Brush Strokes With Lesley - Fun for all ages!
Retreat 2017!

It has been a fantastic weekend at the retreat!


Fantastic people, fantastic artwork, fantastic food and fantastic fun!  It's been a long time in the making and I had a wonderful time!  I can't wait to do it all again next summer.  You should all be proud of yourselves, your artwork is just amazing.  For most of you, you are used to coming to a class for one medium, this weekend you got to try many different mediums and it was great to help you on that learning journey. I think some of you have found a new love for a new medium and that is just wonderful!

We kicked Friday night off with an acrylic painting.  Everyone did a fantastic job!


Saturday morning we had wonderful time learning to draw, skies, water, trees and rocks. 



Lisa Porter, owner of Ochre House made us a scrumptious lunch!

In the afternoon we starting print making. 



Not only did participants take home 6 paper prints, they also put their designs on their own canvas tote bags!



It wasn't all art at the retreat!  We took the time to walk the beach, go for a hike, make new friends, we even have a great game of washer toss!



Saturday night was monochromatic night.  Everyone did a fabulous job with their greyscale creations before heading out for a campfire! 


We introduced Joanne to her 1st ever smore and she taught us a new campfire song!
