OVERVIEW

After a long and gray central European winter Prague greets sunny springtime with an explosion of artistic events of all varieties. Join with us for a bloom of nature and creativity in (who can argue?) the worldʼs most beautiful city. From May 28 to June 3, you will feast on the offerings available in music, dance, and visual arts – while developing your own inner artist during our enjoyable and invigorating morning artistsʼ workshops. Our week includes a generous sampling of the offerings of the Prague Fringe Festival – a bonanza for lovers of off-the-beaten-path theater and music.

 

ART WORKSHOPS

Prepare to never be bored! Every one of this session’s five morning workshops introduces a new medium, spanning from sculpting to water color to plein air painting in Letna Park (overlooking the magnificent Prague skyline). A morning at artbreak™ is not a “master class” for professional artists but a chance for ordinary people to relish the catharsis and fun of artistic expression, in the supportive company of gifted art teachers. All artbreak™ morning workshops are designed to accommodate beginners: No prior experience or even prior interest is required – just a willingness to explore something new for a few days. That said, if you do happen to be an accomplished artist, artbreak™ is a no-risk chance to try new media for expressing yourself, and for meeting artists in a different country.

  • In retrospect, I am glad that we had a day before and after the scheduled events, to acclimate to the city before, and after, to pursue things we hadn't had an opportunity to get to.


    Manuel J.
    Financial Analyst, Salamanca, Spain
  • Here is what stands out for me: overcoming insecurity about making art in front of strangers; making art in companionship with people who are now on the same adventure.

    Maryly S.
    Artist and retired Librarian, Berkeley, California, USA
  • The perfect balance of the travelers’ opposites – discovery on your own and a peek into the insiders’ world. I would NEVER have found this on my own.
