This retreat will offer you time to reconnect with your artistic and creative side at wonderful Jericho House, a beautiful venue nestled in the Niagara countryside.
We will gather late Friday afternoon for refreshments and social time. Dinner will be served at 5:00pm and after dinner we can relax in the gardens and enjoy some lively conversations before retiring to our own private rooms with ensuites.
It will be an early rise Saturday morning for a lovely breakfast, after which we will then head outside to do some Plein Air sketching and gather ideas for painting. We will spend a few hours outdoors and there will be a boxed lunch provided. We will head back to Jericho House after lunch and spend the afternoon painting. Beverages and snacks will be available throughout the afternoon.
Should the weather not be suitable for outside sketching, we will have several images of the local area for inspiration to choose from.
Dinner will be served at 5:00pm , and then at 7:00pm will enjoy a wonderful hour long relaxation Yoga Session to round out the day. The evening will offer free time to visit with other participants, or spend quiet time on your own.
After breakfast Sunday morning, we will spend a few hours working on finishing paintings and have an art show of everyone's pieces just before lunch is served. After lunch there will be a small closing quality creative time. Beginners are very welcome to join in and discover their hidden talents.
