Our mini-painting retreat will take place at Rosewater Gallery – Alena’s beautiful new art space and boutique.

Taking over a good part of the gallery, we will create, connect, collaborate and deepen our wells for creative expression.

The workshop will take commence Saturday morning – Sunday in the late afternoon. You will want to secure your own lodging based on your budget needs and desires! Asheville boasts a variety of hotels, BnB’s (some in historic Montford, which is walking distance to downtown), or you could also go the AirBnB or VRBO or hostel route. (Alena can always help you decide if you wish to contact her). For dinner (as an option), we can go out to eat at the delicious and varied restaurants all nearby and in walking distance, or grab food to go and picnic at a nearby park! The downtown area absolutely comes alive in the evening on the weekends – with artists, buskers, and street performers! It truly is such pure delight to live in this fine city (named Happiest City in America and top place to visit in USA by Frommers and Good Morning America). Expect the unexpected and allow surprise and fascination to occur for yourself for this long weekend! It’s going to be so such a delight. (Please note: lodging and all meals besides lunch not included in workshop fee).

About the workshop:

In this mini-retreat, we will explore natural world motifs, colors, lines, and liberated expressions through paint and mixed media. There is much power and healing that comes from painting in this way, which can serve as a potent and loving symbol and reminder for your life that emanates truth and purity. All materials will be included for a small fee, except surfaces to paint on (you will bring those based on Alena’s suggestions). We will be working on both easels and doing some table work. At the end of the experience, you will walk away with two treasured paintings that not only have personal meaning, but are full of technique-based learning along with tapping into your intuition and soul-guides. This workshop is amazing for building depth to your portfolio, while increasing your knowledge on how to make gorgeous work. Alena will be sharing a lot of her tips and secrets with you, all the while going deep into our sweet soul work and enjoying the lively creative atmosphere of downtown. We will also have a little time for a trip to other galleries, some shopping, and other delightful activities…. it’s going to be a rich and fulfilling experience for certain.
