Our local knowledge ensures that you will feel part of the fabric of the location..our research is impeccable so that you come away feeling informed, not a superficial drop in tourist…you will have plenty of time to relax, make your art and enjoy the special itinerary..

Testimonials – Drawn to India, Rajasthan + Shekhawati Artist Study Tour
“I was looking for the perfect art trip to India and I found it in Catherine Parker’s “Drawn to India” tour. It was aunique blend of planned and independent experiences and we were in ideal artist’s locations,beautiful and less touristy. Catherine and her partner Kamlesh saw to every detail so that I was freeto spend all my time creating art and having fun. It was a completely magical time.Susan Estelle KwasMilwaukee, Wisconsin U.S.A.
“The Drawn to India tour with Catherine Parker was an amazing, life changing experience. The itinerary and the accommodation were so special – the average tourist could never stumble upon such places without the combined wealth of experience and research by Catherine and Kamlesh. We left each stop with reluctance, only to be greeted by something more awe inspiring at the next destination. Catherine’s bubbly, caring personality made her a pleasure to be around, and she made sure we felt safe and well looked after throughout the tour. Hands-on art activities and workshops helped us to loosen up and try new styles and it was a pleasure to share such a fun and stimulating adventure with fellow creatives. I can highly recommend this tour to aspiring or established artists.”

The two week tour itself was AMAZING to say the least. It was like being on a magic carpet ride (and we also travelled by bus, train, jeep, camel, elephant, taxi, tuk tuk, motorbike and aeroplane). We stayed in 4 and 5 star Raj Palaces in old cities and no-star rammed earth dwellings in the middle of the desert. We mixed with royalty and gypsies, met tribes people, farmers and talented artisans who shared their craft and their food, and who opened their homes and their hearts to us. All along Catherine and her team paved the way for a smooth and authentic trip of a lifetime. It overflowed with inspiration, contrast, culture and colour … and best of all, we made art along the way. Beth Laurenson, Australia
