Taos, New Mexico

Art Adventure


October 21-24, 2021

Is the light in New Mexico REALLY as luminous and magical as they say? Join us for a retreat featuring fresh, sage-scented air, nurturing meals prepared by a local chef, wonderful company and a fascinating personal mapping project.

Taos is a charming town with wonderful museums and galleries and we will soak ourselves in artistic atmosphere and gather inspiration to create our own pieces during studio time at the retreat property.

Picture relaxed, creative, inspired, bohemian, YOU! 



In the magnificent fierce morning of New Mexico one sprang awake, a new part of the soul woke up suddenly, and the old world gave way to a new.”

- D.H.Lawrence


Explore art. Make art.

New Mexico has been an artists' mecca for centuries. Your trip here will be about your creative process, whether you've never touched a brush to paper before or have been making things for as long as you can remember.

You will find yourself in a safe space to ponder, to try new things, to inspire and be inspired by the atmosphere and your fellow artists! 







Our project is a fun and fascinating mixed-media visual journey through your physical and emotional places, using mapping as a process tool.

“Sometimes a map speaks in terms of physical geography, but just as often it muses on the jagged terrain of the heart, the distant vistas of memory, or the fantastic landscapes of dreams.” - Miles Harvey
