JANUARY 22 – 30, 2025

We’re excited to return to the charming island of Caye Caulker, Belize for our next Plein Air Watercolor Workshop from January 22nd to January 30th, 2025.
This small Caribbean Island, just a short boat ride from the Belizean mainland, captivates with its pristine white beaches, relaxed “Go Slow” vibe, and spectacular natural scenery.

Caye Caulker is part of the Belize Barrier Reef system, the second-largest barrier reef in the world, offering stunning coastal landscapes perfect for painting “en plein air”.
Having visited before, we know all the ideal spots to set up our easels and capture the gentle breezes, vivid colors, and ever-changing light of this tropical paradise.

What’s included?
* 8 Nights of lodging, including breakfast
* Welcome Reception
* Three Group Dinners
* Painting Field Trips
* Staff Assistance throughout workshop
* 5 days of Plein Air Workshop instruction by Eric Wiegardt
