Join Nikki for a relaxing weekend watercolor retreat at a cozy modern cabin in Leavenworth.

We will spend the weekend learning a handful of watercolor techniques, exploring the beautiful mountain area, and doing some field painting on our hiking or snowshoeing adventures! We'll be staying at a beautiful, intimate lodge tucked into the Leavenworth hills. In the evening enjoy expansive views of Tumwater Canyon and The Enchantments from the hot tub.

The Weekend!

August 16 - August 18
Leavenworth, WA, USA

Day 1 - Get To Know Everybody
Join us for a happy hour and dinner tonight! There is plenty to do from enjoying a roaring fire to relaxing in the hot tub or exploring some of the trails around the cabin. We will have a taco bar dinner together tonight. Come anytime after 6pm.

Day 2 - Let's Paint!
We will start the day together with a sunrise yoga session followed by breakfast to fuel up and get centered for our day. We will begin with a short hike/snowshoe to find inspiration in the beautiful natural world. We will take our observations and sketches back to the lodge to spend the morning learning watercolor techniques to capture that magic on paper with watercolor and ink. There will be time to play, practice, and experiment. Plan on painting from the landscape around us, or bringing pictures to work from. 

After lunch, we will plan on a hike or snowshoe do some field painting!

In the evening you will have the option of cooking in the cabin or joining me for a group dinner in Leavenworth.  (Dinner tonight is not included)
