Red Clay 2019 Winter Retreats

Winter retreats at Red Clay are weekend intensive skill sharing sessions. They are intended to build both individual practice and a sense of  connection, community and friendship within each discipline. All participants are expected to contribute to meals during the retreat and to keeping the place clean and organized. A fee is charged to help with upkeep of the facility and basic supplies.

Drawing Retreats ($25)

Drawing retreats will be held the last weekend of each month from January to April. The Red Clay Drawing Retreat is an intensive weekend of drawing in a beautiful solar house and property in rural Nova Scotia. Artists collectively prepare meals, draw and work together, participating in 10 life-drawing sessions throughout the weekend. The February 22 drawing retreat will be a mixed life drawing and sculpture (clay) session. To facilitate this Saturday sessions will be longer poses to accommodate sculpture.
