Where are we painting? And when?

At the beautiful Dayspring Episcopal Retreat Center, in Parrish, FL, May 22 -27, 2017. We'll move from the Oceans of Color Conference with SDP in Daytona Beach to Parrish, FL, on May 21st, arriving just after 3:00 pm to move into our sleeping rooms, and then after dinner we'll set up in our lovely, well-lit classroom with classes starting the next morning. You'll paint three days with Sherry C. Nelson, MDA and three with Cheri Rol, MDA - in small groups designed to give you all the help and input you'll need to create these gallery-quality works of art.

Dayspring Retreat Center has everything we could wish for

This is a marvelous place to settle in for a week of painting. We'll bring our binoculars in hopes of squeezing in a little early-morning birding, check out the beautiful walkways and explore the forest canopy walkway. Kayaks are included too, for paddling the beautiful Manatee River. And we'll all relish the comfortable lodgings and THREE awesome meals a day, all of which is included with your semi-private occupancy rate of only $90.00 per day! It's going to be a delight to share this special dual seminar with you, to unwind and to savor every minute of our time together in this lovely, and peaceful setting, surrounded by birds and beauty. Plan to join Cheri and Sherry for this remarkable one-time event!
