One Day Art Appreciation Tours

CLICK for more paintingsYes, Costa Rica has it's volcanoes, botanical gardens, butterfly farms and various city tours, but now, Ms. Keeler has created "Costa Rica Art Tour" - a delightful and stimulating way to see the local artisans up close, in their own home / studio. What a wonderful way to enjoy the day and learn about the quiet and unassuming, but very talented, local artists who prefer to stay in their native country and hone their skills and evolve their work, instead of going abroad to promote themselves. And, why not? The Central Valley around San Jose has some of the best climate in the world, is peaceful and tranquil, and the art tour is always available and enjoyable, the experience never marred or affected by the occasional rainy day.

Sculptor Miguel Angel Brenes stands beside a large wood sculpture at his home  / studio. CLICK for more sculpturesBefore starting Costa Rica Art Tour, Ms. Keeler, a student of art and aficionado of galleries in New York, spent over a year getting to personally know local artists and develop the concept of a personal art adventure tour. Now you can visit the artists themselves as they personally present their pieces in the atmosphere in which they are being created - their own studios! Since Ms. Keeler has developed numerous relationships over time with many talented artists, there are now three separate tour days, each day featuring a different agenda of local craftsman. Take one art adventure, or take them all - on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. Tours on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday can also be arranged. Personal art adventure tours are limited to between four to nine art lovers per day, and private transportation is provided. A delicious lunch is served at a local restaurant. For smaller groups, or those who prefer a private tour in extra comfort, a chauffeured Lincoln Town Car or stretch limousine is available upon request at additional cost.
