Art Retreats: a chance to get together!

Since our classes are online, we like to get together in person at an art retreat!

Beach retreats at Emerald Isle have been a tradition since 2021. In 2023, we added a mountain retreat near West Jefferson, NC. 

The 2024 retreats will be announced in December.

If I'm flying in, how do I arrange transportation to the retreat?

Mountain Retreat will use CLT Airport

The Beach Retreat uses RDU

Don't schedule a departing flight before 3:00pm EST on the last day. Contact Courtney by email: courtney@delightfulartco.com to arrange for transportation to and from the airpor

Can I wear a bikini?

Yes. It's just us girls.

What kind of art will we do?

Acrylics and Watercolors

At the mountain retreat we painted on denim jackets, which was great...is it too hot to do that at the beach? I don't know...maybe denim shirts?

Do students share rooms?

Yes, students will be in shared rooms. There are no single rooms available. When registering, students can request someone specific to share a room with. Rooms typically sleep 3 or 4 girls. There is a variety of bunk beds and other combinations of beds.
