Learn how to use tools in a new or different way or even how to begin creating.
Try new techniques, and step out of your comfort zone!Connect with a community of like minded artists at all skill levels!It’s time to save your spot for a get away to meet fun, talented artists!

At the centre point of everything in life, the heart if you will, lies creativity. We are all creative! If we weren’t, we would not have the almighty wheel, texting (aka the new age telegram), cars, roadways, homes, music, dancing, delicious food, a name, even family members for that matter? Where would we be?
Sometimes along our personal journey we get creatively stuck and need a jump start to recharge our batteries or just need to step aside from our normal everyday lives. Have time to breathe, laugh, make friends and take a leap of faith in ourselves.
All SKILL levels always welcome!

Just far enough away to feel removed from everyday life. Loved the pools. Glad to be able to share this with a friend.
