Artist Retreat Program

The Tranquil Art House

Relax and create at your leisure. For writers, thinkers, performance artists, visual artists, existentialists and creative people. At the Tranquil Art House you are allowed to ‘just be’.
If you are looking for a more dynamic experience, you are invited to participate in the ‘creation station’

Building the vision together

Become part of the collective art experiment. Leave your mark on canvas, in clay, in mosaics, photo exhibition, or in whatever medium inspires you. Enjoy the ambience while participating in a unique and dynamic art project.
