Bear Valley Highlands Art Workshop/Retreats
Immerse yourself in a fun and exciting art experience...

Imagine - Art workshops and painting vacations in a beautiful wilderness setting in the Okanagan
Learn - from professional acclaimed artists and instructors in small groups of up to 12 students
Enjoy - comfortable accommodation and organic meals in company of fellow artists
Be inspired - by our large yurt studio space with plenty of natural light and breathtaking mountain views
Relax - on the deck of your log chalet, watching the wildlife or paddling on our private lake

Your workshop experience starts the afternoon before the start date when you will settle into one of our log chalets  and enjoy dinner with everyone. It is a great time to prepare for the class and get to know each other.
The next morning your day begins with a healthy, buffet style breakfast, followed by classes starting at 9 am and running until 4 pm with a 1 hour lunch break and a buffet style, home cooked lunch at noon. At the end of the day we will serve dinner and there will be homemade snacks throughout the day.

For most classes you are welcome to bring a non painting partner who can enjoy one of the many hiking trails, fishing on the lake or try out one of our adventure packages in ATV, Canoeing or Kayaking.

We also offer dry camping for those of you coming with a Camper or RV or you might want to experience our authentic Sioux style tipi lodge.
