IMAGINE - A very DIFFERENT retreat experience in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the ”City Different”

It is a rare treat to immerse yourself in art for an entire week - especially with like minded companions, and that is exactly what you will do at these retreats. Just imagine a whole week of carefully balanced lessons, field trips, studio visits, and lots of time to hang out and practice what you learn. You will make new artist friends while living together in a beautiful Santa Fe home, surrounded by natural beauty. You can cook your own meals if that is your preference, or take advantage of Santa Fe’s great restaurants. You can hang out in common areas inside and out to create together, or take private time in your own bedroom. You will leave refreshed, replenished, and confident in the new skills you have learned. You will not want to leave and will never forget this wonderful adventure.

There are four retreats to choose from in 2018:
