Previous experience in painting is not required. During this retreat, you will have a great time playing and enjoying painting in acrylics while learning the basics of color and techniques.  Best of all you will have a fabulous time connecting with other like-minded women in a relaxed environment.

You will be staying at the spectacular Hacienda Camino Al Mar in the heart of beautiful Bucerias, Mexico, approx 21 km from Puerto Vallarta. Enjoy the gorgeous five-star accommodations, two saltwater pools, a personal chef to cater to all our every whim, maid service and so much more.

Hacienda Camino Al Mar is located directly across the street from the beach and offers you a great location to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Dorado (the gold side) of Bucerias. The spectacular rooftop patio is the perfect place to enjoy a cool beverage while watching the sunset….and the sunsets are magnificent!
Hacienda Camino al Mar captures the romance of old Mexico with over 8000 sq ft of elegant Spanish Colonial style living and modern conveniences. The villa was designed by renowned Puerto Vallarta architect, Arturo Ramos, to enjoy the ocean air and to blur the line between indoors and out.

Morning meditation is available for anyone wanting to participate.
We will enjoy breakfast as a group in one of the lovely open air dining rooms each day and after breakfast we will head to the studio. Our studio will be open daily, with each attendee having there own set up space, standing easel and table top easel and all suppies needed to enjoy painting throughout the retreat.
