Art of Africa is a group of young artists in Victoria Falls who came together with the aim of exposing African art to the rest of the world. They offer great products which allow you to explore your artistic side in different environments within the Victoria Falls area.

Art of Africa Workshops

There are several tours offered, although longer and private workshops can be made available.

A river cruise painting workshop on the Zambezi River in Victoria Falls - ZimbabweBreakfast Cruise Workshop (Zambezi River) Just after sunrise, this exclusive breakfast cruise takes you on a 3-hour workshop on the Zambezi River. After a short cruise upstream, the boat will be moored at a chosen site. The guided art class will begin right after, with a local Zimbabwean artist showing you how to interact with your surroundings on a personal level. Your brush and paints in hand, absorb and capture the ambiance of the Zambezi. Allow your sketchbook or canvas to become a visual diary of your African experience.

It is very likely that you will have the river to yourselves - the perfect peaceful setting for the painting. Coffee and croissants will be served throughout the workshop

Painting during a river cruise in Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe You can opt for the colorful and creative acrylics, where you will be painting on either wood or canvas, depicting the bright colors and richness of Zimbabwe. Whether you want to use brushes or your own fingers, you get to take home a unique piece to remind you of Africa and its eccentricities. Most acrylic pieces also have the option of being made into clocks – an awesome souvenir of your time spent in Africa. The second option is the Watercolour and sketch, where you learn the delicate nature of watercolors, and their ability to transform reality into memory through brushstrokes. From postcards to A3 size paintings, capture the essence of the Zambezi.

Cultural Village Art of Africa Workshop (Ndebele Village)

Painting workshop at a village in Victoria Falls 15km on the outskirts of Victoria Falls town lies a beautiful Ndebele Village, belonging to the Mpisi family. Their traditional huts and communal living area truly depict the culturally rich lifestyle of Africa. Embark on a cultural experience, not only including a tour of the village but an interactive workshop with a local artist. Your tutor will be one of the Village Headman’s sons – a truly hidden talent on the Zimbabwean art scene. Catching your memories through oils, watercolors, beading, or finger painting, you will be able to take a piece of Africa home with you – in your own shade of expression. Spend your time immersing yourself in local culture, along with a traditional meal under the Mopane trees to conclude the workshop. A true African encounter.

Elephant Wallow Workshop (The Wallow)

In this workshop, you are taken to the Elephant Wallow where the Wild Horizons elephants are kept. You will be introduced to the facility where you learn how the elephants got to be there and the kind of work that goes on at the elephant sanctuary. Next, is a magical interaction with these huge but gentle creatures - you get to feed them and see how they interact with people as well. This is done safely behind an elevated deck - after all, these are still wild animals and they are huge. After the interaction, the art workshop starts. Sit under the shade with your easel, canvas, and paints which will be waiting for you. Finger paint the elephants while they play in the mud, or use your brush if you wish. The artist will direct you on how to do this and will guide you if need be. Lunch will be served at the restaurant before your departure. Read about our experience here.

Dinner will be served at the restaurant after the painting session.

Painting in the Rainforest (Victoria Falls Rainforest)
