Artists' Vacation Workshop FAQs

Why is there a Ticket Purchase Deadline?

This trip will be greenlighted as soon as the minimum number of tickets have been sold (10).  If we have not sold 10 tickets by the Ticket Purchase Deadline, the trip will be cancelled and your deposit will be refunded to you. This deadline is in place because hotels cannot hold rooms indefinitely. 

Are beginner sketchers welcome?

This workshop is geared toward all skill levels. Some of the participants will be beginners and some advanced but all will learn new skills, tips and tricks and will benefit from the careful attention of our experienced instructor.

What will I do during the workshops if I’m a nonparticipant?

There's a lot to discover in this tourist-friendly city. We will be staying in a centrally located hotel which means there are many sites and attractions within walking distance that you can explore on you own or with other nonsketchers on this tour. And, of course, you will be joining with the sketchers during their non-workshops wanderings.

What supplies should I bring?

Please find a supply list on the particular Vacation Workshop webpage you are interested in.

What if I have to cancel at the last minute?

Please see our Vacation Workshop Refund Policy and check the hotel's refund policy. Last minute cancellations are nonrefundable. We strongly recommend that you purchase travel and medical insurance.

What if the instructor must back out at the last minute?

In the unlikely event of the instructor experiencing a last-minute illness or emergency, the instructor will be replaced with another artist of equal skill and the tour will proceed or the workshop will be postponed to a later date. There will be no reimbursement/compensation made to clients.

What about covid-19?

The tour manager and the instructor are fully vaccinated against covid-19. It may be mandatory to show proof that you are fully vaccinated to gain entry to some foreign countries.
