Illustration Intensive 2018

About us

ILLUSTRATION INTENSIVE 2018 | July 20 – July 23, 2018

Immerse yourself in illustration techniques and gain tools for storytelling.

Explore the ever-changing children’s book market with authors, illustrators and art directors who are currently in the field. Come learn new techniques and enjoy the camaraderie of artists who understand your passion. Daily hands-on activities will challenge you to sharpen your illustration skills with support and guidance from our talented mentors.

The sessions you’ll find in this workshop will help demystify the publishing process and give aspiring illustrators and storytellers the tools and insight into how to find and advance ideas through play, doodling, book dummies, character development, and more.

In addition to illustration techniques, you’ll also explore:

  • Dummy preparation
  • Storyboarding
  • Continuity
  • Portfolio expectations
  • Character development
  • Self-promotion
  • Finding a market

Your work will receive personal attention through one-on-one critiques from your mentors, group critiques with peers and publishing professionals, and feedback from special guests at our portfolio showcase.

Please note: we are still adding faculty to this workshop.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
