Painting Retreat in Sicily, “Spirit, Mind, Body” October 27- November 3, 2024, Sunday to Sunday

The setting of Salinara, with its rustic beauty, farm fresh meals, and interesting excursions provides the perfect environment for our “Spirit,Mind,Body” experience.

Your artistic SPIRIT will be recognized, encouraged, and celebrated as you work with other creative participants.

Your MIND will be engaged by discussions of Art within the group, and your problem solving skills will be challenged as you are improving your painting ability.

Your BODY will be nourished with fresh food, walks, biking, and yoga sessions. The emphasis on this workshop is to help promote skill-building with your painting, regardless of your level. There will be two experienced artists, Qiang Huang, and Suzanne Enriquez Dougherty, providing plenty of individual attention to each participant in this small group. We will provide demos to clarify processes, and will offer critiques as requested. Easels will be provided, so only bring your painting supplies (list will be sent out before traveling). As an added bonus, a professional yoga instructor,Song Huang, will offer optional sessions . Yoga mats are available as are some bicycles. There will be some nearby excursions during the week to allow us to further experience this locale.

We invite you to join us in this relaxed, beautiful, historic place. Give yourself this time and space to joyfully become a better painter!

A sample day from this retreat will incorporate some painting time, some exploration, and some bodywork: See brochure from Salinara for the sample week. We will also set up a group page to discuss materials, topics, travel tips, etc. More details will be provided as we get closer to the date.
