One-Day Painting Retreat

About

Take part in a one-of-a-kind Plein Air event on the outskirts of the village Saltaire.

With your easel on the deck, overlooking the River Aire, you will spend 6 hours soaking up the overpowering force of nature and transferring your vision onto canvas. Located just a few meters from the weir, it is an event providing a feast for all senses!

A 45-minute break in the middle of the day will nourish your body with a delicious lunch, while a glass of prosecco towards the end of the day will warm your soul. You will leave fulfilled and inspired.

DURING THE RETREAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:

• Space at your own easel with a view of the river
• Your own canvas
• Selection of brushes and acrylic paints
• Individual attention of the tutor
• Selection of mezze platters, some of which are also gluten-free (plenty of veggie and vegan options available)
• As many cups of tea or coffee as you feel the thirst for
• A glass of wine to celebrate the day

WHO IS YOUR TEACHER?

The retreat is led by the artist - Nina Hunter. Nina graduated with a Master’s Degree in Graphic Design and Fine Arts from one of the most prestigious academies in Poland, where she followed the traditional path, learning to draw under renowned Polish Professors. Nina is the founder of Saltaire Art School and a Visiting Lecturer at Leeds Art University.

WHERE IS THE EVENT?

The retreat is based in Nina’s studio home. During the event, you will have a chance to see Nina’s work and enquire about life as a professional artist.

WHY IS THIS RETREAT UNIQUE?

This is a one-of-a-kind event in the artist’s garden, directly overlooking the River Aire. During the session, you will be positioned on the deck, only a few feet away from the river and the weir and the stunning rural landscape behind it.
The event is open to 6 participants, with the teacher’s attention focused on your creative journey. It will almost feel like a one-to-one experience.
