MARCH 25 THRU 27, 2022

The idea of creating together in an “atelier” with a professional artist, where a small number of students and apprentices make works of art under the master’s guidance and supervision has been in Rassouli’s mind for a long time. As we move out of the pandemic, he is going to conduct a new painting retreat focusing on a new approach in:

Is this retreat only for artists?

Whether you are a professional artist or you have never held a brush in your hand, if you are looking for a thrill in your life, this retreat is for you. While creative exploration is a major theme of the experiences, we believe creativity is not only on canvas, but life itself is the greatest artform and the way we see, think and communicate can be among the most important creative choices we ever make. No matter what career path you are on, or where you are at in life, you will find this retreat has a lot to offer you.

What exactly happens at this retreat?

Retreat participants gather to connect their hearts with one another from around the globe in a great variety of artistic mediums, or whatever empowers them to create and inspire. The retreat is held in a safe, supportive, environment free of judgment, in atmosphere filled with inspirational creative energy, camaraderie and Joy.

This retreat is a blend of creating artworks, engaging discussions, creative exercises, individual reflection, sensory experiments, group adventure, beautiful spaces and lots of joy and laughter. All of these moments thread together, forming something exquisite and beautiful that must be experienced to be understood. Many attendees have life-changing epiphanies, gain clarity on tough choices, feel inspired to pursue forgotten dreams and find their best friends. We highly recommend you come see for yourself. 

You will have the opportunity to open up to the flow of your inner creator to create your “self” as artwork , while creating several works of art. You will practice on canvas to get rid of confusion, chaos, lack of focus and develop the confidence to carry what you will experience into your everyday life.
