Arts Retreats & Workshops
Where Creativity Thrives
Since 1964, groups of creative people have been coming to St. Mary's Art Center to stay, learn, create, inspire and enjoy comradery with fellow artists. This wonderful tradition continues today with retreats focusing on watercolor, plein air, writing, scrapbooking, yoga and many other mediums.
In addition to building rentals for retreats, we also rent our art studio, dark room, print room and other spaces individually for day classes and workshops.
We offer special discounted rates for creative retreats, nonprofit organizations and artists. Contact us for more details.
