How many artists can attend this retreat?

This retreat will have only 15 spots for artists (1 single occupancy / 14 double occupancy)

Where is the retreat located and what airport do I fly into?

The retreat is located on the island of Mallorca approximately 1 hour from the Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI). Once you have registered, we will send you options for transportation services from the airport to the retreat center.  Each attendee will be responsible for the cost of transportation to and from the retreat center but we will assist with the shuttle service arrangements.

What kind of clothes should I pack?

The most important thing to pack is your painting clothes!  Comfortable walking or hiking shoes would be helpful as you will be surrounded by nature. The temperatures are mild but the evenings can be cool so we recommend a light jacket or sweater (make sure it’s one you can paint in)!  The average high/low temperature in October is between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit (10-26 Celsius).  Most of the time will be spent painting, connecting , eating, and relaxing at the venue with a possible optional excursion nearby.  You might want to bring a change of clothes for dinner but it's completely optional - and casual.  Some will return after dinner to continue painting! Don’t forget your swimming suit if you want to take a dip in the swimming pool!
