When was the last time you put your to do list aside, let go of all expectation and just let yourself explore?
Will you dedicate a weekend to tapping back into your creativity?
What if you knew your every need is taken care of, if only for a weekend?
I have just the place for you.
This fall, join an intimate group of women at the Create.Explore.Discover Art Retreat.
I know firsthand how important it is to take time to explore your inner creativity – and what a challenge it is to make the space.
I’m Sarah, your host for the weekend. Lately, I’m often hidden behind my camera or otherwise indulging my muse.
This hasn’t always been the case.
In a former life, I led interior design projects for some of the top design and architecture firms in Chicago. Like many artists just starting out, I craved a challenging and collaborative environment, where my creativity would blossom. Just like so many of you, I found the reality to be a bit more complicated.
If I could go back, I’d take better care of my creative muse; I’d carve more space for exploration and fun.
C.S. Lewis said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to live a new dream.”
I can’t go back, of course, but I founded the Create.Explore.Discover Art Retreat as the realization of this dream.
It’s exactly the place I needed as a young artist. It’s a place for women of all ages to find their inner muse.
CREATE in a warm, supportive environment
Create.Explore.Discover brings together a diverse group of women, from working artists to weekend explorers, to moms, looking to uncover their creative spark.
Retreat leaders Lisa Congdon, Mati McDonough, Alessandra Cave and Anne Weil will lead fun, creative sessions where you will paint, knit, design and explore with your camera.
EXPLORE and go deeper than you thought possible
No matter your skill – or comfort – level, Create.Explore.Discover is a safe space for experimenting and trying out new projects.
If you don’t currently identify as a creative individual, you will surprise yourself by the end of the retreat. If creativity is a part of your daily life, you will leave Create.Explore.Discover energized and brimming with ideas for your next project.
DISCOVER new friendships and connections in an intimate environment
Create.Explore.Discover is limited to 40 participants, so you’ll have the opportunity to form lasting bonds with both your retreat leaders and your fellow explorers.
Each evening, participants and instructors gather to make new friends that will inspire and encourage your artistic journey.
