How to Plan an Art Retreat


How to Treat Yourself to an Art Retreatthumbnail




Going on a retreat of any kind is relaxing, revitalizing, invigorating, and soul nurturing. There are numerous types of retreats you could choose, but creating your own art retreat will bring you hours of satisfaction and open the door for your creative muses to come out and play.

Going on a retreat of any kind is relaxing, revitalizing, invigorating, and soul nurturing. There are numerous types of retreats you could choose, but creating your own art retreat will bring you hours of satisfaction and open the door for your creative muses to come out and play.





Before you begin, decide what kind of art retreat you want to go on. If you have always wanted to dabble in paint, now is the perfect opportunity. Whether you have an interest in clay, beads, papier mache', or sewing, a trip to the arts and crafts store is your first stop. Getting the supplies you need beforehand so as not to be interrupted during your retreat is important.

Schedule a time for your art retreat when you can turn off the phones, step away from the computer, and have a block of time devoted entirely to yourself. You can have a beautiful art retreat in your own home with your favorite music in the background, or grab an easel and paints and go outside. Even if you have never picked up a piece of chalk or pastel before, bring your pad of paper to the local park and try it out. Doing this will help you empty your head, and open yourself up to creating.

Whatever you choose to do, the most important thing is that you take the time to do it. Taking an art retreat can nurture your soul, and give you a mini-vacation from the daily grind. Everyone is creative, but many people neglect that aspect of themselves. You can take a toilet plunger, dip it in paint, and make circles on some butcher paper. Doing an activity such as this is fun, and allows your creative juices to flow. If getting away from the family is impossible, include them in your art retreat. Your kids will love it!

If creating is not your thing, you can schedule an art retreat by taking a trip to the local art museum. If photography interests you, grab a camera and spend the day shooting. The main thing is to give yourself time to connect with your artistic and creative side to add balance into your otherwise busy and hectic life.



Tips & Warnings

  • Feeling creative? Go to the arts & crafts store to see what interests you.

  • Schedule time when you can be alone and not disturbed.

  • Have fun with your creations.

  • Opening up your creative side is important to balance your busy life.

  • It's never too late to go on an art retreat. They are for all ages.

  • Can't get away? Take an art retreat with your children.

  • Art retreats are addictive.
