V is for the Vast array of workshops we have to offer.
From playing with paper, fabric, fiber, clay, metal and any vintage object you can think of, we've got something to delight every mixed media maven out there!
I is for our amazing Instructors.
Hand picked by our staff, our classes are taught by the most amazing people at the top of their industry. Several of our instructors have published books, won awards, appear in galleries, and sell their finished goods because their work is the best in the business and because they're in such high demand!
R is for Relaxing and Recharging at our Retreat.
Okay, so there's only one R, but these three go together like peas in a pod. Not only do you get to break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but you get to recharge your creative batteries at our mixed media art retreat! And let's not forget that this venue is right on the beach, with an oceanfront view from every room. Now that's relaxing!
G is for Guidance.
You're not in this alone. Your desire to explore new avenues of art and expand your creativity is all you need to bring to Art & Soul. Our teachers, our staff, our shop owners and other attendees will hold your hand the entire way. There's nothing to fear but not stepping out of your comfort zone!
I is for Innovative.
Our workshops showcase some of the most unique techniques and wow-factor projects. From collage to jewelry, art dolls to book making, and everything in-between, the art you'll make while you're here will impress everyone... including yourself!
N is for New.
Each year we have new workshops, several new instructors, new projects, new attendees, new themes, new goodies in our stores, and new old stuff (and new new stuff) for you to sift through at our Vendor Extravaganza. There are so many new opportunities at each event, every year, that you'll never run out of new stuff to learn or do!
I is for... another I? That's 3! Let's make this I for Imagination.
Because that's what you get to use when you come to Art & Soul! Combine like-minded people, supplies galore, interesting mixed media tools, and inspirational instructors... and you cannot help but set your imagination in motion! So put on your thinking crown, and come join us!
A is for Activities.
There is never a dull moment at Art & Soul! In fact, there's very little time for not being creative. There's eating and showers and such, but otherwise, we'll keep you busy! We've got an opening night party. We have day classes and night classes. We've got an on-site store open every day. An incredible Vendor Night with original art and items to re-purpose for sale. We've got contests. And giveaways. And demos. And places to create in your spare time. We even have some impromptu gatherings and have been known to host a pajama party or two! Oh, and that gorgeous beach to walk on any time of night or day.
So whatever your delight, and no matter how you spell it, VIRGINIA Art & Soul will light up your creativity and fill up your soul. We've got so much to offer, won't you come join us? For information and registration, visit us at artandsoulretreat.com.
