A Travelling Brush tour shows you both the grand attractions and the hidden gems of each location, using unique & beautiful accomodations as a base for artistic exploration.

The Phoenix Art Workshop is a privately-run visual arts centre with art classes for young people and adults, emphasizing visual literacy, design and individual creativity.

A community-based resource for art supplies, custom framing, and education, Phoenix Art Workshop has always encouraged artists to work creatively from life and plein air by hosting our international tours and organizing events like our 24 Hour Life Drawing Marathons, Culture Days, The 100 Day Challenge, Chalk the Boardwalk and our Grand Prix of Art.

In 2005, Phoenix Art Workshop organized and led their first international artists excursion to Cuba under the name The Travelling Brush. They have now hosted trips to Italy, Colombia, Turkey, Bali, Spain, Guatemala, China, Peru and Greece, focused around “slow travel.”

Our International tours have become a huge component of our identity here at Phoenix Art Workshop, both here in Canada and the many international locations we have visited over the last 12 years.

The Travelling Brush trips are perfect for all experience levels, from professional to novice or complete beginner – photographers and non-artist companions also enjoy the pace of our tours, and may discover they have an unexpected artistic talent.

Challenging ourselves to observe, absorb and record these experiences while we take the slow travel road, rather than rushing from location to location to check our bucket list, is without doubt, the most rewarding way to discover the world. Join us on an upcoming trip and be prepared to discover for yourself the art of travel.
