Arts on the Rocks offers artist retreats
for women . . .
- at a crossroads
- in transition
- looking to rediscover your artist’s soul
- seeking to explore your creativity
The island of Saba, in the Dutch Caribbean is a place to savor. It’s an artist’s dream. The weather is warm. Its tropical waters and rain forests inspire. I love it.
I believe it’s the perfect place for you to get away to in winter’s cold. For me, it’s been a place to rebuild my dreams of discovering my muse. And I believe it can be that place for you, too.
I’m Wendy Schneider, and my vision for Arts on the Rocks is to provide an experience like no other in your life.
A time for exploration
Exploring your inner thoughts, your mindset, your creative flow.
And exploring your outer life—your artistic productivity, your bonding with a community of like-minded women, at least for the time you’re on the island. The retreats we’ve already had proved to me what a deep and profound experience this can be for many women. Maybe even for you, as it has been for me.
We’ll spend our days creating, learning, and getting reacquainted with our inner artist. And bringing her out into the world to produce a creation that you hold in your hand . . . finally. Not just hold in your heart or in your mind.
This is a chance for you to birth something artistic both within you and outside of yourself. I’ve been lucky enough to do that. And that’s what I want for you, too. In this special, sacred place.
Far away . . . yet so close
Saba is often called “The Unspoiled Queen” because of its pristine and undeveloped environment. That’s what I fell in love with. Only 1500 permanent residents live on Saba, and just 25,000 tourists experience the island per year. They’re mostly scuba divers, eco-tourists, nature lovers and sailors, like me and my husband.
Yet it’s only a 20-minute plane trip from St. Maarten, the airline destination from the US. Your travel time from New York to St. Maarten is approximately 4 hours.
I invite you to join me at my Artist’s Retreat on the of island Saba in February 2013.
