We invite you to join us for a rare opportunity and spend 9 days in a historic Scottish Estate with Master Painter, Daniel Gerhartz.
The workshop is structured to have intensive teaching for 3 days upfront. Then we go into retreat mode. the workshop takes place in and around the magnificent manor estate, where you will be painting both models and the natural world on extensive grounds. Expect to become fully immersed in Scottish life and the surrounding countryside. Scotland boasts pristine waters and a fertile landscape that remains under the watchful stewardship of local farmers, landowners and the National Trust, to ensure that the land is unspoiled. Be prepared for a sensual feast while you connect with art, which encompasses long hours of daylight, the flora and fauna, and the countryside which is Scotland’s heritage.
After the stimulating 3-day intensive workshop, we will venture out and try out our painting skills in the beautiful landscape, fishing villages and historic sites in this region of Scotland. Evenings are spent on the estate for ongoing painting demonstrations, discussions, and art-related activities with Daniel and your fellow attendees. Daniel Gerhartz will be in residence with us for the duration of the trip.
Other activities include visiting Dunnotter Castle overlooking the North Sea, lochs, hills and glens, a whisky distillery for tasting, and of course, the village pub.
The purpose of the art retreat is to make art in distraction-free aesthetic surroundings! You'll find camaraderie, connections, motivation and above all, inspiration as an artist.
Suitable for artists of all levels and all media, from fearless beginners to painting professionals. Non-painting partners are welcome.
