2016 Women’s Alpine Art Retreat

Day0FlowersPROMOThis year is unique in that we’ve moved our retreat dates to August 14-19, to include more of the late summer. With the one month jump forward one participant from last year gleefully declared, “more wildflowers!!” In addition more activity on the lake, more subjects to sketch and maybe even lively music on the lodge deck weekends will add to the atmosphere.

These are fully packed, yet gently paced, days of creativity. Each day includes personalized instruction with your tandem teachers Elaine Frenett and Jean Warren. Along with learning we take time to savor the beauty of the sparkling lake and relish fascinating food.
