Upcoming Summer Retreat August 2016

August Art Retreat
12 to 16, 2016

Darkness & Dawn

Peach blossom, Rosa, and Green give luminosity, as ethereal world presents itself to balance the earthiness of Blacks and Browns.  We will explore lightness and weight through color and the art of painting.  The moving colors awaken our own inner movement and we begin to perceive a motif that condenses from the flowing color.   
Taking the theme of Persephone ( a Greek myth), we will aspire creativity to awaken the motif artistically.  Mornings are devoted to this ongoing exercise of watercolor veil painting.  Afternoons, a variety of artistic exercises devoted to compositional work inspired from Emily Carr and Lawren Harris’s art.  One outing will be sketching & painting in the National Forest.  We will practice techniques from the ‘Group of 7’ to apply in our own
