We are excited to be planning the 2nd Art Immersion Retreat at the Mansions on Fifth in Pittsburgh, Pa. Last year's event was such a success that two additional workshops have been added. The 4-day workshops will be held during the summer, a beautiful time to visit Pittsburgh.

The Retreat

The newly-renovated McCook Reed House, next door to the Mansions, will be reserved for the artists and workshop use. The retreat includes the four-day workshop, a Sunday evening welcome reception and cocktail party, daily breakfast, lunch and snacks, four nights lodging, and full use of the Mansions facilities.

The Four-Day Workshop

"Creating Stories Without Words"
July 29 - August 1, 2013


We will start with the basics of design, composition and achieving a likeness in watercolor. As the workshop progresses, we will focus on creating a work of art that tells a story, elicits a mood or reveals an emotion.

We will learn:

How to achieve a likeness and accurate values
About light and form
How to use color effectively
Exercises for good design and composition
To go beyond the photograph and tell a story with our art

There is also special pricing for couples. While you are attending the workshop, your spouse or partner can spend the day exploring the city or just enjoying in the ambiance of the Mansions. You have the evenings free to dine at the many wonderful restaurants around Pittsburgh, grab a cocktail at the Mansions bar with the other guests, or just rest up for the next day in your luxurious room.
