Painting Workshop Retreats In Anchor Bay & Guernville, CA

No painting experience necessary!

Many of my friends and family wanted to have have an opportunity to experience the joy and freedom of painting, so we created "Weekend Painting Workshops at my studio. Over the past four years, we have hosted almost one retreat a month with many students returning for a second and third weekend.

The workshops are at my studio in the charming, small town of Anchor Bay on the Northern Coast where "the redwoods meet the ocean" approximately 2 1/2 hours from San Francisco. I am blessed to have an incredible art studio overlooking the ocean surrounded by a redwood forest.

And now I have a new 3-D project I am working on..."This Old House"."This Old House" will be completed in May of 2016! So I'll be offering workshops at our new playhouse abode as well. This "Old House" is located in the small quirky river- town of Guerneville, California located in Sonoma County, 1-1/2 hours North of San Francisco. We are walking distance to the Russian River, main downtown shops and restaurants, miniature golf, beautiful Armstrong Woods and only minutes by car to 10 or more incredible wineries.

Wherever you catch a workshop, it is a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend in the country where we just paint. Within each of us is our own individual creative center. You contact that center during the weekend. I encourage you to paint, paint and paint some more... But most importantly - we have FUN! 

Workshops are very small (4-7 people) so enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.
