Artful Jaunts blend unique art destinations, education, and behind-the-scenes experiences with luxury accommodations and fine dining to create extraordinary getaways that enrich, educate, and entertain.
Artful Jaunts are typically 3 or 4 days long, for small groups of 10-14 people, and are offered at three levels: Discover (for the emerging collector), Signature (featuring opportunities to meet more established artists), and Connoisseur (presenting the very finest the art world has to offer).
Part of the reason that I love to travel is because I love to be exposed to new cultures and concepts. On this trip, I derived a better understanding of how art, museums, curators, philanthropists, art foundations, and art educational institutions can enrich the fabric of one's environment and help to build a collaborative community.
I like art but am not an expert. Will this trip be right for me?
Absolutely. Artful Jaunts are tailored to every level of aficionado—from expert collectors to those just starting out, there's something for everyone.
Where do your guides come from?
Our guides are carefully sourced from the art world. In addition to impressive resumes, they bring engaging personalities and knowledge that help make every trip unforgettable. After our thorough interview process, we invest heavily in training the guides from public speaking to test trips.
Do your guides undergo background checks?
All Artful employees, including our art educators, have passed a third-party background check.
Do I need to purchase art if I go on a trip?
No, no purchase is required. However, with our access to artists' studios and important galleries, you may find yourself tempted.
What additional costs are not included?
Nothing, other than your own incidentals and your airfare. Our founder likes to say you never have to take out your wallet; just enjoy your Jaunt.
I have been involved in art all my life. Will this trip be too basic for me?
Not at all. With experts and curators to guide you, our trips are designed to be educational, engaging, and entertaining, regardless of your level of involvement in the art world.
Are bespoke trip options on offer?
Yes. A great way to explore art is with your extended family or a set of close friends. Choose your group and your date and we'll create your dream trip for you.
Are corporate Jaunts available?
Of course; if so desired, we can arrange custom Jaunts for your firm. Please contact us directly.
What do I need to bring on a Jaunt?
Enthusiasm and a desire to learn and meet new people with similar interests, and have fun. Packing suggestions will be offered based upon the destination.
What if I want to stay longer to do some personal travel?
By all means. Pre- and post-Jaunt travel could be a great way to enhance your trip. We are more than happy to help you extend your hotel with our preferred rate.
Is a Jaunt appropriate for children?
We do not recommend Jaunts for children who are under 21 years old given the social focus on the evening programming. However, a bespoke Jaunt would be a perfect way to create your own experience for family and friends, including children of all ages.
