Artist Retreats

Unique and intimate artist retreats located on the property of artist Wendy Michelle Davis. Designed for experienced and/or working artists, creating in 2D, the weekend is meant to give attendees a place to create among other artist who are passionate and committed to their work. With plenty of time to work on projects of your choice, there will also be opportunity  for small and whole group critique and feedback on your work. This is a space to learn from one another by seeing  each other's creative processes, sharing experiences, knowing that we are not alone in the creative journey.


All meals are included in the cost with a variety of fresh ingredients prepared by a cook (my amazing husband Rafael) who is as passionate about food as you are about art. The setting is a peaceful semi-rural landscape with the back of the property looking out over tree tops and farm fields. We are located just outside of Waco, Texas. There are rooms available on site. See options below. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions.
