‘I can’t paint!’ 

‘I want to be more expressive!’

Is this you?

If so, you’re not alone – many of us haven’t picked up a paint brush since school and that’s okay!

​At ARTHOUSE RETREAT STUDIO you are invited to let your creativity run wild in a nurturing and non-judgemental space. Your creations aren’t ‘good’ or ‘bad’, they’re your expressions of the moment! Some people will paint recognisable images, others will paint shapes, some will paint colour and others will paint words. There is no ‘right’ way to paint – the focus is on the creative process and having fun rather than achieving a ‘perfect’ end result!

*No art experience required – it’s a wonderful process of exploration!

*ARTHOUSE RETREAT STUDIO is situated on the first floor accessed by two short flights of stairs – no lift (sorry).
