Bellissima Art Retreat

Art. Food. Beauty. Relaxation. Come to Italy this summer and awaken your senses at the Bellissima Art Retreat. This is no ordinary excursion, but an adventure of creativity and soul quenching activities you’ll never forget. This year we are hosting two retreats! Each week includes lodging in the Tuscan countryside near Cortona at a charming hillside villa, sketching, your choice of watercolor or acrylic classes (or both!), walking tours in the local villages, authentic Italian cooking classes and time to just take in the beauty of Italy. Spark your creativity, try something new, and make a memory that will last a lifetime.
