How to get here:

Ginger’s studio is located in Brandon, Mississippi, less than 20 miles (32 km) from the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN).

If you fly to Mississippi, please see the sample itinerary for arrival and departure times.

You will need to arrange your own transportation.

Car rentals are available at the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport.

Please note: Ginger’s art retreat is precisely that – a retreat. There are limited rideshare options near her location.

Where to stay:

If searching for a vacation rental, search “Brandon Reservoir, Mississippi.” When searching for a hotel, search “Flowood, Mississippi.” Ginger can answer direct location questions after you purchase your spot in the retreat.

Please note Ginger’s studio is located on the second floor, accessible by stairs.

How many other students will be present at the retreat?

The maximum number of spots is four.

What does each day look like?

See the sample itinerary above.

Where to eat:

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included in the price of the workshop.

Is Ginger’s studio connected to the Jackson, Mississippi water system that’s had troubles?


Ginger’s art studio is in a different county and under a different water system. She also makes bottled water available to her students.

The airport isn’t located in Jackson either, despite its name.

What does it cost?

The Standard Retreat Package is $1,595 (US Dollars). That includes art instruction and meals. (Transportation, hotel, and flight not included.)

If you need to ship your artwork home, an additional $100 fee will be added.
