WATERCOLOUR COURSE IN ICELAND
SEPTEMBER 2017

WITH KEITH HORNBLOWER

The Icelandic Travel Company Art Travel is setting up courses for groups having different interests but all sharing the desire to visit Iceland and to enjoy at the same time associating and learning with others sharing their interests. All our courses feature a special understanding of nature and culture presented to course participants in a personalized, enjoyable, and different manner.
This trip is primarily intended for water colour artists and for people who are interested in learning to paint with water colours. The tour is for people who share interest in art and want to experience the unique nature of Iceland and learn about Icelandic art and culture. The trip will also give the course participants chances to meet and talk with Icelandic artists.

We offer an 8 day trip to Iceland’s northenmost town, Siglufjörður, is a historic fishing town who’s fame and fortune has always been linked to the ebb and flow of the fishing industry. We will stay at Siglunes Guesthouse in the village by the fjord. In addition to the Water Colour Course the group will be provided by a full-day excursion to Akureyri and Mývatn and it will also be possible to take shorter trips from Siglufjörður in the afternoon/nights during our stay in the north.
In the end of the week the group will get 2 nights in Reykjavík. Sunday, we will use to explore the city, it‘s culture and meet Icelandic artists at their studios followed by a Farewell dinner/party in the evening.
Keith Hornblower a great painter from England will be teaching on the Water Colour course and Vallý Pálsdóttir will be the Driver Guide and Administrator .
