Book a private art retreat

Learn first-hand how to create unique textures, plus add depth and interest to your artwork during a three-day art retreat.

Ginger Thomas began painting as a hobby, and as she experimented, she developed an exciting technique that garnered attention from art collectors around the world.

Now she is sharing those techniques with you!

If you want to learn a different technique and receive new inspiration to move your art forward, this workshop is for you.

Perfect for beginners or the more seasoned artist.

In three days, you'll learn how to go from blank canvas to finished product, using Ginger's low-stress technique that adds texture and depth to your artwork.

Ginger provides:

  • Two 16" x 20" canvases
  • Texture medium
  • Application tools
  • Three days of one-on-one instruction
  • Lunch each day of training

You will need to bring your own paints. (You can purchase Ginger's Signature Paint Series and have it shipped to her studio ahead of time.)

At the end of the retreat, you’ll take home a gift bag, your new art tools, and your finished artwork. Finished canvases can fit in a carry-on suitcase. If you need artwork shipped, additional charges apply. See FAQ below.
