artistravel international

Our selection of international art breaks and creative holidays

Within just 8 years artistravel has created the market-leading offer of German speaking creative holiday workshops. Now it's time for artistravel international! Despite growing quickly we’ve always remained a small, passionate family business, treating our tutors as family-members and guests as friends. more

It was passion and curiosity which drove us from offering a few dozen painting, photography and sculpturing courses in 2010 to more than 400 classes all over Europe in 2018. And now again curiosity and passion are driving our interest towards the international market with its English speaking offer of creative holiday courses and tours across Europe.

We were interested to learn from the best for our own business in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and so after months of research came up with what we personally think are the top 100 English speaking tutors and their very best classes, trips and holidays in some of the most beautiful spots in Europe — Enjoy a beautiful range of creative art breaks carefully selected by artistravel international!

If you have further suggestions or recommendations on amazing tutors, wonderful destinations or great workshops that we need to add to our artistravel international shortlist YOU are warmly invited to share YOUR experience with us!

We will be happy about every comment and may add your personal favourites to our shortlist, too!
