Satori Artist Retreat

Satori Artist Retreat is a creative sanctuary on Panmure Island, a tiny island off the coast of Prince Edward Island, linked by a two kilometer beach causeway. Satori Retreat is for artists or everyday people who simply crave a quiet place to rejuvenate, create, or simply relax and breathe.

It is a quiet pretty place where artists can do their own thing and work on their projects. We have been running for four summers now. We still have spaces available for August and September.

We would be happy to talk to you about Satori Artist Retreat and give you more information. You are welcome to build a stay that meets your needs, but we recommend a three day minimum stay.

The Painter’s Essential Landscape Class – Negative Painting
Conjure the spirit of the landscape in this innovative program. Discover secrets and strategies for interpreting and simplifying the landscape as you build your painting from the ground up with overlapping bands and interlocking shapes.
Learn negative painting strategies and the successful sequencing of opaque and transparent glazes to create a luxurious patina and gentle glow in your work.
Explore brushwork techniques for creating textures and subtle transitions of delicate tints and muted hues and how to layer lost and found edges to suggest windswept meadows and distant trees. Investigate where to use captured negatives and establish minimal hard edges to gradually bring your work into soft focus.
Whether you work on location, from your imagination or photos, you will be amazed by this elegant, alternative method of creating the landscape.

The Painted CROW/ RAVEN – Stylized
Handsome, dark and smart – crows make ideal subject matter for contemporary, stylized painting when building with layers and blocks of shapes. We begin with a experimental underpainting to create the texture and color of darks feathers. The basic bird shape will emerge by negative painting techniques with layers of transparent and opaque acrylic. Add final embellishments and details with paint and colored pencil to give your crow personality!
Receive handouts about structure, proportions and placement of forms. Bring crow photos or use the resource material and handouts provided.

The Painted Raven – Stylized – Negative Painting With Acrylic

Ravens make ideal models for creating caricatures! The large strong beak, small eyes and dramatic poses are ideal features to exaggerate giving your bird a cantankerous attitude or comedic appearance!

We begin with a quick underpainting to establish the texture of feathers to animate the surface. The basic bird shape will emerge with negative painting layers of transparent and opaque acrylic. Emphasis will be on contrasting light and dark with a palette of black, white and one bold color. Final decorative embellishments balance the design and enhance the entertainment factor.

Receive handouts for structure, proportions and placement of forms. Bring raven photos or use the class resource material.

COST $350. Per person
