The Visiting Artist Series at Castle Hill

 


Set at the beautiful and historic Castle Hill join us for a series of five workshops that will combine the creative process of painting with the power of art journaling. Each workshop will be led by a different guest artist who will be teaching students to broaden their perspective for any subject, media and method. To complement and enhance this artistic journey, participants will learn how to keep an art journal to capture new ideas, record observations, set goals and record their feelings.

Upcoming Workshop: November 15th-16th 2014

Castle Hill Retreats is honored to have Claudia Bicen lead us in the first of our Visiting Artist Series. Coming from San Francisco, she is considered one of the preeminent pastel portrait artists in the country.

Testimonials:

You don’t need to be a “writer” to come to these retreats. You just need to want to write, have a story to tell, and have a will to write it. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that I got over my fears and kept chugging up the driveway when my heart was pounding on the first morning…

-Brett Batten Baker
The Castle Hill’s Writer’s Retreat of September 2013 was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. When I first heard about the retreat from leaders Donna Lucey and Henry Wiencek in July, my instinct immediately told me that I had to be a part of it. It was like a spiritual magnet. And my instinct was right.
