What is walkthearts?

Art tours for everyone
call (800) 611.4789

Created in 2001, walkthearts.com promotes experiential learning for high school, college and/or university students, through international art tours and art workshops offered in Europe, Africa, South America and North America. Our art tours and art workshops also welcome any individuals of all ages, lifelong learners, interested to immerse in the culture of the visiting such as Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Cairo, Montréal, New-York, and many more extraordinary ports of call.

We specialize in art history, history, and fine-arts; but also in history of religions, Canadian studies, and French literature as well French, Italian and Spanish language courses. We are well traveled and are very familiar with the United States, Canada, France, Italy and Spain.

We promote active and experiential learning. We lead all from the underground subways and wine cellars to the top of mediaeval towers, via supermarkets. During longer stays, we organize social and physical activities (such as receptions, soccer games, hikes) to foster friendship and understanding between the locals and the young visiting scholars. For fine-arts apprentices we organize exhibitions of their artwork in the host city.

We certainly know that “walking the arts” is an essential aspect of life as it is the only way to understand others, their ways of being and creations. To sum up walkthearts.com offers “live art trips or art tours” or “live holiday art courses” to students, educators, and anyone like you, interested in discovering new cultures via their society, art, history, and religion.

In brief, we takes over the involved task of providing an active learning experience for your students and you in some of the worlds most magical and beautiful locations, may it be for a week-end or a whole school semester.



In attempting to establish certain art as more legitimate and necessary than other art, history writing implicitly privileges some art as more creative and ideologically correct than other art, however much writing history itself may be a creative interpretive and as such artistic act, and also an ideological act. (Donald Kuspit)

Since 1996, icscis walkthearts have been offering quality painting or art workshops and educational tours in France, Italy, Egypt, Spain, United States and Colombia. It is in Tuscany (around Montepulciano, Pienza and Cortona) that we paint in plein-air, learn and discuss, since the landscapes of the Val d'Orcia are just astounding and the quality of life, seducing.  Attended by hundreds of art lovers and artists from all around the world, mostly New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Ottawa and Australia, our painting courses and art history seminars are given to small group by professional artists and art historians. walkthearts.com also provides educational travel for high school, college and/or university students, or on a private basis. Walkthearts offers a living experience through the arts.
