Your home for this week in Victoria will be the Magnolia Hotel and Spa. which was voted one of the top reader's choice hotels by Conde Naste Traveler magazine.

 

 

In Victoria, BC , you will discover all the charm and culture of our neighboring country to the North that s only a short and reasonably priced  airplane flight away from home.

During your week in Victoria you'll learn or improve your watercolor and anywhere art sketching skills with daily no stress morning lessons.

 There are so many sites tp visit and explore in Victoria.  We will visit  the Empress Hotel (of course, you'll have tea there) and visit the amazingly beautiful Buchart Gardens.  Some of the other sites we can visit are:  the home of Canadian artist, Emily Carr, the Royal BC Museum (which has a collection of Emily Carr paintings), Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria's colorful Chinatown, local artist's galleries,  and a ferry trip to a nearby island.  We'll also learn about the native art and see some of their colorful hand carves totems and more.

You might also want to relax and schedule yourself some treatments in the Hotel Magnolia Spa. They offer a lot of beautifying and relaxing treatments which could add a special treat to your Watercolor Touring Week.  Hint! You'll need to study the spa's menu and book early as I am told they are very popular.
