A float of a lifetime! Treat yourself to a women’s watercolor workshop with acclaimed artist Suze Woolf while you explore the amazing Utah landscape via the beautiful Green River.
Broads has partnered with our friends at Holiday River Expeditions and special guests to create an experience of a lifetime—a float with heart.
Artist Suze Woolf will guide you as you create watercolor memories of this stunning landscape. With informal outdoor sessions, you’ll be introduced to foundational watercolor methods with daily demonstrations and frequent opportunities to practice them. Watercolor is one the most rapid and portable of all painting media, so it’s perfect for a raft trip. Five days on this glorious stretch of river will be filled with art, exploration, and yoga, too! Restore and inspire your spirit on this truly unique trip.
Express your deepened appreciation for this gorgeous canyon through your paintings, learn new watercolor techniques, and practice while workshopping with a professional. You’ll be accompanied by a Broads’ staff member who will share stories of the ongoing efforts to protect this iconic landscape.
All food, life jackets and waterproof river bags are included. You can bring your own sleeping bag and tent or rent a kit from us. You’ll receive a shopping list for your required watercolor supplies and all that’s left to pack is your sense of adventure and love of wild places!
