Art tour Egypt

dates to be determined

Our third Egypt Tour, or Art History Seminar Tour in Egypt(ahst) and painting workshop is intended not only for first time visitors, but also for those who have been once or several times in Egypt. It is nothing compared to what is being offered by travel agencies, since we put all of our energy in art and experiential learning. It is a trip for the adventurous young at heart. For example, at the end of your "ahst", you will know Cairo, have visited the desert, had aperitif on a felucca, etc.

During the 18th and 19th Century, this large country was part of the artistic route commonly called “The Great Tour”, a journey comprising Italy, Greece, the Holy Land, and the Orient usually done by architects, painters, historians, photographers.  It is in this concept of a return to the European sources that icscis offers its second Egypt art tour entitled: Water, Fire, Earth. In this picturesque landscape, you will not only learn on the so many chapters of Egyptian culture, but also have the opportunity to photograph the desert dunes close to the Siwa Oasis belonging to the Libyan desert; the water of the Nile, commonly called the “sea”; the fires of Cairo, the par excellence Arabian city, etc.  The temples of Luxor and Karnak on the shores of the Nile, the valleys of the Queens and the Kings, the pyramids





and its sphinx, Cairo’s mosques and bazaars , the palm trees of the Kattara low lands will be offering for you so you may immortalize them in your memory.
This Egypt Art History Seminar Tour is a magical combination of temples, mosques, museums, art making, sensorial experiences, offers also lot’s of space in order to personalize your Egyptian experience.  In brief, an organized trip which doesn’t feel organized; this is the quality of any icscis art tour Egyptexperiences >see prospectus.
