This four-day retreat, merging the tranquility of nature with the art of watercolor, has garnered such popularity that a second session has been added. The Bentwood Inn, celebrated for its luxurious ambiance and exceptional service, provides the perfect backdrop for this artistic journey. Renowned for its commitment to sustainability and preservation of the valley, the inn offers an idyllic setting where participants can draw inspiration from the surrounding natural beauty.

Leading the workshop is Andy Evansen, a maestro in the world of watercolor. Since his international recognition in 2005 through American Artist magazine, Evansen has become a beacon in the art community. His role as President of both the Minnesota Watercolor Society and the Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA) illustrates his influence and expertise. Unique in his achievements, Evansen is the only watercolorist to grace the Wild Side Exhibition, a testament to his mastery in capturing the essence of landscapes. His accolades, including the prestigious Bronze Medal of Honor at the American Watercolor Society Exhibition, further attest to his artistic prowess. This workshop, under Evansen's guidance, is not just a learning experience; it is an opportunity to delve into the depths of watercolor artistry.

The workshop experience at the Bentwood Inn is a harmonious blend of artistic learning and luxurious comfort. Participants will enjoy four nights of accommodation with daily housekeeping, set against the backdrop of the inn's stunning architecture and natural surroundings. Culinary delights prepared by skilled chefs include daily breakfast, evening hors d'oeuvres, and a special three-course gourmet Bistro Dinner on both the arrival and final nights. To enrich the experience, the retreat includes a half-day wildlife excursion led by expert naturalists, offering a unique opportunity to observe the diverse wildlife active in the area. This workshop, now available in two sessions, promises an unparalleled experience where art, nature, and luxury converge, creating an unforgettable artistic retreat at the Bentwood Inn.
