Board your motor coach for a short transfer to the magnificent Van Gogh Museum, a dramatic architectural marvel. The Museum consists of two buildings: the main structure designed by Gerrit Rietveld which opened in 1973, and the Exhibition Wing by Kisho Kurokawa, which was completed in 1999. The architecture of the museum is complex and stunning, a visual feast just from the outside. Step inside for a truly unique experience. You will be welcomed into the museum's studio and enjoy a short introduction to Van Gogh. Next, your workshop tutor will take you on a tour to get acquainted with Van Gogh's unique style and to inspire your own “oeuvre.” Then back at the museum studio, try your hand at painting with acrylic paint and a brush, and create your own work of art on canvas. Your tutor will offer advice and assistance. At the completion of your workshop, re-board your motor coach for a scenic drive back to the ship, and be sure to take your finished canvas with you.

Important Notes:
