13-15 May 2016 (may be repeated 20-22 May)

Art Retreat Ida Mountain. Join this creative adventure! Explore your colourful inner landscape and express with natural colours!

Magic of the Ida mountain and the munay-ki healing rites will contribute to this enriching experience.

Intuitive painting is not about the painting you are going to produce but about the process you will experience. The process of letting go of your thoughts and connecting with your inner self. Everybody can paint with the intuitive techniques we use. No experience or “talent” is required. In fact, academy trained artists work side by side with absolute beginners in Earth Colours workshops.

The beautiful painting that emerges during the workshop, comes directly from your subconcious and may have a message for you. Many of my students experienced a reunion with their soul during my workshops.

Still, there will be more than painting during this weekend!

On the Ida Mountains, the air is so pure, food is so delicious here that you won’t need much to be happy. Let’s not forget the stillness. The only noise you hear will probably coming from the sheep bells.

This is our programme:


We start the day with relaxing and grounding exercises in the clearing of the forest!

rich breakfast with delicious local organic food

making all natural paint from farm products

warming up with earth and charcoal

painting from your intuition with various intuitive painting exercises
