Paints, brushes, canvas, and paper are supplied. If you would like to bring your own brushes, you can, just label them with your name so we don't mix them up.

Plan to take home two canvases 16 x 20 with paintings on paper in between.

All meals included. Meals accommodate gluten-free or vegetarian options. (Dairy-free upon request.)

What to bring List:

Shorts and t-shirts that you can paint in

A hoodie or jacket in case it's cool

flip flops for the walk to the beach

toiletries (shampoo, etc.)

swim suit or 2

Snacks to share (optional. If you're flying in, you don't need to bring any snacks)


Beach Towel

Water bottle (if desired)

Wine, etc. (if desired)

You can bring your own paint brushes, be sure to put your name on them (I'll have student-grade brushes)

(If you're used to professional-grade brushes, bring your own.)


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

If you're flying in, we can coordinate and see if another participant is driving from RDU to the beach and see if they will meet you at the airport. Email courtney for more info.

How do I get my artwork home if I'm flying?

You'll have 2 canvases that are 16 x 20 inches. You'll put paintings and drawings that were done on paper in between the canvasses and tape the canvases together. They fit into most suitcases. If you forget them or they don't fit, I can ship them, but it will cost $25, which you'll have to pay upfront. (And it takes me a while to get it done.)

What kind of art will we do?

Collage, drawing with charcoal, acrylics, and watercolor
