Come take advantage of quality time with two of the top oil teachers in the field - 3 fun-and-learning-filled days with each - to hone your still life skills, and do it all in the comfort and tranquillity of one of the most popular retreat centers in the East. You'll love the classes and love the convenience at Dayspring.

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! http://dayspringfla.org/

How much is the seminar?

The seminar fee for all 6 days of classes is $350.00. As always Sherry and Cheri will both be teaching on camera, with step-by-step demos on the monitors in both classrooms. You'll have great viewing and wonderful color reproduction to help you accomplish all the detail to make these the most gorgeous pieces you've ever painted. The seminar fee does not include the prepared background surfaces you paint on, or your instructional packets with multiple reference photos. Classroom purchases may be paid for at week's end.

Dayspring Retreat Center is within an hour's drive of most major metropolitan areas in Central Florida with especially easy access for flights into Sarasota. If you wish to sign up for the 2 Sherries Workshop and need transportation from the airport, I feel sure we can help you with arrangements.
