About the event

Immerse yourself in creativity with our very first art retreat! All levels of experience welcome as we explore painting with mixed media techniques. Studio sessions are interspersed with gallery visits and artist chats. Relax at the end of each day with dinner at the retreat residence and sharing circle/journaling time.

Art sessions will be located in Jennifer's studio, with access to all professional supplies: Golden and Liquitex acrylic paints, watercolor paints, brushes, stencils, collage ephemera, inks, mediums, pastels, colored pencils, heavyweight paper and a selection of canvases. You will have the opportunity to try several techniques and decide on your main project (whether that's a series of small pieces or one large piece) in the subject matter of your choice. Jennifer's concentration is florals and abstracts in a mixed media style. There will be magazines and art books on hand for perusal.
