Aspiring artists can discover the natural beauty and vibrant culture of Tahiti through an artist’s palette during creative art tours led by Australian artist Tania Wursig.
The Sydney born and based artist with a penchant for the exotic will host three seven-day tours this year departing July 13, August 10 and September 7, 2015.
Priced from $3740* per person twin share, packages include return economy airfares from Sydney or Melbourne with Air Tahiti Nui, seven nights at Le Meridien Tahiti in a deluxe ocean view room with buffet breakfast daily, transfers, selected sightseeing and some art materials. Travellers will also enjoy daily workshops with Tania in Le Meridien’s unique L’Atelier studio overlooking lush tropical gardens and a luminescent lagoon.
The workshops will include painting and drawing instruction, including demonstration of various techniques, guidance and one-on-one critique.
Tania will also host guided tours to some of her favourite destinations around the island offering the chance to sketch amid the beauty of the caves of Maraa and Vaipahi Gardens or amongst the hustle and bustle of the Papeete market.
Tahiti Tourisme Australia Director Robert Thompson said Tahiti was the ultimate destination for aspiring artists.
“From Paul Gauguin to Matisse and our very own Tania Wursig, Tahiti has been a muse to many a great artist over the years. These tours will no doubt inspire some striking works as holidaymakers immerse themselves in the breathtaking beauty of Tahiti,” Mr Thompson said.
Emma Williams from Tahiti Mana said the tours offered an exciting mix of discovery and learning for artists of all levels whether they liked to paint, draw or sketch.
“It’s impossible not to be inspired by Tahiti’s ancient Polynesian culture and the island’s spectacular vistas and lush tropical gardens. Anyone that attends these workshops is sure to come home with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime and influence countless art works,” Ms Williams said.
