People can travel to places across the globe just by looking at a piece of art. Now, art enthusiasts can literally explore the world and its art through a new business, ArtXcapes.
The business, which is based in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, has been open for a month.
"We are a company that takes people who enjoy art to exotic and unique places throughout the world," director Kelly Foster said. "(Our) workshops inspire and provide a rich cultural experience for all our participants."
The company transports people to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Mexico and Africa. Additionally, it provides tours of Santa Fe.
The tours or workshops address a variety of mediums such as painting, sculpting, tinning and stained glass. Workshops are geared toward beginners through advanced art enthusiasts, Foster said.
These workshops are done in different countries, she said, "so they can experience different cultures."
She explained when people travel aboard, they are taken out of their comfort zone, as result, they are more creative and less inhibited.
During a workshop, artists will paint in the morning and go on a group excursion during the afternoon. These excursions can be anything from horseback riding in Mexico, to whizzing down a zip-line in Costa Rica to going on a game drive in Africa.
