    Costa Rica provides the ultimate blend of tranquility and excitement and the perfect setting for inspiration. We are returning to this enchanted Paradise and hope you will decide to join us for 7 nights and 6 days as we create art, explore, and re-energize in this tropical haven far away from the stress and demands of daily life. Patti Euler, Kristen Powers, and Terry Quinn will be your hosts again this year and they have planned a week full of unique mixed media workshops designed specifically for this venue, all of them included in your package.We are extremely excited to announce that we have a special guest artist joining us this year. One of Costa Rica’s premier artists, Jacques Quillery has agreed to help us refine our painting techniques and teach a one day acrylic painting class. Jacques will be sharing his approach to painting Costa Rica flora and landscapes and his use of bold tropical colors. This is an amazing opportunity, and we feel a major highlight of our retreat. You can check out some of Jacques’ work at
All of our mixed media art projects have been designed so that you will complete them before you leave. Throughout the week there will be plenty of open studio time allowing you to continue creating, and we promise there will be plenty of time to schedule excursions, go shopping, or explore the outdoors and nature at its finest. Zip lining not your thing? Relax on the beach, take a dip in the pool, or indulge in a massage or facial at the OnZen Spa. There’s plenty to see and do in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
