      A great time. Kristy is such a gentle teacher and guiding light. She knows so many tricks and techniques! The Inn was wonderful -- food, ambience, location, owner! And we were blessed with perfect fall weather. A wonderful workshop and week!
      By Nancy G for Kristy Kutch - Colored Pencil: Vivid and Versatile on Oct 21, 2023
      This was an interactive art retreat with colored pencil artist and author Kristy Kutch. We learned many techniques and new uses for colored pencils. We also explored the use of different papers. It was one of the best art retreats I have attended.

      This was my first experience with a watercolor workshop. It was everything I hoped for.... full days of painting in a beautiful location with generous and accommodating hospitality. Michael is an excellent instructor who offers patience and encouragement to students of every skill level. I hope to take another workshop with him in the future.

      I am super happy that your first experience at a workshop/retreat was a positive one. I am aiming to make our workshops and retreats the ones to attend. I hope you can return in the future. Hopefully we will have our greenhouse and lap pool installed!!!

      Michael shared his knowledge unsparingly and with humor. He is a wonderful and inspiring teacher. The location, accommodations and Pat and Wayne (B&B proprietors) were all we could ask for. The attendees were an amiable, humorous and inspiring group. All in all the days were magical.
