ANITA ELDER – 2024 Getaway Plein-Air Retreat

JUN 5 to 7, 2024 – $385

Wednesday to Friday: 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

Spring is the perfect time to be painting outdoors in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains with its spectacular views. Our location for this retreat will be in the Suches Valley, two hours north of Atlanta on Blood Mountain. Our retreat will have us staying two nights (third night if you are from out of town) at “Getaway Chattahoochee” tiny cabins (see link below). Each student is responsible for renting their own cabin prior to signing up for the class. Anita has spent time at the cabins and says “the cabins are beautiful, modern, cozy, and come with all amenities.” The cabins have a queen size bed, and some have a queen bunk in addition, if you wanted to share with a friend. The cabins also have small kitchenettes so guests will need to provide themselves food for the stay. Getaway does offer a “Sustenance Box,” details on the website, for an additional cost paid with reservation.

Each day will be a different location starting off with teacher demo and students painting after the demo. Anita will be on hand to help each student. This retreat is for beginners through advance. In the evenings all will be invited to gather at one location to enjoy a fire pit and company. Please contact Anita Elder at info@artloft.net for more information.
