What a treasured experience! The retreat was well thought out and presented. The host and instructor combined a wonderful experience of both Sicily and plein air. As a reflection set by them, the group of people attending were very enjoyable with great synergy.

This is an exceptional workshop experience for the novice or experienced painter. Rosetta was a fabulous host and Costa was a phenomenal instructor. I feel like I learned so much.

Sicily Artist Retreats was a magical experience in a gorgeous location. The workshop and teacher filled me with newfound drive, knowledge and motivation, while the hosts ensured we all came together like family. A moving experience in a beautiful setting with inspiring people. I can't wait to go back!
