Join us in a beautiful southern lakefront home for a creative retreat focused on nature painting in the open air, resetting our creative intentions, and cultivating community with other creative people.  

This gathering will be relaxed and refreshing as we each learn new skills from talented artists, linger over a homemade food, and enjoy refreshing afternoon tea. The retreat will be hosted on the shores of Lake Keowee in South Carolina. In this setting, we will deeply experience the charm of the south and enjoy creativity and inspiration in a slow-living environment. We will explore the natural environment of the South Carolina Botanical Gardens, and other local sites.

"This workshop is for anyone looking for a creative refresh, artistic connection with nature, or a community to grow in- beginner to advanced"
