Arts West Council
Artists' Retreat - Juried Art Show - Travelling Gallery


What a great week for our June 16th-21st Artists' Retreat at Camp Wannakumbac in Riding Mountain National Park - the weather could not have been better! Five days of arting bliss filled with creative learning, exercises and exploration, lively discussions, campfire songs, artist trading card exchange, critter cuddles, great food and more! 

It was really great getting to know and learning from our 2024 Artists' Retreat Instructors - Ben Davis (Drawing), Jan Layh (Acrylics/Oils) and David Cooper (Watermedia). So much creative insight shared with us during our time there! A huge thank-you to these wonderful folks for making our 5 days there so memorable!

Below are some photos of our time there, more can be viewed here. Stay tuned for details about our 2025 Artists' Retreat!
