members, all accomplished artists in their own right, also share a passion for teaching. They are fun
loving, dedicated professionals who thrive in the open-air 'living classroom' atmosphere of the tropics. They
rock 'n roll with the tides and know how to be spontaneous with learning moments. Their confidence infuses
the workshop sessions and promotes a positive, non-competitive ambiance for all. Deep friendships have been
made over the years between them and trip participants enjoy being a part of this people-to-people diplomacy.
We invite you to explore your interpretive voice and retouch the creative adventurer in yourself this winter.
Surround yourself in the warmth and beauty of the tropics as you paddle, play and create your way through an
unforgettable vacation to Mexico's Caribbean Coast.
