Hi friends! I just got back from an inspiring week in Morocco with a group of amazing women who came to be inspired by this mystical land and paint together. I planned out daily watercolor workshops and balanced out painting time with cultural excursions organized by my retreat partner, Coco from Travellur.
We had a great group of talented artists who were able to make 3 full paintings during our week together! I love spending this intimate time with a small group like this because I can really get to know you and your personal style.
We also painted Hand of Fatima and I was just amazed by what a good job everyone did!
This day we also had a lovely picnic in one of the Villa gardens. The food was delicious and we hung out all evening chatting about life.
We also took a day trip to the Ourika Valley where we had a free day of activities. Some of us chose to go on a camel ride, take a hike or enjoy a Hammam spa treatment.
We also did plenty of shopping at The Medina! So many treasures.
We also made custom postcards for each other as part of our closing ceremony. We did it secret santa style. So much fun!
Oh! I almost forgot to mention our day trip to the famous Majorelle Garden, is a two and half acre botanical garden and artist's landscape garden in Marrakech made famous by Yves Saint Laurent.
I hope you enjoyed a peek into this beautiful week we spent in Morocco. It is such an honor to have students fly from all over the world to spend these extraordinary experiences with me. I hope to continue to host retreats in the future because they are just so special!
Any guesses on next year’s location? :)
