Astrakhan Reserve offers comprehensive art tours, unique in the Astrakhan region. Guided by experienced artists, participants engage in creative activities. The unique nature of the Volga delta provides great inspiration.
Exciting excursions along the reserve’s waterways await visitors. Trips can be arranged to the Delta Discovery trail. There under the shade of the trees bird songs can be enjoyed and the secrets of the gallery forests discovered. Stunning views from the fore-delta’s observation tower await visitors. Visitors will encounter some of the many birds inhabiting Astrakhan Reserve, such as majestic white-tailed eagles, graceful swans and soaring bright kingfishers. These represent only a fraction of the delta’s avian species.
Once visitors have had the opportunity to view the Volga delta, it’s time to create! Impressions will fill art canvasses, including use of the cold batik technique, or drawing on silk. Paints and other art materials will be used for these creative endeavors.
Of course, visitors will keep the masterpieces they create. Under the professional guidance of master artist Irina Butokina success is guaranteed! Irina has extensive experience in conducting art workshops, creating complex paintings and applying many interesting techniques.
The result for participants will be creation of a genuine silk art keepsake which will delight for years and serve as a reminder of a special trip. The tour provides everything needed for the activity: high-quality materials which are non-toxic, moisture resistant and light-fast.
Art tours are all-inclusive. Astrakhan Reserve provides comfortable round-trip bus transportation to the tour site, arranges accommodations in comfortable rooms and all meals. Experienced guides lead the boat excursions.
