An Art Immersion Retreat at the Mansions on Fifth

The first ever Art Immersion Retreat was a rousing success! The retreat included three full days of watercolor portrait painting instruction by yours truly, discussion, and critiques in the luxurious surroundings of the Mansions on Fifth.

The Mansions is a turn-of-the-century restored boutique hotel located in Shadyside, a beautiful neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pa. The participants stayed at the Mansions, enjoyed a sumptious breakfast and lunch each day, painted in the spacious parlor, and afterwards, explored the amazing sites of Pittsburgh. We also had a private tour of the Carnegie Museum of Art's new "Impressionism in a New Light" exhibition.

We painted each day in the beautiful, light-filled parlor of the Mansions.

After a hard day of painting, it's time to relax in the bar.

Ah, spoiled rotten! A delicious lunch was created by Chef Eric
and served in the dining room each day.

The Art Immersion crew heads to the Carnegie Museum for a private tour
of the new Impressionist show.

I hope you can join us for next year's retreat. To keep the personalized, intimate feel of the retreat, space will be limited to no more than 12 participants. Stay tuned for details!
