We have two artist retreats each year, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn, during which we invite you to join us for 6-10 days  to create art using a range of 2D media. Our retreats are inclusive of all levels of experience from the beginner to the accomplished artist. Our facilitators have lots of experience of working  with diverse groups of people and will encourage you to explore as your interest takes you. The retreats include the chance to visit some inspiring locations to paint, draw, photograph with the group or independently. 

Transport is  provided to nearby venues to paint in addition to working space in the centre and in the Maison Quaker garden. There will be a facilitator from Saturday evening to Friday morning. The other 4 days are optional and can be used for continuing projects or sightseeing.
