Learn to paint with nature with a quiet mind, for joy and connection. This daylong art retreat is offered on three Saturdays this summer on Salt Spring Is., in the studio & the garden.

  During this special day you will learn the Creative by Nature Art Method, a heartful contemplative painting practice that supports authentic creative expression with natural ease and deepens nature connection through art. You will learn truly fun, playful yet surprisingly simple ways to burst with creativity as you build painting skills and boost your art confidence.

 Quiet mind techniques that merge painting with deeper connection to self, others  and nature will be presented. Nature art encounters focused on touch, sound. pattern and light will build a new painting practice to call your own, or boost your current practice with fresh energy. You will feel confident to paint anywhere anytime.
