    lifetime.  Karlyn Holman and Art in

    on this 20-day art adventure from
    Santiago, Chile to San Francisco,
    California.  Karlyn will provide

    companion(s).  No on location
    painting experience is necessary.
    Karlyn will teach En Plein Air
    techniques, as well as fun and free
    approaches to watercolor.  Enjoy
    travel adventures with other artists
    without hauling all kinds of
    equipment. We will paint in the
    comfort of the ship's dining room
    and use our "off of the ship time" to
    gather photos and just have fun.
    Karlyn has taught more than seventy-
    five International workshops and
    feels that painting and travel are
    valuable learning experiences.  With
    the aid of digital cameras, iPads and
    printers, we can return to our studio
    on the ship and create our paintings.
