About This Retreat

One of the most rewarding and artistically nourishing experiences is the Artists' Retreat, offering artists their most valuable resource: TIME. Time to focus solely on art without the constraints of every day life. This is a true residency-style experience – immersion in your work, your artistic self, your creative community. Fran offers support by helping each artist to understand their work and their role as an artist. In this way, the work moves to another level. So often artist focus on the making and fail to reflect on the work to understand the way and the what for.

About This Critique Class

Open to beginners and seasoned artists. Most artists work in isolation without the advantage of receiving feedback on their work. Here is the opportunity to not only hear how your work is "seen and interrupted by the viewer", how to create feeling and power through your images, experiment with challenges, but also how to paint intuitively while staying positive and focused on your passion to paint, and to learn from the critiques of other artists' work.

There is time for 6participating artists to exhibit 2-3 works of art to be critiqued. Artists are asked to bring in “works in progress”.  All observing artists will listen to the critiques but cannot exhibitany works.   If you are unsure that youwant to participate on Friday, why not come to observe and see what it is like.  

Dates, Time & Location

No Summer classes.

We will resume in the fall and meet once a month on the second Friday from 1:30 – 3:30 PM at the Artists' Workshop in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
