Top 10 Reasons Why Photo Retreats Enrich My Life

Top 10 Reasons Why Photo Retreats Enrich My Life

Over the past eight years, I've worked hard at perfecting the art of retreat planning along with developing my own creative practice as an artist.

I've been fortunate to build highly successful retreat programs for artists at two destinations in the Midwest (one on Madeline Island, the other in beautiful, Bayfield, WI) where internationally recognized instructors lead retreats.  Not only have I helped thousands of students experience the chance to "dig in" and develop their creative vision with a retreat or workshop, now I have the honor of sharing how travel with OPEN AIR PLACES can nourish the creative spirit.

Read on for my list of the top 10 reasons why I think retreats are a must for artists!

It’s - 10 degrees today where I am, and my views outside are a palette of white and various shades of gray.

I know a few artists who do grays exceptionally well. My favorite is Joseph Zbukvic, known worldwide as a Master Artist, and who is famous for his use of grays in his watercolor paintings. He’s even collaborated with Daniel Smith to create three luscious grays which are lovely for studio and plein air painting.
