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 paint in town. 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.
Half Moon Bay has the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Pillar Point Harbor and lots of great beaches we are discovering every time we go. It's close to the Bay Area and perfect for a 4 night painting trip. We stay at the Half Moon Bay Lodge on Rt 1 just two miles south of Main Street. All of the locations are where the beautiful views are very near the parking areas so there's no hiking unless you really want to!
