Zen of Painting
with Jane Romanishko
 January 18 - 25, 2017
AND March 8 - 15, 2017

 

"The essential aspect of CREATIVITY is not being afraid to fail"

Don't worry if you can't paint or draw. This course is not about your skills, it is about getting your mind out of the way and let your heart lead your hand.

Zen painting is free, effortless, natural painting. If you never painted before, it would be a perfect start for you. If you are an experienced artist, you would benefit from this retreat as you won't have a pressure or judgment or any expectation from your work, just relax and watch your paint flow...

Casa Buena is a perfect place for that kind of retreat as it has space, tranquility and beauty in every corner of it. To make our day even more mindful, we'll do meditation and yoga every morning and walk by the ocean every afternoon.

Cost: $1500.00 plus GST including Instructions,
all art supplies, 7 days accommodation,
transportation from and to Puerto Vallarta airport, all breakfasts, lunches and dinners,
entertainment and a field trips

"The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state that makes art inevitable" Robert Henri
