Workshop spaces are sold on a first come, first served basis and have a maximum limit of 22 students – 17 with accommodations and five day passes only. The deconstructed art retreat is an intimate workshop where we invite our students to delve deep into their artistic selves to nurture and experience one’s full range of inherent creativity. We attempt to the best of our abilities to create a safe space for artistic exploration and discovery and ask our guests (students) to support a nurturing and safe environment for all involved. We ask for and support respect for self, others and our environment/living/work spaces during the entire time of the retreat.
