Choose from the following to create your itinerary:

Art + Chocolate Tour

Sample the eye candy on a guided tour of Grand Rapids Art Museum and tantalize your taste buds with a decadent selection of gourmet chocolates. Scheduled on request.

Brush Studio

Enjoy wine, beer and food while a talented artist walks you through the process of replicating the painting of your choice or a custom painting developed especially for you. 2-2.5 hours.
