Creative Landing Art Retreats

Both of these retreats are open to all mediums! 

Once a year, I lead a week-long art retreat in Scotland. In addition to this, I also host retreats on the coast of Maine, at Creative Landing Retreats. 

These retreats are not based on your portfolio... they exist to invite artists of all mediums to experience time and space away from their daily routines, environments, and obligations. They allow creative time to reflect, make art, relax, and explore a new area with new inspirations. Immersion into an area other than your home can be healing and inspiring. Something magical happens when artists explore their creativity within a new community!

There are no mandatory scheduled events during either retreat. The time is all yours to do what you wish. There will be some opportunities for you if you wish to participate. Examples might be a one-day painting class, a mosaic workshop, an outing to one of the local islands, etc. However, these retreats are meant to give YOU time to reconnect with your creative self, and have the freedom to explore your own medium in a new environment.

About the program

The Scotland Art Residency is open to all creative people! All mediums may apply, including but not limited to photographers, writers, musicians, painters, jewelry artists, mosaic artists, fabric arts, etc. - however please keep in mind that there is NO traditional studio, and you MUST be prepared to create your own creative space (indoors or out) and avoid any art production that could cause even the smallest damage to the castle. This means bring drop cloths if you plan to paint!- and NO glitter! This is a large castle, and there will be no shortage of places to create both inside the castle and out.

There is an optional one-day glass mosaic class, given by myself, Amanda Edwards. The class runs approximately 6 hours, and includes all supplies. The fee for the class is $265 per person.
