Come join us in September on a watercolor sketching cruise of New England and Canada.

*Rates subject to change.

Why sign up now?

Because rates increase as ships fill up, I am highly recommending that you take advantage of this opportunity now. The September 2016 Sketching the Fall Colors cruise was originally only $799 and within a few months, the cost rose to $1149. Then the ship was full within nine months of sailing. There were several students who were interested in the trip but were unable to attend because of what happened.  So for right now, you can secure a cabin for a nominal, non-refundable deposit of $50 per person. Final payment for the cruise line is due later.

Here’s what to expect!

Along with being able to watercolor, sketch and photograph so many neat places, you  only unpack once and get treated like royalty for an entire week on the luxurious Norwegian Dawn--the youngest fleet in North America!

Ports of Call: Boston, Portland, Halifax, Charlottetown/Prince Edward, Gaspesie, La Baie and Quebec City.

  • Week’s instruction of three to four hours each day,

Recommended Travel Agent
Expedia now has a brick and mortar office in Wilsonville. Ed Wong will be coordinating the travel for this workshop. Of course, you can use your own travel agent, but I have found it is easier for all us to have one person coordinating the travel plans. Besides I've been doing work with Expedia for years and they are good. Here is his contact information:
