Paradise Artist Retreat - Artist Passes on sale!


The Paradise Artist Retreat will be held September 16-19 2010.

Shifting the focus from tattooing to painting, this year over one hundred artists will be painting together for four days in the hills of Western Massachusetts while attending numerous seminars and workshops. The curriculum will led by Guy Aitchison, Shawn Barber, Nick Baxter, Cory Kruger, Chris Dingwell, and Tom Strom and others. Artists will spend four days painting and learning outside during the day, and inside at night. Each day there will be two seminars and one discussion panel; there will also be figure and portrait drawing workshops from a human model. A live webcast of the event will be promoted heavily on TattooNOW.

Painting passes are $150 per artist for four days, which includes entry into the discussion panels and seminars with Guy Aitchison and Shawn Barber. The first hundred artists to buy passes also receive free entry into the opening party including a great meal! Other seminars have an additional fee. All artists must provide their own supplies, canvas and materials. You will need a portable, collapsable easel. We recommend ordering one from Dick Blick. This afforadble easel will accommodate both the performance and display of your work. If you produce more than one piece, we have alternative ways of displaying art as well. First 20 artists to sign up will receive a free signed print of the Paradise Artist Retreat poster!

The retreat will be open to the public, and many of the works created over the weekend will be auctioned off online, and in person. Merchandise, including prints and clothing, of the artwork created can be sold on consignment via ParadiseArtistRetreat.com and TattooNOW.com for a fee. There will be a book/DVD documenting the weekend, with large quality shots of the artwork produced, as well as candid interviews and in progress photos.

 

Cost: $150
