A Slow Art Retreat by the Sea

By popular demand we're going back to this paradise island for the second year in a row! A slow living retreat in one of the most beautiful places in the world, on the mediterranean Island of Salina in Sicily!! Sicily is slow living at its BEST-- just being there will have you breathing deeply and everything on this island just, well, sparkles! I designed this retreat to rejuvenate & inspire, to connect creatives while making time for self care.

Our mornings will begin with a luxurious breakfast, followed by a meditation, a short Italian lesson, and a slow art workshop. The workshops will be led by myself (Brush Lettering, Sketching & Watercolor for ALL levels), and I've invited Carolyn of @theslowtraveler (travel photography for Instagram success) to join us again - I will let you know as soon as she's confirmed. In the afternoons you're welcome to take time for yourself at the pool or the rocky beach, or to join the group for day trips exploring the island (shopping, wine-tasting, swimming, tile-hunting, & a spa day!). We'll meet again for drinks & dinner out at lovely restaurants, sharing our stories into the night, and of course sampling the fresh & delicious local fare. On Day 4 we'll see the island by boat, stopping at secret swimming spots & for lunch (& the BEST granita in the world!!).

We'll be staying at the gorgeous boutique hotel Principe Salina, owned & renovated by the very lovely Anita and family. Each room has a sea view, and the chef prides herself on using the highest quality of seasonal fare. Anita helped me organize this retreat around a very special event that happens just once a year, the island's caper festival in Pollara (the lovely town where Il Postino was filmed!). It will be a special evening out where we'll join the locals to celebrate the full bloom of the fruitful caper flower! It will be a fabulous night of dinner and dancing festivities. We'll also go to my favorite restaurants on the island, and of course to Hotel Signum for aperativi at sunset, and spa time at their natural thermal baths!! Our last night we'll dress up for a decadent farewell dinner to celebrate our magical week together.

Fee:  $3500 - $4500

To reserve your place you can pay the total amount (non-refundable) or give a $1500 deposit (also non-refundable) to be paid in full by May 1st. Contact me to pay deposit directly.
