AMPLE TIME TO EXPLORE
AN ART HOLIDAY!
Join us for a fun and fabulous all-inclusive week relaxing and expanding with like-minded creatives. Unblock, get your juices flowing and explore gorgeous Tuscany!
No art experience is necessary, so bring a spouse or a friend and let us translate your Tuscan retreat into a life enhancing break from the everyday.
Mornings will start with a sumptuous breakfast buffet and then lead into morning group art and writing exercises guided by artists Lisa Zukowski and Christopher Staples. After a Tuscan lunch prepared for you, your afternoons are free to explore Medieval and Renaissance towns on your own, just unwind, or work in the medium of your choice. In the evenings we will gather around the piazza at our agriturismo, where we will dine on gourmet Tuscan delicacies, drink local wine and join in inspiring discussions and fun activities sure to bring your creativity to the next level.

GET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOWING!
Find your heart. Find your art. Find the heart of your art.
Surrounded by the stunning visual beauty of Italy and the stimulating company of others seeking artistic growth and expression, your art will be revealed.
Where do ideas come from? How do we translate them into art? We will unlock the answers to these questions through a variety of daily practices.
For many of us, art begins with seeing. Forms, color, light, nature and the stars inspire us and inform us. Visual observations work their way into our hearts and are the seed of our art.
For others, art emerges from materials and tools. Found objects, stained stones, or a crushed leaf may become a palette, pigment or pedestal. Working in new ways opens new pathways.
Insights also emerge from discussion. Artists see and understand the world in unique ways, and when we connect, the conversations make us grow. New ideas emerge from the heart and find their way to expression.
These ideas come most easily when the mind is unblocked and free from the cares of daily life. They come when the world and people around us stimulate our natural positive energies.
Your retreat leaders are experts in art making techniques. That’s the easy part. More important is that they know how to stimulate the great energy and art that lies within you. Through daily practices, creative art noodling and sharing, the art that is within you will rise up naturally. You will bring these insights and energy home to your daily life, renewed, re-energized and ready to make the work that satisfies your heart at the deepest level.
RELAX AND REINVIGORATE!
Since your retreat is all-inclusive, we take care of all the details to make enhance your vacation. We can even arrange a massage, a cooking lesson, bicycles or a special excursion-like a winery tour or truffle hunting if you’d like (for an additional fee).
