Emerald Isle, NC
$100.00 non-refundable deposit + $399 balance due February 15
Students arrive to our big beautiful beach house on the first afternoon and enjoy some time making new friends and walking on the beach. We have dinner together and then get creative with collage and paint. We will draw and paint all morning, spend the afternoon on the beach or by the pool and draw and paint again in the evening. On the last morning we finish up with one more watercolor and check out by noon.
Students can fly into Raleigh-Durham Airport and we will coordinate riding together to Emerald Isle (it's a 3 hour drive, so we'll try to get everyone in the same car.)
Price includes lodging, all meals, and most art supplies. (Students will want to bring their own brushes and drawing pencils. We may use art journals instead of canvas...more on that later.)
This is such a great experience...it's so nice to get to know my students in person! I've had students join the art retreat, then take an on-line course which is such a boost for them, they come in already feeling comfortable! Some students take the on-line class, and then come to the art retreat and we feel like we already know each other!
This gives me the chance to see how students are painting and work with them one on one on what they really want to work on.
We'll sit on the deck and talk about life and art and just anything.
We're fast friends because we have a lot in common...we love art and we love the beach.
We relax, paint, eat good food, and make good friends.
I hope you can join us!
