Do you yearn to express your creativity and your love of life and nature through the gentle tip of a paintbrush? Join Jacalyn Bennett in this beginners workshop for aspiring artists who are ready to experience the joy and tranquility that comes with creating a work of art. Following Bennett’s easy, step-by-step process, you begin by creating a Renaissance-inspired landscape painting on a wooden triptych panel, which will be ready for display upon completion of this retreat.

With an open heart and the willingness to welcome the essence of creativity into your being, Jacalyn encourages you to take a leap of faith and believe in your inner artist.

Together, you learn a practice of breath awareness, explore the healing aspects of color, and enjoy the calmness that comes along with developing your creative instincts.
