The Idea

A creative incubator for young artists; a safe and nurturing environment for inquisitive minds and unique personalities. The artists are surrounded by the tranquility of scenic forests and mountains. Our days are centered around art - we explore a multitude of mediums with plein air (outdoor) and indoor projects throughout the day - with breaks for food and fun activities. Activities include lake swimming, horseback riding, campfire goodies, group baking, and an award ceremony to top off the week and celebrate the artists. Our time together includes very limited time with very limited electronic devices: enjoy nature, art, and friendships. 


Age Requirements

Students could be as young as 7 (if ready to spend a week away from home) and as seasoned as 18-19 (and occasional college-bound young ladies, who still manage to join us).
