Monhegan is a creative place, inspiring numerous artists since the mid-19th century. Some who found inspiration on the island were George Bellows, Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, and the Wyeth Family.
Come experience this magical island; create, eat, and share with other artists.
Your hosts: Tara Hire, a certified Yoga instructor and nutrition counselor and KiKA Nigals Artist and Art Educator.
This all-inclusive art and yoga retreat is set on beautiful Monhegan Island. The month of May is quiet, only the birds are migrating through. Winter residents are waking from their long winter hibernation and the light and color of the island is magical. There are endless opportunities to paint plein-aire and beautiful compositions wherever you look.
Artists of all mediums are welcome
poets, musicians, painters, writers, photographers, crafters
all creative people will enjoy this retreat
Artists will be inspired not only by the land- and sea-scapes but also by the artists who live and work on Monhegan Island. The island is home to several year-round and seasonal artists whom work in a variety of mediums, including oil painting, water color painting, wood working, rope work, and paper cutting.
Thursday and Friday the group will visit a different artist, see their work, and hear about how Monhegan inspires them; hands-on demonstrations with some of the artists.
Mornings include yoga and inspiration. Artists have all afternoon to explore and create art at their own pace. Aid will be provided in choosing the perfect spot to paint and in getting materials to hard to reach areas.
