Every now and then, you might have an urge to go on a vacation that’s a little different from what you might be used to. For example, you might be thinking about going on a vacation that’s completely focused on arts and culture instead of just partying with your friends and family members. If that’s the case, then we’ve put together a few helpful tips that will assist you in planning an art-focused holiday to inspire you.
Do plenty of research into your location
It’s a good idea to do a bit of research before you decide to choose a location. Since there are so many art-focused destinations in the world, it’s hard to decide where to go from just memory alone. That’s why we suggest reading articles such as The Betsy Hotel: A First Class Destination for Arts and Culture to help you learn a bit more about the more unique locations around the world that serve as art and culture hotspots. Sure, it’s easy to just go to a major city and visit a museum, but there are so many unique experiences out there that you can’t just assume that a city or large town will have everything you’re looking for.
Sometimes, the art that we’re looking for that could inspire us isn’t in a museum or building. After all, art is subjective which means that inspiration can also be subject to our personal preferences. That’s why it’s a good idea to always try something new, to get out of your comfort zone, and to give something else a chance.
Take equipment to capture memories with you
Depending on what kind of art you’re interested in, it’s a good idea to at least take a camera with you so you can take some high-quality pictures. If you’ve got a good smartphone camera then that’s perfectly fine too. In addition, many artists like to bring tablet devices so they can sketch things and take notes as they walk around and browse museums or cultural hotspots.
Bringing equipment is all about saving your memories and ensuring that you have something to look back on when you return home. After all, it’s no use feeling inspired if you can’t take it back with you!
Identify different art scenes in the countries you plan to visit
There are probably loads of unique art scenes in the countries that you’re planning to visit. So much so that there are likely loads of niches and interesting art cultures that you may never expect. For example, Beijing’s contemporary art scene is a great place to start if you plan to visit the city. However, you’ll also find a lot of traditional art from China as well. There are so many different choices that it’s hard to get a good grasp of a country’s art culture without fully exploring all of its different facets.
In short, make sure you’re doing whatever you can to explore the different spectrums of art in the country you choose to visit.
