Artist Getaway in Occidental California is a painting vacation in the coastal redwood forest. Occidental is a small town nestled in Northern California beauty. In Occidental we stay at the Occidental Hotel and paint en plein air, The Russian River, Bodega Bay and the Sonoma Coast are only ten scenic miles away. We will go to a location each day as a group to paint and meet at 5 pm back at the hotel around the pool to for painting sharing and discussion. 

In Murphys we go up to the Stanislaus River and Lake Alpine. ​​The Murphys Suites has a meeting room where we can paint together indoors too. There will be scheduled places to caravan to as a group and of course everyone is free to do anything they like during our time on an Artist Getaway. These are trips for all levels of artists, beginner to expert and we learn from experience and from each other in a casual and relaxing setting. There's no formal instruction, just artists having fun painting in the open air together.
