Our studio for the week

This 1825 historic chateau was spectacularly restored, decorated and fully furnished in 2007 by world-renowned interior designer David Hare.  There are spacious living and dining areas and beautiful park-like grounds. Most important, there is wonderful space for our studio art projects.

Explore, Create, Learn.

You will find yourself in a safe space to ponder, to try new things, to inspire and be inspired by the atmosphere, your fellow artists, and your expressive art facilitators, Cindy and Abby.

 

You will get an in-depth overview and fun, unique insights into works that we visit in Paris, and have a chance to explore the rest of each museum. Then on studio days, we will present clear guidelines for the project inspired by our visit. There will be ample studio and free time all week to continue to work on projects. And, if you would rather relax on the lawn or take a bike ride, feel free!

Your hosts with the most.

We are partners in Bohemia, an art studio in Boulder, Colorado. Abby has been empowering people creatively and leading art retreats all over Colorado for years. Cindy has led many informal trips to her childhood home  of Paris, has lived and traveled extensively abroad, and knows the ins and outs of Paris. We love bringing art to people, and people to art! 

The details

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young (wo)man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you,

for Paris is a moveable feast."

-Ernest Hemingway
