Our brand new Figures & Portrait Artists’ Retreat offers artists a unique opportunity to work closely with models without instruction. A male and a female model will work with artists each day. There will be opportunities to work on various draped, costumed, and nude poses both in the studio and plein air. Artists can work on both short and long projects.
The idea behind this workshop is to explore the freedom of working with models in a more relaxed setting, allowing artists to achieve their goals at their own pace. It will be facilitated by our experienced male model, Rudy Vavra. Rudy has worked many artist workshops and, as an artist himself, relates well with the needs of other artists.
If you’re self-motivated and could use time to concentrate without instruction, or if you have a friend you want to spend time with, or you just want a relaxing art vacation, the Artists’ Retreat is for you. Take advantage of the spring blooms of upstate New York, or work indoors in the climate controlled Carriage House Art Studio. We offer a 6-night or 3-night option.
While artists interested in all subject matter and mediums are welcome to attend this retreat, please note there is a model fee included in the enrollment rate.
