paradise artist retreatExcitement for the Paradise Artist Retreat's return to the Tamaya Resort in New Mexico is building every day! From March 25-28, this truly unique event will bring together scores of artists of all skill levels for four days of inspiration, learning, and art creation led by Alex Grey, Allyson Grey, Guy Aitchison, Jeff Gogue, Shawn Barber, Nick Baxter, Hannah Aitchison, and Chet Zar. Highlights of the retreat include a series of high-powered workshops with these noted instructors, along with morning figure drawing sessions, evening panel talks, and an open studio art room where artists can work side by side on projects of their choosing.

Seminar and workshop topics covered throughout the weekend include a visionary art workshop with Alex and Allyson Grey. Guy plans to go into detail about creating convincing texture effects on canvas or skin, while Jeff Gogue will focus on his energetic painting technique. Heads and hands will be led by Shawn Barber, and Hannah Aitchison will lead a figure drawing session with special emphasis on understanding the design aspects of the human figure. Chet Zar will lead a group painting session, and Nick Baxter will get into detail about his holistic process, where concept, design and execution all come together into a single big picture. It's a well rounded suite of workshops intended to benefit almost any creative person who is interested in learning.

The artist pass includes entry into all seminars from all the featured teachers, as well as the morning figure drawing classes and discussion panels. Of course, many artists will have originals and prints for sale, which can be displayed by their art setup in the open studio space. The event will be open to the public on the final day, providing an opportunity to show and sell original works or other merchandise.

The Tamaya resort is a tranquil, picturesque location just north of Albuquerque- the perfect setting for artists to get away, hit reset, and return home with a fresh perspective as well as a few new technical tricks. If you are a creative person, the Paradise Artist Retreat is truly a unique, humbling and empowering event that you should experience at least once.
