Paintrock Canyon Ranch
June 16 - 21, 2024
Writing and drawing inner and outer landscapes.
Join us for 5-nights in the striking landscapes of the Paintrock Canyon Ranch while finding a sense of place in your creativity. Host Mari Andrew will lead sessions to explore themes of belonging, displacement, otherness and longing, and teach you tools to help tap into your creativity and connect more deeply with yourself and your surroundings.
Spend each day riding or hiking through rolling meadows and canyons, seeking out journaling spots under ancient petroglyphs and pictographs. Each session will encourage you to write or draw settings from memory, and collect inspiration for studio time back at camp. Leave the workshop with a better sense of your own creativity and be empowered to take this forward in your own life and work.
All levels of creatives and riders are welcome.
