- Often, retreats are more economical (even with the instructor fee) than a regular vacation
- Research shows that retreats have a longer-lasting positive effect on your mood than vacations
- Artists must bring their own supplies.
- Suggested supply list.
- A good, broad brimmed hat.
- A camp chair (or similar) with an umbrella
- a simple painter’s palate
- a water well. (I use an old bouillon cube container with a screw-top lid)
- a water bottle
- sack lunch for Saturday
- sun screen
- paper towels, rags, or toilet paper for cleaning
