Last year’s Retreat was was so much fun and so inspiring that we decided to do it again in February 2016.

 

It was life altering.

 

Don’t Miss Out!! Last year this retreat sold out in just 9 days.

 

And to make sure there is something for everyone including those who missed out last year, we are doing 2 retreats on Back to Back Weekends. The first retreat is a repeat of the original, the second is a brand new concept Back to Back No Rules.

Back to Back “The Original” is the first retreat designed to appeal to everyone. You spend a day with both instructors together where you learn the basics and then a full day with each individually where you learn the ins and outs of their Art Journaling process and the secrets that make their styles so distinct and exceptional.

Back to Back “No Rules” was designed based on feedback from last year’s alumni. They told us where they wanted to take their art journaling next and Dina and Dyan have designed this retreat to get them there. This retreat is not for beginners, it’s designed to take you beyond your current limits.
