    December 6th, 7th, 8th, 2019
    Friday 5 pm- 9 pm
    Saturday 8 am-7 pm
    Sunday 10 am-4 pm
    Friday night you will arrive at the studio and we will watch the new Van Gogh film, At Eternity's Gate, starring Willem Dafoe.  Who knows? Maybe we will have an absinthe cocktail (or two) as well? 
    Saturday we will travel in a large passenger van to the Columbia Museum of Art to see the blockbuster exhibit: Van Gogh and His Inspirations.  We will have the day to enjoy a rare opportunity to see 12 of Van Gogh's paintings and drawings!  His paintings rarely travel due to their fragility so this is going to be an amazing treat!  Our tickets include admission to all of the museum galleries so get ready to explore and be inspired!
    Sunday we will paint like Van Gogh-Donna will guide you through one of her Van Gogh inspired lessons.  
    The retreat price of $450 includes all food, admission to the museum, transportation, and art supplies.  On-site accommodations will be reduced to a special rate of $125 a night, with the exception of the Master Suite.
