SoCal Art Trip! Art Retreat 2019
Join me in Sunny California for a week full of art!
We will be doing acrylic paintings, plein air, as well as art journaling and a couple of abstract pieces. Paintings would be done M-F, leaving weekend days for travel. (I would be there 4/20-4/27) Each person will complete 5 Acrylic paintings which will be a variety of seascapes, floral and landscapes. (1 per day, about 2-3 hours each) 2 Abstracts which will be paint pouring and resin, or whatever you choose! (Each will be worked on a little each day. About 30 minutes/day) Each person will also receive a wonderful art journal and some journaling supplies so we can continue being creative outside of the classes as well as back home. You can choose to journal with me each day to learn some techniques and/or journal in your own time, anytime! Outside of these designated class times, the rest of the time is yours to relax and explore the beauty of California! The cost of the art portion of the trip would be $300/person and includes all art supplies, standing easel (to use during trip only) and instruction from me. Travel arrangements can be made individually but I will offer suggestions for places to stay. My first choice of location would be Oceanside/Carlsbad because I’ve been there a few times and have friends there who’d possibly like to join in on some classes. Nearest airports are San Diego and Orange County/Santa Ana. (Both are around 30-45 minutes) Plane tickets for that week to San Diego are $256 (from IND) right now, which is a great price! I predict they will stay around that price or maybe a bit lower as long as they are purchased by end of February. Orange County/Santa Ana prices are about $50 Higher at the moment, but I always check prices for both when I go. I love to rent via AirBnb and HomeAway instead of booking hotels. There are plenty of 1 BR rentals for around $100/night or grab some friends and find some 3-4 BR for $200-250 per night. All in all, you could easily do this trip for around $1500 per person. Which is a great price for some R&R in the sun with plenty of creative juices flowing...AT THE BEACH! I would need at least 4 people committed by February 28, with a $50 deposit (plus $1 fee is paid online)
