Art Retreats for Your Business

Art Retreats provide a peaceful time for you and your staff and board to de-stress, refresh, and re-connect as a team.  The retreats are fun, easy, and no art experience is necessary. They are wonderful opportunities to try something new or to re-visit your creative side.

During my retreats you learn painting techniques and create your own artwork.  It’s not a copy and paint workshop where everyone paints the same picture.  I really hope that after participating in my retreats you are inspired to grow as an artist and you dig out your drawing pencils and sketch again or sign-up for a painting class.

You can treat your staff, board, and volunteers to a wonderful Art Retreat during a regular meeting, as part of a strategic planning retreat, or as a special time you set aside to thank your staff for their wonderful work.


Retreats are one hour in length. I provide simple guidance and demonstrations so that everyone can then create their own artwork.  I’m a mobile artist and travel to where you are to teach the retreat in a conference or event room with a sink.

Project Options:

  • Intro. to Watercolors – Try out a variety of neat painting techniques and create your own watercolor.
  • Intro. to Color –  Experiment with paint and color mixing to create your own colorful watercolor.  


Retreats are for one hour and pricing is $150.00 for businesses and $100.00 for non-profit agencies/associations, a $5.00 per participant materials fee, and parking charges if applicable.  The Retreat fee is due the day of the retreat.  Class minimum size is 10 and maximum group size is 15.  $50 is due ahead of time to reserve the retreat date.  In case of cancellation, $25 is non-refundable and $25.00 will be refunded to you.

What communities do I teach in?

  • Reno and Sparks Nevada

Schedule an Art Retreat:

Retreats need to be scheduled at least 1 month in advance. Please email me with a couple of dates and times that you have in mind, information on the group who would participate, and which project you would like to create.  I’ll contact you to finalize the retreat details.  To secure the date and time that we agree upon I charge a $50 fee which goes toward the full payment which is due on the retreat day.  In case you need to cancel, $25 is non-refundable and the remaining $25.00 will be refunded back to you.

Email me at to schedule your retreat or if you need more information.
