This semi-silent week will provide professional and amateur artists of any kind — poet, painter, sculptor, playwright, photographer — the opportunity of time, space, and contemplative atmosphere, to do their own work, allowing the creative spirit to emerge. The beautiful, peaceful grounds of Mariandale inspire and nurture creativity.
Participants can spend the day pursuing their art, and come together for meals, shared reflection, and creative support. Participants need to have an identified medium, bring their own materials, and be able to work independently. All skill levels are warmly welcomed.
Dates & Times: Wed., June 6 at 5pm to Sun., June 10 at 11am (all meals included)
