Join me for a 3-day mixed media retreat in August 2024.

Introducing: Mixed Media Exploration-It's only paint and you’re the BOSS!

Have you ever wanted to take an art retreat in beautiful San Diego? Here’s your chance to learn mixed media techniques or improve your artistic skills while creating fun, colorful, textural pieces. My studio in the thriving Liberty Station Arts District overlooks a lovely Tuscan-themed wine garden with olive trees where we will gather for a welcome reception.

In this 3-day class, I will teach basic and advanced techniques for those who are ready to reach the next level in mixed media. We will explore how color theory can make your work stronger. You will apply your personal creativity and intuition to transform a pair of wooden panels and a totem into unique decorative art pieces using handmade collage papers, acrylic paint, oil pastels and sticks, charcoal, stencils, and spray paint. I will demonstrate how to use different materials and tools to apply distinctive textures. A guest artist will teach gel printing images and more. 

The arts district of Liberty Station is surrounded by fine restaurants, museums and galleries, theaters, the San Diego Watercolor Society, a 9-hole golf course, mini golf, winery, and Liberty Public Market. We are minutes away from San Diego’s downtown, Gaslamp District, Little Italy, historic Old Town, Balboa Park, and Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma. After class, check out Mission Bay or nearby La Jolla and Coronado.

Discounted hotel rates at Courtyard by Marriott, Liberty Station, will be available, walking distance to the studio/retreat center.

This is a Three-Day IN PERSON workshop held at my studio in San Diego at Arts District Liberty Station:

Cost: $995 includes all art materials (two 14in x14in cradled wooden panels and one 6in x 48in totem). Space is limited to 8 people and fills up quickly. All you need to bring is yourself.

“It’s only paint and you’re the boss!”


Reception: August 1, 2024 4pm-6pm at Carruth Cellars at Liberty Station
Retreat: August 2-4, 10:30am-4pm
