The Art of Tranquilo with Tim Cahill



16-22 January 2020



Come enjoy a writing retreat in the car-free village of Yelapa on Mexico's Bay of Banderas. Study with beloved travel writer Tim Cahill in an unpolished paradiso fueled by sun, cerveza, and seafood. After waking in your open-air casa, amble down the beach for a session of guided writing with Tim, and then enjoy the day sketching, swimming, hiking, boating—or all of the above! This trip will balance rest and adventure. Want to sip margaritas in a hammock? Want to salsa dance in the moonlight? Want to enjoy Huichol art? How about spearfishing? Whatever your interests, you will find plenty of inspiration for your journal.

The Artist's Life with Mindy Carpenter



4-10 April 2020


As Audrey Hepburn wisely said, “Paris is always a good idea.” It’s easy to see why Audrey Hepburn said “Paris is always a good idea.” With its boulevards & bridges, galleries & pâtisseries, Paris is also full of good ideas—as seen by centuries of artists & writers who have found inspiration there. For six days we’ll explore famous haunts & live our own artist’s life—creating with painter Mindy Carpenter & wordsmithing with writers. We’ll make local friends, eat at brasseries, & get to know Paris the way all good artists do: through flâneurie—the simple practice of wandering and looking in the beloved City of Light.
