Instructed and facilitated by the talented and vivacious Susan Nicholas Gephart, the annual Hameau Farm Artist Retreat in Big Valley, Pennsylvania, is a great opportunity to share, create, and learn all things art and plein air. Details here.

Registration with the 2018 Hameau Artist Retreat is open, hosted in beautiful Big Valley, Pennsylvania, between May 14-19. Headed by Susan Nicholas Gephart, the “Hameau Farm Studio Artist Retreat is a gathering place for artists to share, create, learn, and have fun,” Gephart says. “The unique studio, variety of landscape views, gourmet food, and camaraderie compel the artists to return. From the beginner to the professional artist, Hameau captures and inspires the creative spirit in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
