About this trip

We will be embracing the beautiful change of season in picturesque Glastonbury, Ct. at The Connecticut River Valley Inn and Artists Rising Creativity Retreats. Join us for 5 days of artful nourishment, chef prepared meals on our beautiful historic property in the historic town of Glastonbury, CT with direct river access.  Guests will have 24/7 access to the studio and the grounds, with opportunities to kayak, bike, paddleboards and add-on excursions. Enjoy unlimited laughter and friendship with kindred spirits while we learn Learn to Paint with Confidence from Christine Camilleri.

Learn to Paint with Confidence

Imagine a beautiful painting with gestures of color and light; a painting that expresses your power as an artist with clarity and statement.


Most artists are hesitant to explore the concepts of color and light in their paintings and so they risk having a flat, uninteresting, timid work that they are disappointed in without understanding why.


This course will take you and your work to a new level no matter where you are starting from.  You will learn about concepts you have heard about but have not been able to put into your paintings — until now.


Things like:

• how do I bring bolder color into my work?

• how do I design and create with confidence?

• how do I fill my paintings with eye-catching light? 

• how do I paint with gestures that are energetic and loose?

• how can I use dramatic lighting to best effect?

• how do I learn to see with an artist’s eye?

• how can I prevent my painting from going sideways before it’s too late?

• how do I know when my painting is finished?

• and so much more.


Please join me on a journey filled with joy and growing confidence as I share with you my love of art.
