A Unique Art Studio Retreat in Alberta Canada
I invite you into my private Art Studio located in Alberta, Canada, for two special days to paint, speak art, share healthy food and explore the beauty of Kananaskis country on the Ranch. I will assist you on how to flow the spirit of an animal or place with brush and paint onto canvas.
The Unique Art Studio Experience is overnight with meals and good art conversation, an in depth experience into my Studio and Art world! I have listed options to fit each individual. Private sessions are the most powerful but teaching in twos is educational too. My base rate is $50/hour for private lessons, $70/hour for two. Supplies are $18/session/person. Canvas is $32 extra. You will come out of this with a finished vibrant colorful painting ready to hang on your wall and a foundation that will prepare you to paint on your own. It takes minimum 6 hours to 8 hours to complete a painting in this method the first time. Dates are flexible and will be decided between the two of us.
Private Lessons: This two-day special package is $264 first day, $225 second day (no overnight). Supplies $25/day for brushes and paint. $32 for a Gallery canvas. If no supplies the package is $571. With your own paint and brushes $521. This includes the prepared canvas. All food is included with the overnight package. Bring your own wine if you wish.
Schedule: Arrive by 10pm on first day. Paint from 10-12. Free time until 2pm. Lunch, snowshoe, x-country ski or just walk around the 480 acre Ranch. 2-4pm paint. Free time until 5:30-6pm. Dinner and conversation from 6-8pm. The painting will be intensive so breaks are essential. You will complete a 16x20 painting. It is important to send images of what you would like to paint beforehand along with your experience in drawing and painting.
This opportunity is open to beginners, and those who want to revisit painting from long ago and accomplished artists that would like a foundation in painting in full-spectrum color. Please see link below for supplies and more info. I encourage you to visit this teaching link to see photos of my students. My specialty of course is to teach how to paint the spirit of horses.
