A Day in the Woods
A weekend of Art & Relaxation in the scenic Sierra Nevadas
JUNE 2021 / SOLD OUT!
Join us for a weekend of art and relaxation in the beautiful Sierra Nevada countryside. Celebrate nature and get inspired with not one but two workshops, Botanical Printmaking, and Mixed Media Collages with local nature artist Cassie Berube on her family’s private estate nested in the Sierra foothills.
Starting with Botanical printmaking we’ll take inspiration from our forest surroundings and you’ll learn how to create lush botanical designs on paper using a printing press, foraged plants, and flora. Cassie will go over all the techniques for creating dynamic prints from layering images to create depth to choosing complementary colors so your designs pop!
We’ll break for a beautiful picnic lunch under the trees, where a nice spread of organic veggies, snacks, home-baked goods, and refreshments will be provided.
In the afternoon we’ll explore Botanical Collages where you’ll learn how to create beautiful compositions from your prints using vintage papers, altered books, and more!
Unwind with an evening sound bowl session followed by free time to explore the numerous art installations and driftwood sculptures throughout the property. We’ll gather for cocktail hour and an evening meal family-style under the stars!
The next morning enjoy a light breakfast of home-baked goodies followed by a nature walk where we’ll forage for florals and plants to create beautiful nature mandalas. We’ll have a closing circle and sharing of our favorite creations before you depart.
