We specialize in private, immersion retreats for the individual aspiring or seasoned artist seeking a deeper understanding of the creative process, be it with Oil Painting, Printmaking, or Drawing.

All styles are taught: representational to abstract and narrative to figurative.


If you are fed up with copying other artists and frustrated by how long it's taking you to improve, look no further. Learning in groups doesn't allow you to delve deeper into the creative process to discover your authentic, artistic voice or get that one-on-one special attention that is required to accelerate your success as an artist. Your time will be spent learning beside a master painter, Mark Barone, with a custom program designed to meet all of your artistic needs.


We are nestled on 2.5 acres in the heart of the Southwest, in the enchanting and historic village of Corrales (the horse capital of New Mexico). You'll wake up to nature, animals, majestic mountains, and go to sleep under a blanket of stars.

All within walking distance or a short drive to restaurants, wineries, farmers markets, shopping malls and unique shops.
