“If you've considered painting but never thought you could, or if you're trained in the arts and would like to explore your source of creativity, this retreat is for you,” writes Aviva Gold. “As children, we naturally paint in a powerful, intuitive way, purely for the joy of expression. This freedom can be regained.
