This year, you have the opportunity to join the Society of Bluffton Artists and explore the beauty and splendor of Guatemala. The SOBA Board of Directors is proud to offer this outstanding experience to our members and friends. You will discover some of the world’s most inspiring settings… the many layered textures and colors of Guatemala are an artist’s heaven and a traveler’s dream. The people and the culture will weave their way into your heart as you explore the ruins of the early Maya civilizations and the small villages where the indigenous population live, speak, dress and practice their religion as they did hundreds of years ago. The markets, the feel of Spanish Colonial, and the colorful countryside will all make you want to return again and again.
We stay at the most unique, luxurious hotels and dine on the finest cuisine (including the “typical” indigenous fare); travel the country in first class motor coaches with the best drivers and guides (all connected by cell phone and radios); comfortable seats, lots of room and viewing windows are the order of the day. Visit the “must see” as well as private venues that are not seen or experienced by others.
Under the expert guidance of our two instructors, we will paint in the gardens and ruins of The Santo Domingo monastery and in the ruins of Antigua. When we travel to Lake Atitlan, we will paint in a private open air studio with views of the volcano and Lake Atitlan. There will be plenty for non-artists and spouses to do on this trip!
