A 12 day creative artist retreat awaits the emerging or experienced aritst. Guests on tour this year can expect daily art instruction from founder Monika Blichar and co-teacher Irene Eaves. Both women have a combined painting and teaching experience which includes painting, drawing, mixed media and intuitive painting. Guests will receive daily art classes inspired by a joint venture workbook available exclusively to tour participants inspired by Spain’s architecture, landscape and colour. In addition to our art practise, we will be helping guests enjoy museums, art galleries and day activities after classes. Guests can expect a full day of art and culture with evenings to themselves as well as a free day to contemplate their art, explore the surroundings or venture off on a day trip solo or as a group.

Happy New Year to All!

This year has been an incredible one with so many new adventures into the Art World! Thank you all for your wonderful support, enthusiasm and of course, creativity! In 2015, we saw an amazing amount of expansion and growth.

Our first expansion was starting a new event in Toronto this year. It was truly an amazing event especially since we met a tremendous amount of aritsts, sponsors and community players. The calibre of artists in Toronto is wonderful to see and we are grateful for all the artists who participated. We are also looking forward to hosting the 2nd annual Art World Expo in Toronto and are inviting artists, galleries, and organizations to participate! If you are interested, or you know of an artist or group who would be, be sure to share our website!

Our first Painting Dreams International Art Tour to south west France with a group of artists to the Dordogne area. What a wonderful opportunity to work with artists as well as experience French culutre, history and arts. The tour was not only incredible, but a very rewarding experience for Art World Expo as we made some amazing connections that will surely last a life time. Our second tour is scheduled for July-August 2016 and we are travelling to both France and Poland in conjunction with the European Capital of Culture in Wroclaw, Poland. If you are interested in a 12 day tour to either France or Poland, be sure to visit Painting Dreams Art Tours Info. We would love to see you participate in this international trip this year!
