July 13th-15 2018, join artist Lisa Vanin for a weekend retreat at the beautiful Moonshadow cabin to learn how to use natural reference to enrich your practice. This workshop invites guests of any creative or non-creative background to explore nature, collect reference, and create works of art based on their own unique inspirations and experience. Lisa works closely with her personally collected database of reference, to create art pieces in different medias and techniques. This practice continues to add substance and the richness of understanding the natural world to her stylized work. Over the course of the weekend, guests will be encouraged to explore the land to collect objects and images to later use as inspiration for their own art pieces. Lisa will introduce the group to linocut, sculpey molding, and painting techniques that can be used during the stay to create works. Connect with nature through art and open yourself up to the inspiration that you will surely encounter at Moonshadow Cabin

Meals for the retreat are centred on local, seasonal food and sometimes include foraged items gathered on our own trails. The region offers us a bounty of small-farmed goods which inspire beautiful, nourishing meals, tailored to individual preferences and needs.
