Daily Itinerary

We organize Hameau Artist Retreats based on registration. We use the information you give us in your registration to decide on morning and field demonstrations, as well as excursions to other locations.

 

Certain demos may use a specific medium, but Susan has the unique ability to make her demos relatable for artists of all mediums.

 

All artists of all levels are welcome, including professionals.
